According to the TV show Manswers, your core body temperature would have to be below 28 degrees Fahrenheit for your balls to literally freeze off. See link to video clip.
Dropped out of sight-slang. In literature, it's literal, when they thought Earth was flat for example.
The water freezes before it can run off causing an ice coating.
The freezing of ice is an exothermic reaction because while the water freezes it gathers "cold" and it liberates or releases heat. Enabling the water to freeze. Heat always flows from hot objects to cooler ones until everything is the same temperature.
The main purpose of these glass balls is to provide evidence of a lightning strike by shattering or falling off. If after a storm a ball is discovered missing or broken, the property owner should then check the building, rod, and grounding wire for damage.
Ice storms are basically a big freezing rain storm. As freezing rain begins to fall it forms coats of ice on the objects that it falls upon. The ice starts to accumulate and soon the weight of the ice upon tree branches, power lines, etc., becomes too much and they start to break. But how come the precipitation isn't just snow, or just rain? Freezing rain only occurs in certain weather conditions. For freezing rain to occur there must be close to 100% humidity, with upward moving air to keep it that way. Also there must be three layers of air: one cold layer, near the surface of the Earth. One warm layer just above that. And one more cold layer, at the top, where the precipitation starts. It starts out as snow in the first cold layer, as it falls it hits the warm layer and melts into rain. It continues to fall and when it reaches the 2nd cold layer it starts to cool off again. It probably won't have time to freeze again before it hits the ground or an object, so when it hits an something that is 32°F or less, it freezes instantly. That is how freezing rain is formed.
I believe what you are describing is a form of freezing rain. You can find them just about anywhere. This occurs when a droplet of rain or snow hits a cold surface, freezing rain can break branches off of trees etc. I believe what you are describing is a form of freezing rain.

cold enough to freeze your balls off
The LITERAL meaning is that you are on a handle and you fly off it.
In the old days when ships had cannons on board, the cannon balls would be kept on a brass plate with indentations in it to rest the lead cannon balls in. They would be then piled up in a pyramid on this plate, the plate was called a brass monkey. When it got really cold the plate would contract at a different rate to the balls and they would fall off. Hence the phrase - "cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey". The above appears to be an erroneous answer.

No, freezing off a blister does not hurt and it will just take a second.
Turn it off then turn it off to temporarily unfreeze it.
The warmer squash balls get, the bouncier they are. you can't play using a cold ball because it won't bounce off the walls and floor very high or well.
No Nuclear weapons were used during the cold war. The cold war was a stand off between soviet Russia and America, where they treated either with a lot of suspicion and distrust. However, it was not a 'War' in the literal sense of the word.
Maybe it is set too cold try turning the temp control back a bit. Or listen to the refrigerator does it ever turn its self off, or is it running all the time?? If it is running all the time then it is getting too cold and freezing the food - this means it might need a new thermostat (temp control)
It depends were your going. If your going somewhere cold then no, don't spend your birthday freezing your but off. but if it's warm and sunny, why not? Go to a beach and celebrate!
yeah if you cut off your balls
cut em off.
