Korean Admiral Yi Sun-sin once won a battle against 133 Japanese ships without losing a single one of his own 13 ships. The Anglo-Zanzibar war lasted all of 38 minutes. It is the shortest recorded war in history. Nearly one tenth of all men alive today in central Asia are descended from Mongolian Emperor Genghis Khan, who clearly got around. Potatoes were introduced to Ireland in the 1500s after they were discovered by Spanish colonizers of South America. The last recorded longbow casualty in war came in 1940 at the hands of the aptly-named Lieutenant Colonel "Mad Jack" Churchill. Roman Emperor Caligula once appointed his horse, Incitatus, as a priest. He talked about making the horse a consul, but never followed through on it.
