    that amazing, leave it to the japanese to re-invent the bottle opener.

    darkmother - i always assumed that the opening the beer with the ring thing was a right of passage, something to look forward to for the engineering students still opening beers with their teeth.

    I just use a bic lighter or key to open up beer bottles... Usually I don't even bother to twist them open because its so easy to pop off the top with the lighter.

    i'm not sure i can picture this being done.

    i've seen beer opened with a spoon a few times too. what's wrong with carrying around a swiss army knife for such situations?

    Bic Lighter....piece of cake.
    He might be a sociopath, but he's a Mcgyver when opening beers.

    if no opener is available then my teeth usually work as a good substitute...to be further discussed at safety meeting...

    I think second order of business should be riding recumbents thru the hood...i mean theres definitely safety issues there...who hasnt heard of or even known someone to have been recumbent jacked...and then theres of course the further reprocussions with recumbent drivebys!! very deadly. guard yuh grillz!!

    edit: I need one of those mystical push-n-pop openers

    Yeah, I must have missed out. Might have had something to do with me starting university when I was in my mid 20's. I didn't hang out with other engineering students anyway, there are annoying and smell funny.

    I have never made to open a beer with my teeth, as I have witnessed what happens when this goes badly. I have seen an eye socket used as well. (in the military, where machismo is sold by the pound)

    Uh, while the guy in this video is a total dumbass who's parents buy him unnecessarily expensive toys to abuse, you do the same thing but with a bic lighter. Its simple. Remind me next time we are near beer.

    yes he winked over the the beer cap, squeezed and sloooowly cranked it ...psssst ...open. One of the most disturbing things I've ever witnessed. He was so proud of himself too, which was even more disturbing.

    Geez. That robot is cool I guess, but if I want to wait 5 minutes for someone to serve me a beer and still spill it all over the place I can go to a bar!

    amazing! it took thousands of dollars of engineering and countless watts of energy to accomplish something a human being can do in ten seconds. what's the term for that? over-engineering?

    My colbert costume doesn't translate well to biking, how can I spread truthiness and the american way while riding something that is human powered!

    I kid, but I just found out I have to work till 8 on Friday anyways which makes the question of CM kinda moot.

    Never seen a bottle opened with a lighter? Make it a stubby and you have a classic bit of Canadiana. The Swiss Army is for the wine.

    Go for the Colbert outfit with this bad boy. Only use the throttle when "Corking" and you will be alright.

    As much as I would love to ride around in my costume, the idea of a 5kph ride on streets with no traffic isnt too appealing for me. Plus I have 2 other costume parties to go to so I am holding out till Sat. I was thinking of perhaps a safety meeting then going to Bills gig.

    Was a rescheduling sub-committee request forwarded to the secretary of the steering committee in regards to rescheduling? Bear in mind the impact of a reschedule should be considered in an impact study that will produce a report that reports it's findings to the rescheduling committee and ultimately the steering committee, of which wives and girl friends' have house control.
