comment When did people first tried to limit weapons used in war?
@PatriciaShanahan: According to pages 32-33 of the cited book, the act was introduced in 1508 (during the reign of Henry VII) but the author suggests that it was motivated by the success of the longbow in earlier battles, including Agincourt. I am not sure what the number 46 signifies.

I'm pretty sure the limited technology of the time included hooks...

Where can one look up Thereau John? Google apparently has nothing.

comment Is there any speech dialogue on record on Palestine independence day given by the Great Britain Prime minister?
@Luke: Changing "Palestine" to "Israel" drastically changed the sense of the question. Victor: What do you mean by Palestinian Independence Day? 15 November 1988? 14 May 1948? Or something else?

comment Would the original readers of Lewis Carroll's books have made connections between the experiences in the books and drug use?
Confessions of an English Opium-Eater‌​ (1821) seems to be a pretty direct reference, and Wikipedia's writeup suggests that the book was quite popular.
