Did you know this little fact about Cannon Balls???

It was necessary to keep a good supply of cannon balls near the cannon on

old war ships. But, how to prevent them from rolling about the deck was the

problem. The storage method devised was to stack them as a square based

pyramid, with one ball on top, resting on four, resting on nine, which

rested on sixteen.

Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right

next to the cannon. There was only one problem — how to prevent the bottom

layer from sliding/rolling from under the others.

The solution was a metal plate with 16 round indentations, called, for

reasons unknown, a Monkey. But if this plate were made of iron, the iron

balls would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to

make them of brass – hence, Brass Monkeys.

Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than

iron when chilled. Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the

brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannon balls would

come right off the monkey.

Thus, it was quite literally, cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass

monkey. And all this time, folks thought that was just a vulgar expression?

You must send this fabulous bit of historical knowledge to at least a few

intellectual friends.
