well, depends where they started building it, chronologically..
that would be a good way to assign the end and the beginning of the wall, if one were pressed to make a decision somehow.

Did Mongolians never discover boats?

Or was that cheating.

They were essentially landlocked. They were known for their abilities on horseback because they spent most of their lives on the plains, never really settling down anywhere, and not being anywhere near the sea or any real large body of water, they never found the need for boats.

You realize the wall did nothing to stop them. Gengis successfully conquered all of china and raped pretty much all the women too. He set up the largest land empire ever and is the direct ancestor of about 5% of aisa.

Who would have thought a big wall would be less than effective at stopping the mongle hoard? /sarcasm

It can be even "paper" or "hair" or a lot of other things. It depends on what kanji is used (or the context with romaji). Generaly God is kami-sama, where kami means deity.

I don't really know japanese but I assume it's kind of like both. Like it works as either a noun meaning God or as an adjective meaning godlike.

linguistic student here   
actually the L=R thing originates from japanese, where L and R are the same phoneme.  but the great wall originates from china, where L and R are different phonemes. so the joke is not really valid.

The best thing about it for me is that after two series, Karl admits that the idea is finished, at least as far as he is concerned. He has now seen so much of the world, and witnessed so much weird crap, that he is now a very different person. He is living proof of what happens when even a self-confessed idiot broadens their mind.

From the age of empires wiki:
"The Sea Wall is a unique defensive structure found only on the "Walls of Constantinople" level of the Attila the Hun campaign in Age of Empires II. It also appears in the final Attila the Hun mission in the game, together with its counterpart, the Sea Gate. It is very similar in appearance to Palisade Wall. It is found to the north of Constantinople, in the harbour, and defends the city from seafaring vessels."

I always hated how the gates and walls never lined up. In the original AoE, or course, there were no gates. I would built a corridor leading into my base, lined with towers to make an impossible gauntlet for enemies. The AI kept sending its troops straight in, because they always preferred to walk around walls instead of attacking them.
