TipBit: Wasn’t that a (Tea) Party
Everyone who’s anyone has heard of the Boston Tea Party. And everyone who’s anyone knows the incident was sparked when the damned Brits raised U.S. tea taxes, right? Wrong. The raid on the ships in Boston Harbor was provoked when the British Parliament passed the Tea Act of 1773.

The Tea Act … sounds harmless, doesn’t it? Like an innocent play featuring stuffed animals and miniature cups and saucers. It wasn’t. The act gave Britain’s East India Company a monopoly on the import of tea into the colonies — and squeezed American tea companies out of the process. In protest, Samuel Adams and his band of merry men (which included John Hancock) trashed a few tons of East India’s finest tea. The protest, however, had nothing to do with U.S. taxes being raised. Still, the affair rooted Sam Adams’ place in history, and ultimately got his name on millions of beer bottles.

There are two things wrong with this assumption. Firstly, Wal-Mart hadn’t yet spread its retail tentacles around the planet and, secondly, no witches were burned at the stake during Witchstock 1692. Of the 150 unlucky souls accused of witchcraft, 20 were sentenced to death.

Of the 20, 19 were hanged and one was stoned. Yeah, the bad kind of stoned.
