Can someone please explain/link to vid of how to open a bottle with a piece of paper? I assume you would have to roll it really tight, wrap it under the cap lip and then use your hand to lever off the cap?

In my retarded college days I occasionally used my teeth. So glad I still got em. Ha. Another time I was hammered and tried opening a bottle with another bottle. There was lots of blood and my girlfriend was not very gentle when pulling the glass shards out of my hand. Did I mention I was retarded?

+1 for the Aggie ring. Always turns heads in front of folks who have never seen it before. Other than that, I've used my tailgate, screwdriver, fork handle, and countertop.

The metal hinges on the outdoor fridge... a quick, firm hit right on the corner of the metal piece, pops them open every time.

Cigarette lighter also does the trick nicely if you don't have a metal hinge readily available.
