Random Trivia: Non-ancient non-Chinese non-curses

I think one of the great all-time quotes coms from Robert F. Kennedy, who said:

There is a Chinese curse which says, 'May he live in interesting times'. Like it or not, we live in interesting times...

Of course, the fact is that this was more likely a 16-year-old British phrase purporting to be an ancient Chinese curse.  So now you know (if you didn't already).
