Default Emergency!!! No Bottle Opener!!

A friend of mine who is in the military came home for a few days, so I decided to get us some beer. I made a 6 pack of assorted micros and got him a six of rolling rock.

Anyway, we went to our buddy's garage to spent the evening drinking a little bit and catching up (it had been 3 months since we last saw eachother)

but then we realized that there were no bottle openers on the premises.....

It was a real pain not having one. We were in a garage, so we found a pair of pliers that worked, but they were a pain to use.... especially after a few beers had been consumed.

So I learned my lesson. I now have a bottle opener on my key chain

Look at Youtube...having watched that...If I were naked in the desert I could figure out how to open a bottle....and I'll never have a bottle opener on my key ring again.

a Bic lighter can open beers.

also I've seen someone fold a piece of paper up, and pry open a cap.
