As a child, being force-fed British history in school, I was totally confused when we got to the English Corn
Laws. The teacher was explaining that the Corn Laws actually started in the Middle Ages. I innocently raised my hand and asked, "Since corn came from the Americas and the English didn't even know that continent existed in the Middle Ages how could they have laws about corn production?"
