Disappointed it did not involve vodak.

Really good for soup.

Was that dog food?

Really?  Is it normal to sell it in cans?  I would have thought it would be more efficient to sell dry, like oatmeal or grits.

Uh huh.  Let's see him do that with a can of tuna.

Nothing like a ragged cut that turns into gangrene or tetanus when you're out in Siberia.

I'll stick with these Russians, their method is much cleaner.

AeAe: Uh huh.  Let's see him do that with a can of tuna.


That's where the other method comes into play. You wear down the lid by grinding it away on a flat rock to wear down the bead around the rim, then you just pop off the cap.

This is a new low.

A no-value-added Gismodo link of a YouTube ripoff of a Liveleak rippoff of a YouTube vid, removing the fact the Grigory1's channel has lots of similar "survival" vids.

/shakes tiny vodak soaked fist at caution

But my link does play on tablets.

Their method is a bit reckless as it's asking for a massive laceration if the lid hits a finger. I'd push down the lid to break the seal instead of squeezing the can sides.

handy if you're too drunk to get out of your boat without tipping it over.  Otherwise, i'll just drop a buck at the mini-mart for a can opener.

Or, as the great Jerome K Jerome might have put it:
Then Harris tried to open the tin with a pocket-knife, and broke the knife and cut himself badly ; and George tried a pair of scissors, and the scissors flew up, and nearly put his eye out.
While they were dressing their wounds, I tried to make a hole in the thing with the spiky end of the hitcher, and the hitcher slipped and jerked me out between the boat and the bank into
two feet of muddy water, and the tin rolled over, uninjured, and broke a teacup.
Then we all got mad. We took that tin out on the bank, and Harris went up into a field and got a big sharp stone, and I went back into the boat and brought out the mast, and George
held the tin and Harris held the sharp end of his stone against the top of it, and I took the mast and poised it high up in the air, and gathered up all my strength and brought it down.
It was George's straw hat that saved his life that day. He keeps that hat now (what is left of it), and, of a winter's evening, when the pipes are lit and the boys are telling stretchers about the
dangers they have passed through, George brings it down and shows it round, and the stirring tale is told anew, with fresh exaggerations every time.
Harris got off with merely a flesh wound.
After that, I took the tin off myself, and hammered at it with the mast till I was worn out and sick at heart, whereupon Harris took it in hand.
We beat it out flat; we beat it back square; we battered it into every form known to geometry but we could not make a hole in it. Then George went at it, and knocked it into a shape, so strange, so weird, so unearthly in its wild hideousness, that he got frightened and threw away the mast. Then we all three sat round it on the grass and looked at it.
There was one great dent across the top that had the appearance of a mocking grin, and it drove us furious, so that Harris rushed at the thing, and caught it up, and flung it far into the middle of the river, and as it sank we hurled our curses at it, and we got into the boat and rowed away from the spot, and never paused till we reached Maidenhead.

That and those metal shavings will keep your iron level up to combat the inevitable blood loss on those jagged edges.  It's win win.

You might try using a browser other than IE6 or Netscape.

Video worked fine in Chrome.

Yes, yes, as every 7 year old, spoon-bending, would-be magician knows, bending metal weakens it til it breaks.

*pats subby on the head* "Amazing" indeed. Next, we're going to introduce subby to the wonders of the remote control.

And bloodier. Good way to shread the shiat out of your finger when you squeeze the can.

That was a lot of dialogue monologue to explain what he was doing. Or maybe it just felt that way because he talks like the Russian Micro Machines guy.

I did't understand a single word of that.

And always be sure to wear your reflective safety vest.

In another video, he snaps a Siberian prisoner's neck in only 1/4 the time.
