    For some reason I'm looking at 'quicklime' in Wikipedia and see this...

    That's the first time I've ever heard of 'chemical warfare' or a trick like that used in naval warfare back then. Or even in land battles. It seems like an excellent idea, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Using quicklime for stage lighting ('being in the limelight') was also enlightening.

    Very interesting info, thank you.
    It might be useful the next time I get a job as a ninja. :D :p
