The Historic Truth!
I received this little canny historical snippet from my friend Neil:

"The Canning Industry is Celebrating 200 years since the invention of the Tin Can, but I understand it took more than 50 Years to invent the CAN OPENER. Thats what I call frustration!!!

They forgot to reveal that it was the Lead solder on the cans  that poisoned the Crews  on the Frankin Expedition , trying to find the North West Passage . The man who  succeeded  in discovering the fate of the Crew and the NorthWest Passage  was an Orcadian  . John Rae who was working amongst the Native Canadians and  who is celebrated by a very fine  monument inside St Magnus Cathedral."

Neil is an Orcadian.
