** In 2007, the former president of Poland, Aleksander Kwaśniewski, performed some drunken antics, like speaking incomprehensibly or trying to get into his car through the trunk. His staff claimed that it was because of the medication he had to take because of his "Filipino disease". To this day, "Filipino disease" is an euphemism for alcoholism in Poland.

* The Japanese Website/ImageBoard 2ch coined the term "home security guard" (自宅警備員, ''jitaku keibiin''), which is essentially a politer way of calling someone a {{NEET}} or {{Hikikomori}}; the implication is that they can "guard" the house because they spend all day inside on the computer. It pops up from time to time in anime; ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan''[='s=] Cuko and ''Manga/HimoutoUmaruChan''[='s=] Alex both refer to themselves using this term.

* Henry VIII's older brother Arthur was married to Catherine of Aragon, but died a few months later of an illness; she married Henry to preserve the alliance between Spain and England. Henry later used her marriage to his brother as evidence that he should be granted a divorce from her, despite Catherine's claims that the marriage had never been consummated. He ''was'' only sixteen, so we should perhaps take with a grain of salt Arthur's claims that "I have been all night in Spain."

Then again, considering recovery time of most teenagers, it's possible that he crossed the border several times but never stayed very long...
