As I sit here with my thumb only just healed from the last time I tried to cut some cheddar, my hands speckled with tiny red marks mapping the myriad of injuries they suffer every day, I basically just spent that whole video flinching and stifling shrieks of fear. If I tried even one of those, I'd be short at least a couple of fingers now.

Note to self... mountain goat skull last resort.

The latch on the back door of my Mitsubishi Montero is a perfect bottle opener. I almost suspect they did it on purpose.

A lot of those seem... Not recommended.
And does anyone else think the guy at the end looks like Redneck Matt Smith?

These are Real Men, doing whatever it takes to get to that precious brew.

Occasionally real stupid, but Real Men nonetheless.

I actually knew a guy who used to do it with his teeth. He was Welsh, though. You have to expect that kind of thing.

I knew two young women (in their 20s) in Nigeria who could open bottles with their teeth, no prob-lay-mo.

Yeah, an old mate of mine could do that (but he'd only do it when he was drunk)... he was from Swindon, which is practically Wales.

My very first college party, in the student slums just off campus, was a myriad of firsts. I'd seen someone remove a bottle cap with a lighter using some sort of leverage, but had never tried it. I'm wandering around this party drinking shitty keg beer when I see two girls trying (and failing) to utilize this method. I walk up and offer to open their beers with the lighter. I'm thinking to myself, "WTF dude, you have no idea what you're doing!" After an initial fumble shrugged off to heavy drinking I pop one of the tops with such ease that it surprised even me. The other cap came off just as easy and there I was impressing my first pair of girls with simple leverage.
I sincerely believe that one can learn anything very quickly if the end goal is to impress a possible sexual partner.

So, while these are impressive in their own right...there is no need to go to these extremes. Out there somewhere are people that will be impressed by even the most mundane of tricks.

It's a good thing you didn't use the other end of the lighter because they'd have used their new knowledge in the form of clubs to beat down the fire-wizard.

Pizza as a bottle opener. That's a new one.

fearfulsymmetry: "... he was from Swindon, which is practically Wales."

Read that as, "Sweden, which is practically Wales."

Far more meta.
