How To: Open A Can With No Opener (Or Anything Else)

November 19, 2013


Listen: I'm sick, so bear with me. And not sick like somebody who will eat food off the ground, sick like on meds and my brain feels like a cloud. It's even harder to think than normal (which was already near impossible). This is a video tutorial by Youtuber CrazyRussianHacker (arguably one of the most dangerous men in the world) of how to open a can without any tools. The secret? Rubbing the top on concrete to expose where the top and body of the can are joined, then giving the thing a nice firm squeeze. BOOM -- tuna. I suppose it's a little neater than repeatedly smashing the can on the ground until it explodes, but some of us don't mind eating off the ground. "I thought you just said you weren't sick like that." Haha, I am ALWAYS sick like that. I'm just bonus sick right now.

Keep going for the video, then go home and impress your roommates with your new zombie apocalypse survival skill.

Thanks to David, A.R. and Lana, who agree the coolest thing about zombie apocalypse survival skills is never having to perfect them BECAUSE IT ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.

    CrazyRussianHacker is annoying. I like Boris better.

  • Alex Lampe

    turning on the youtube captions makes this much better.

    Russian tuna is a rip-off. It looks like it's more than half water.

    Grinding on the can. tee hee hee.

  • Michael Knight

    except he is using a tool. the huge chunk of cement.

  • Micheal Reeve

    concrete is pretty much anywhere. Its a material, not a tool. The only tool here is you and your attempt to troll.

  • Michael Knight

    no, noncrete isn't pretty much anywhere/everywhere. you go hiking out in the woods and bring a can but forgot your can opener, guess what NO CEMENT. if you are in an environment that has cement GUESS WHAT you are probably close to a can opener.
    you name a tool that isn't made out of a 'material' genius.
    looks like you are the troll who doesn't think before pounding on your keyboard.

  • Hugh Jass

    You can use a rock or any abrasive surface to open the can. You don't need concrete specifically.

  • Michael Knight

    so, you would agree that you can't open the can with ONLY your hands? you need something else to assist. well, guess what that something is referred to as a tool, by definition. it is a different way of opening a can that i think we can all agree on, just doesn't meet the conditions of opening with your hands only, which is the major point and claim of the video.

  • Micheal Reeve

    Your assumptions that just because you are in an environment in a survival setting that has cement will have can openers easily at hand is wild conjecture. Easy with your anger. Your picture fits your tantrum :P

  • Michael Knight

    you are crazy dude. i think you are the troll. just playing this devils advocate and arguing just to argue. nice try at changing the subject, but alas a tool is a device or implement, esp. one held in the hand, used to carry out a particular function.

    therefore, concrete is being used as a tool. it is being used for the function of grinding down the seal on the top of the can. if you didn't have the concrete you wouldn't be able to open the can.

    sorry you don't have a grasp of the english language, but you do look really nice in your picture.

    screw you guys, that was funny. You laughed at the dick church take it in stride

  • jeffrey jakubowski

    He didn't even do the huge ass can which is what I really wanted to see. BULLSHIT

  • TerryTurtle

    I'm sure we have a can opener that does something similar to how this works - the beauty of it is there are no sharp edges too!

  • Joe Hansbarger

    I just lost it at "Guess vhat? Zee cat's goink to sorvive too."
