The loudest sound ever reported on Earth happened on Aug. 27, 1883 when the idland of Krakatoa erupted. The noise was heard four hours later on the island of Rodriques, 2,968 miles away where the natives reported hearing the roars of heavy guns.

The English Parliament remained in session without a break from 1640 to 1653. That’s why it’s called “The Long Parliament.”

It was called into session by Charles I and wound up cutting off his head.

It’s kind of an appropriate Omnibit for today.

It should be noted that those responsible for Charles’ execution were themselves executed when the Royalists returned to power in 1660, some by being hanged (to near death), drawn (removal of bowels while still alive) and quartered (cut in pieces after death).

One of those subject to such was Major-General Thomas Harrison, who remained cheerfully unrepentant during his ordeal. He reached over and smacked his executioner during the disemboweling, which cause his head to be prematurely removed.

It seems much aggravation could have been avoided if Parliament merely impeached Charles.
