the baby boom is singularly my favorite event in american history. I mean seriously all the WWII soldiers came home and had enough victory sex that they created one of the greatest population increases in the history of the country

"What Russell did that was so brilliant was make the companion our way into the story. And the companion was Rose." -Neil Gaiman, The Doctors Revisited - The Ninth Doctor
“Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”; while it is commonly attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette, there is no record of this phrase ever having been uttered by her. It appears in Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Confessions, his autobiography (whose first six books were written in 1765, when Marie Antoinette was nine years of age, and published in 1782). The context of Rousseau’s account was his desire to have some bread to accompany some wine he had stolen; however, in feeling he was too elegantly dressed to go into an ordinary bakery, he thus recollected the words of a “great princess”. As he wrote in Book 6:
Enfin je me rappelai le pis-aller d’une grande princesse à qui l’on disait que les paysans n’avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit : Qu’ils mangent de la brioche.Finally I recalled the stopgap solution of a great princess who was told that the peasants had no bread, and who responded: “Let them eat brioche.”
Rousseau does not name the “great princess” and he may have invented the anecdote, as Confessions was, on the whole, a very unreliable autobiography.
The first question—the oldest question in the universe hidden in plain sight.
