    The thing that sorta throws a glitch in this -- if he uses a knife at the end to pry it open, I'll bet he could have used it to open it. Still, probably less messy w/ this technique.

    His method would work in the abscence of a knife though. All it really requires is an absive surface. Heck, with a little creativity in an urban landscape, you could even find overhead concrete to rub on and avoid the loss of liquid, but you might end up with concrete dust in your food.

    I also liked a related video that showed how to use a spoon to open a can.

    I've got one too, but it is at home in my desk drawer with one of my old dog tags. I carry a swiss knife these days. P-38s were damn handy when you needed one.
