I have gotten some nasty scraped fingers doing that one. Still the go to stand by. Only problem is I don't smoke so I usually don't have a lighter either.

Stayed in a cheap hotel recently and used the pull handle on the dresser.

Guy I knew (former Vol TE) was opening longnecks with his teeth at the Indy 500 one year. One wouldn't open so he said "f it" and tossed it to the side. It hit some dude in the head and he was all hot about it until he got a good look who threw it.

Practice a bit on your own, the beer will probably explode on you the first few times.

Just gotta keep your knuckles out of the way. But yeah, that's the trick; just gotta find any 90* angle

Hopefully nobody can tell I'm a seasoned alcoholic...

Used to be able to open them on about any door hinge on Chevys made in the early and mid '60's.

It's easily done with your molars.. The key is to set it at the right angle. You don't bite down hard at all. Then it's just leverage. You do it slowly.. I repeat slowly. If someone can be there to show you how it's as simple as skipping a rock

?? a quarter is larger in diameter than the width of the paper and wouldn't have an edge that would be in contact with the cap the way the paper is angled.

what am I missing?
