    How To Open A Can Without A Can Opener



    I have to admit when I first saw this video by the “Youtube Celebrity” CrazyRussianHacker, my jaw dropped. I was stunned that you can actually open a can of food by just rubbing its top against a piece of concrete! It’s way too easy! *resists the extreme urge to try it out right now*

    Cans nowadays are sealed with a roller. It bends the top of the can which creates a crimp (kinda like the way you seal empanadas, or any filled pasta). The friction cuts through the top, which makes it easier for you to open the can. Take note that the open top of the can will be sharp – so please of course use it with caution, or else you will risk cutting yourself!

    If you got lost in the woods or in a desert and you only have canned food in your bag, you will have to find a small boulder or rock that has a flat surface. If you’re using a bigger can, you might need more time to get it to open. This technique is really cool and it’s one of those survival tips that you really need to learn.

    I did not know this...looks like a better result than hacking with a knife, too.

    Funny how quick we complicate the simple. I've always used a knife too

    I wanted to see them open the spam can of ammo the same way, see if the crimp is as thin....might actually be a useful method.

    Compared to when they sealed cans with lead this is a cool trick

    Whale oil beef hooked! That's probably the most useful thing I've learned today. (it was a slow day, but that's still pretty darned useful)

    ....and you have minions to do the heavy lifting.
