Open a can without using a can opener


Don’t have a can opener?  No problem, these crazy Russians show us how to quickly open a tin can without using any tools other than concrete which can pretty much be found anywhere.   The basis for this is that tin cans are formed with a rolled lip, which means the lid is placed on the can and a machine rolls it with the top of the can creating a sealed can.

By turning the can upside down and rubbing it against concrete in a sanding like fashion you are cutting the seam in the roll.  Once the liquid begins to seep out just give the can a little squeeze and watch the top pop right open!
