Just use a rubber glove. It gives perfect grip and works every damn time.

F1_Fan: That was the stupidest farking list I've seen in a while.  It looks like notes from a brainstorming session where 7 of the people felt they should say something so it appeared that they were participating.

The list needed at most 4 entries:

1) Hot Water
2) Grippier material
3) The Tap
4) Jar opening tool.

A knife?!?!  Really... a knife?!?!  What retard uses a knife to open a jar.

PROTIP: Frequently it's a difference in air pressure that's keeping a lid sealed on a jar. Each 1 PSI differential between the outside and inside of a jar is an additional 7-12 pounds of air pressure pushing down on the lid. Trying to open a mayonnaise jar with a 2 PSI differential? It's roughly the same as trying to unscrew a lid with a 25-pound weight dangling from it in addition to the thread friction. Slipping a knife in between the lid and the thread equalizes the pressure and removes that downward force.

This has been your elementary-school-level science lesson for the day. Enjoy your graham cracker and juice box.
