My second molar back on the bottom of the right side of my jaw is permanently rounded from caps. I really was a young douchebag. In my own defense, I was wise enough to temper the behavior as the tooth deteriorated. I finally quit before that final, fatal slip that knaps a huge spear head off or splits the the tooth in half.

You know, I go to the dentist every 6 months. It's never been mentioned. Not once.

The cool thing about Tungsten rings is if you ever break your finger, they are easily and safely broken in a bench vice saving you the cost of having a Dr. Cut your gold band off.


THANKS for the video!

My current ring is Titanium...It'll work.
My real wedding ring is in the safe with diamonds and such.

yea, my wedding ring is Titanium so it works for opening bottles, but when I pop a few with my teeth I am the most popular guy at the party, people love to see it.

My wedding band is gold and has been worn down over the past 11 years. I'm sure that mine wouldn't stand up to the wear & tear. It comes off & goes into the toolbox first thing in the morning before touching a car partly because of the risk of shorting & welding my hand to something, but also to keep it from being destroyed.

flat bladed screw driver, a pair of scissors, a car/house key in a pinch. you just need something flatish to get between the cap and the bottle and gently pry.

i don't bang the counter tops anymore, cause i started taking chunks out of them, and i'm not replacing particle board and formica.
