And in December 1983 we were issued Balls to the Wall.
Sorry for the Russian overlay, it's the only one on YT.
Imagine being butthurt for 250 years.
Don’t think that was the own the person that sent out that tweet thought it was.
To be fair, an absolutely enormous amount of tea was destroyed. There were copycat events in other colonies afterwards, too.
I can see why they'd still be upset.
You have to figure that some of that tea leaked out into the water. I wonder how the fish liked it.
They were probably absolutely wired
1774: Boston Tea Party spoils the taste of fish
“Letters from Boston complain much of the taste of their fish being altered. Four or five hundred chests of tea may have so contaminated the water in the Harbour that the fish may have contracted a disorder, not unlike the nervous complaints of the human body. Should this complaint extend itself as far as the banks of Newfoundland, our Spanish and Portugal fish trade may be much affected by it.”
As a kid my parents would make me tea & cream of wheat for breakfast every morning. That’s about the most hot tea I’ve ever had in my life.
Every once in the while I make a cup in the winter. As it’s less potent than coffee.
I have green tea with breakfast semi-regularly. No sugar. I kind of lost my taste for black tea recently, and I can’t drink that straight. A little milk in black tea, as the Brits do, can be quite good though instead of sugar.
@BigToe would go to Radio Shack.
Milk is for the poor.
A Methodological Discussion of Caffeine Research and Animal Avoidance Behavior
The fish were wired
I looked it up. They dumped around 92,000 pounds of tea in the harbor. At the time it was worth around £10,000.
In today’s monies, that’s around $1.7 million. That’s a lot of goddamn tea.
And that 1.7 million isn't a perfect equivalent value, that's just basic accounting for inflation. The buying power of that same amount of money was WAY higher than it is now. It was a LOT of tea. Enough to give 9 or 10 cups of tea to everyone in the 13 colonies. Probably 4x or even 15x more than that, because you can get multiple brews out of compacted hunks of tea.
An insane amount of tea. It is not properly communicated how much tea it was.
@deadhead history stuff is happening if you want in
Black coffee with like a shot of Irish whiskey was pretty much the preferred choice of morning hot drink for my grandparents. Then again people drank alcohol all day long back then even at work.
Is this what you tell people while eating your scones with ranch dressing?
I drink a shit ton of iced tea, does that count?
