I'm sitting at my girlfriend's place with 15 Sam's in the Fridge...

She doesn't have a bottle opener... I don't have my gerber on me.

Its raining and 47 degrees, so I'm trying to avoid the mile walk to CVS to buy one

Bic lighter. If you know the Bic technique, then many things can be used.

Got a plastic lighter?

Edge of a railing?


ETA: Damn 12 seconds!

Got a disposable lighter?

Use it as a lever, it'll chew up the end of the lighter, but the cap will pop off.

Place finger and thumb around neck of bottle 1/2" from the cap.

Insert base end of lighter.

'pop'

ETA, um, yeah, what they said.

No lighter. This is a "semi-dry" dorm (i.e. I'm 21, she's not, so there shouldn't be beer in her fridge right now), so walking out and opening em on the railings wouldn't be the best idea.

Just use the edge of the countertop.

The scars left behind will serve as a reminder for her to keep a bottle opener handy.

Seriously though, if you have a scissor jack you can
open it....not that I've ever pressed one of those into service
at a large party in high school.

Anything flat and around inch wide that you can use a lever?

I just popped a beer with a standard house key (for academic purposes only of course). I KNOW you have a key on you.

are you serious ?

use a fork.. leverage it under the cap and your knuckles.


wow,.

edit:

you can use a key..

a quarter even . .

That little D shaped latch on the door frame of your car was designed to be the perfect size for taking the tops off a beer. It is kinda hard to use when I am driving though!

Place a LaRue order and wait for the 'dillo. The wait will serve as punishment and a reminder to keep an opener handy next time.

Do you have a carabiner or a butter knife with a thick base?

Hold the bottle cap firmly inside your index finger and thumb so you are gripping the cap almost all the way around. Without moving your fingers at all wedge something between the cap and your finger and use your finger as the fulcrum.

Should pop right off.

I haven't smoked in years but I still carry a lighter for this reason. And for making fire.

ETA: Pocket knives work to, but NOT the blade.

Used her bedframe... only ledge that would hold up to this use w/o damage.

Thanks guys.

You need to hand in your man card RIGHT NOW. Kids these days.



Alright, place the edge of the bottle cap on the edge of the counter. Put lots of downward pressure on the bottle, and smack the cap with your fist. Pop! Enjoy.

1911 Ejection Port.

1911 Lanyard Loop.

Put the edge of the cap on your boot heel and bash the heel of your hand onto the bottolcap.

I just tried with a quarter and couldn't do it. The quarter is just too short to get enough leverage. I have a stong grip too.

Pops right off with a house key though.

The old US Army issue mess kit spoon works like a charm. But then again, i have one of these to do it for me...



Wear it 'round my neck ever so often.

the strike plate on a door works. Pop the cap on the hole the lock bolt goes into.

You weren't the smartest one of the litter were you?

Just use another bottle. Its not that hard.

Wait a second...you're 21 and don't have a keychain bottle opener?

WTF?!

Somebody skipped dorm-room(101)

1) Crack open door
2) Place bottle cap edge on top edge of door
3) Pull down

If you are too short for this method... the hinge works.
Using the top edge of the door puts the bottle scars in a place where they are unlikely to be spotted.

Place a quarter against the edge of the lighter to avoid scraping the plastic off.

A key. Everybody has 'em and they work just fine. Only takes a minute.

42% of the reason I got married is so I could wear my titanium bottle opener all the time. She even yells at me when I don't.
Link Posted: 1/19/2008 12:47:20 PM EST
My method is the door frame method. Put the edge of the bottle's cap on the bottom edge of the metal lock plate in the frame, and hit the top of the bottle with your first or palm.

Put the sharp edge of the bottle top on the side of a table at a slight angle, then slam your hand down on the top of the cap.

It works, but chews up the table.

That would be because my "dorm room" is in a barracks at a military college--the dry dorm policies there are actually enforced, with severe consequences...

She has the only can opener I've ever seen without a bottle opener...

Also, I'm gonna have to try the 1911 ejection port method sometime... that IS my everyday carry piece when I'm home on furlough.

My experience drinking with AFA and aggies would indicate that they have a DR(101) course as well.
