I've never read a book, that sure is a lot of tea
But this website www.bostonteapartyship.com/boston-tea-party
Confirms both the tons and the "today's worth" statistics
"340 chests of British East India Company tea, weighing over 92,000 pounds (roughly 46 tons), onboard the Beaver, Dartmouth, and Eleanor were smashed open with axes and dumped into Boston Harbor the night of December 16, 1773. The damage the Sons of Liberty caused by destroying 340 chests of tea, in today’s money, was worth more than $1,700,000 dollars. The British East India Company reported £9,659 worth of damage caused by the Boston Tea Party. According to some modern estimates, the destroyed tea could have brewed 18,523,000 cups of tea!"
Can any history people verify
I haven't been able to find anything supporting the claim that tea bricks were used outside of Asia on wikipedia, it sounds about right though. I did find out that tea bricks were used as currency in some parts of Asia due to the high value of tea at the time, which is neat!
Edit: According to this, the tea dumped into the Boston Harbour was not in the form of bricks.
I’d be curious to see some info about how much of a financial impact it actually made on Great Britain. That time period was the golden age of imperial “trade companies” that were worth trillions in adjusted dollars. A million is a lot to most people, but to a global empire? Did they even notice anything besides the symbolism?

Why can’t I get more than one? I tried pressing A multiple times, as well as holding it down. Still loved my solo Dino, though.
Because this image is years old, they could have changed it.

i feel like pragerU is trying so hard
I don't know why the fuck YouTube thinks I want PragerU to teach me how to own libtards after literally marathoning ContraPoints for 4 straight hours but God DAMMIT I want to stop seeing those adds.
I’m starting to think Prager isn’t the right university for me, how do I transfer my credits?
This argument is so fucking stupid HAVE YOU SEEN HOW MUCH ART THERE IS THESE DAYS
Tumblr alone gets like 70 million new drawings a day we are getting 100s of masterpieces every hour but you dont see any of that because you're a bunch of miserable old men who are just looking for excuses to hate the modern day because they can't say racial slurs in public anymore
God i hate Prager U, if i wanted to hear angry old men complain about leftists i'd just go to a country club and say the word transsexual
Well fine! I'll make my own happy chemical, with blackjack, and hookers!
Hi body, I want to make something very clear to you: this is not how any of this works. Just cause you moved a lot for a grand total of.. once, it doesn't mean I'll have anything to work with in order to create your precious happy chemical, and also, you need to drink the splashy liquid more often than you do drink the good ol' Liver Destroyertm, if you weren't aware.
You need to do all that shit on the regular, not only once in your life, in order to expect any sort of actual results.
Stop fucking me over every chance ya get and then maybe we can strike up a deal.
For some reason I read brain as brian and was very confused for a second there.
And suddenly this was a very tense hostage negotiation.
