It stays loose, So it fits in the pocket real easy. but when you are opening a bottle and apply lateral force it stiffens up, it actually work better than any other bottle opener i have used i should post a picture of mine as it looks much better than the one on the site.

mine was all the individual power ranger megazords from the original series, that actually connected to each other to form the big megazord just like in the TV show.

i think i ended up filling it with bottlerockets and wd40 awhile back

I didnt quite get these for Christmas (but w/e):
700x35 Nokian Hakkapasomething studded tires.

Not sure exactly how I feel about these tires as they are just slightly overkill for what I need, but they work perfectly and they have gotten the most use (by far) of any present.

So your family condones underage drinking or you were held back a few years and graduated when you were 21?

Either way...congrats.

haha, i was definitely not held back. I like to think my family just has a good sense of humor. It was in my "going to college" care package.
