|Open a beer, or a church.|
5: Church key – This makes the list only because of the name. You didn’t know it was called a church key, which is pretty cool. Level of Difficulty: not at all.
|How many vices can this facilitate?|
4: Lighter – What’s cooler than a high schooler smoking? A high schooler drinking beer. And if that high schooler opens the beer with a lighter? Forget about it! Level of Difficulty: 14 year olds can do it.
3: Table – This is the first thing you learn from an upper-classman in college, where church keys are all but absent, and nobody has wedding rings. The thing to be careful about is breaking glass tables, chipping Formica tables, and gouging wood tables… This is a pretty dangerous way to open a beer. Level of Difficulty: college.
|I do (want another round).|
2: Ring – My wedding band is titanium, and with a little practice (and inspiration from my friend Matt) I learned to pop a top with the ring—awesome and so handy. My wife isn’t the biggest fan of the idea, but it has come in handy. Level of Difficulty: requires training.
1: A CD – Remember CDs? They were music before iPods. Anyway, I’m sure this works with a Blu-Ray too. I can’t vouch that this will not ruin your music collection, but it’s worth a try if you forgot to return the Celine Dion your aunt bought you (you can’t re-gift it, and you’ll never get a taker on eBay). Level of Difficulty: ninja.
