I bought a Mexican Coke at a gas station yesterday, and as I was driving away I remembered that they don’t have twist-offs caps.
As I looked around my car’s interior for something to pry it open with, I thought with all seriousness “Why isn’t there a bottle opener hidden somewhere in the lower part of a car’s dashboard?!” before realizing that’s actually a terrible idea in other contexts.
there is, in most of ’em – you just gotta find it.
that said, any sturdy key combined with your thumb is a bottle opener.
Once upon a time, gas stations always had bottle openers on the pumps. I never really thought about a reason for removing them other than the fact that twist caps took over.
Meanwhile, most pocket knives have something that works as a bottle opener in a pinch. I seem to use the ersatz bottle opener more than any other tool on my Leatherman Micra, these days.
This is why you should have a saber in the car. http://www.metafilter.com/11942/The-dramatic-way-to-open-champagne
