2. The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes.
3. Dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties are registered blood donors.
4. A snail can sleep for 3 years.
5. The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
6. The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.
