Parking On Tea Cups & More
Every once in a while some tea news pops up that doesn't have much to do with actually drinking tea. Here are a few examples.
I'm still trying to figure out how you'd go about parking a car on tea cups (one under each wheel, apparently). I'm guessing it had something to do with a crane. As for the why, beats me. Check out the photo at AdRants - click it to get to the larger version.
Memo to pissed off people looking to make a statement - protests modeled after the Boston Tea Party have been done to death. The latest comes from Illinois, where the lieutenant governor is calling for residents to mail tea bags to the electric company to protest rate hikes. The USPS doesn't like it. More here.
Every once in a while an article turns up about a cup of tea used for self defense. Here's the latest, from the BBC News.
Here's an unhappy tale about the perils of drinking tea in Bangladesh. Though I reckon this sort of thing could happen just about anywhere.
Last up is some info that's not really about tea, but it was just too good not to pass along. It's about a Scottish bottled water company who are making some pretty lofty claims for their product, including some that have to do with cancer. As always, in these cases, be sure your you-know-what detector is fully armed.
