Default Three things to open beer

Inspired by the ingenuity and can-do attitude of all the homebrewers on this site, i thought it would be interesting to see how many things we could name that will work as bottle openers. The rules are simple. Name three things that you can see or touch right now, that you either have used, or are pretty sure you could use to open a bottle of beer (smashing it doesn't count)... I'll go first- three things i have used- an 1 1/4" x 1" x 1" copper tee, a padlock, and a stapler

In my garage so: a paint can opener, a Starr bottle opener that I attached to my workbench, and a hammer. Not sure the hammer would be a great opener, but TECHNICALLY, it WILL open the bottle.

Any paper currency can be rolled and used to open beer bottles.

"Bet you that $10 bill I can open this beer with it."

I'm in my office at work so...I've got my opener on my keychain (always with me), my belt buckle might work, and I suppose I could pry one open with the edge of my stapler.

My teeth (when I was younger/dumber...no more!), the edge of a table top, and a lighter.

i usually use the wall mounted opener next to my fridge. other than that, i use a Bic. the dollar bill trick is always a hit, and an easy way to get folks to buy you a beer at the bar, even if they don't mean to.

The table, pocket knife, and earlier this week I used a pair of vice grips that was closer that the nearest bottle opener.
