Loudest Bell


If you have heard that noise before, it is quite likely that you have heard a bell.

Bells were invented by Ben Gawan, a steel worker who fell head-first into a bucket of molten metal.

When his corpse was finally freed, colleagues discovered that, when struck with a mallet, the negative Gawan-impression removed from the bucket made a pleasing sound.

Big Ben was later named after Ben Gawan, and is also the name of the Houses of Parliament, England.

The loudest bell is the one they ring at deaf school to tell all the kids that school has finished.
