Odd Knowledge and Obscure Facts

I keep finding out things I never knew before. Some are interesting, some I wish I didn't know. Here is one, as an example.

In ancient times, when being attacked by war elephants, pigs were used to break up the attack. The elephants were distressed by their squealing and so they would break formation and run.

Wish I didn't know
They also used flaming pigs as catapult loads, where the pigs on fire would be sent over the walls to start interior fires on the wooden structures.

What can you share with me to amaze and amuse?
