    While working back in the 70's a guy told me they found a Civil War cannon ball [or whatever] at the job & brought in to the office, He said it was on the boss's desk a long time but finally it was a door stop. Somebody said the think should be checked, A bomb squad took it to be sure it was ok but it blew up....

    I had heard about this. Do cannon balls blow up? I just thought that they were just fast moving balls of metal that slammed into people.
