The edge of the counter, a butter knife, pair of pliers, this isn't rocket science

That looked like much heavier paper than standard printer paper. Would that make a huge difference?

A key, a lighter... it's not like you're trying to move the world here, the lever only needs to be so long and the fulcrum is your hand.

Aye, it just so happens that I tend to have a lighter in my pocket is all.

I've used the cap of another bottle to to it. It wasn't as clean as this, but it worked.

I concur. This isn't even the most inventive.

Heh. I was once over in Spain for a conference, where at least the cheaper local beers have twist-offs. One day they set out some beer for us and I grab one and pop it open, and this Dutch guy looks at me like I just pulled a rabbit out of my hat and asks "What sort of contraption is that, some kind of twist...off...cap??"

Uncorking a bottle of wine with a shoe, is far more impressive.

In all honesty, I think the only time I've encountered a beer bottle with a twist off cap, it was an American beer.

/Corona, perhaps.

Paper shops?

Seriously, it's the most common size of paper in the world, and the fact that it's based on the golden ratio just makes it a bit more sexy.

I am old and have printed things for most of my life.  I have never seen A4 sized paper in use or for sale.  The US is just different.

Well, yeah, but the US is weird like that.

The vast majority of people on this planet use A4, the metric system, and non-middle-endian date formats.

America just likes to weird it up.

I've never been in a location with paper that didn't have something better than paper to open a bottle with.

Strange it isn't called A5 paper huh?

The aluminum pull that was across the top edge of every wardrobe insert drawer in the 80's was the perfect bottle opener.  The desks had the same pull.  I went out to look for pictures but couldn't find one.  But if you were in during the 80's and 90's, you know the type.
 
2017-04-16 08:45:40 PM  
I've never been able to do the bend something hard around the finger trick, but positioning the edge of the cap on something hard (counter, board, rock...) and smacking the top with your other hand seems to work fine. Can leave a ding in the surface though. Proceed with caution.

I prefer cans.  I get the tactile feedback with the glug glug glug on the volume that I am getting and can meter accordingly.  Bottles just go down too quickly.

Also, the tabs can be turned in different directions to mark what can is yours.  Mine are always to the right, my buddy's is always to the left and my other buddy's is always straight up.  Been that way since high school.

It's kind of stupid that twist off caps have not become universal.  I can't imagine them costing significantly more to manufacture or install.
