Tea bags were first introduced in China as a method for preserving the flavor of tea during the Tang Dynasty in 618-907 A.D. But it wasn’t until the early 20th century that they were distributed commercially and used in place of traditional metal tea infusers.

Thomas Sullivan, a New York tea merchant who may or may not have been homosexual, began sending samples of his loose leaf teas in silk sachets. Customers mistakenly thought the sachets were supposed to be used in the same way as metal tea infusers, by dropping the entire bag into a cup of boiling water.

Realizing the genius in his customers’ mistake, Sullivan quickly patented the idea and, thus, it was by sheer happenstance that the modern tea bad came to be.

Watch A Rainbow Flag Drift Through Outer Space And Spread Homosexuality Across The Universe

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.
