    I split apples with a twisting motion. Also when you hear the snap of the apple starting to split but it doesn’t split you can just twist it.

    It’s easy.
    Take pointer finger 👉🏻
    Put in middle of of apple next to stem then take your other hand, ball into fist.
    And then hammer your fist on pointer finger and you will see that your finger is digging in middle. When you keep going your will blow through he while apple
    Edit: this works for small and big apples. Just that the big one is harder to get around

    This technique really depends on the apple for me. Saw this trick a long time ago, tried it out with an apple and no matter how I struggled, I could not crack that boy open, even though I really tried hard. Really pissed me off. Some time later, I randomly decided to try it again with another apple and broke it open with hardly any effort at all.

    I've watched a tutorial many years ago that taught me to take my pointer finger, lay it flat on the top of the apple, and hammer my fist into it. I have a vague memory of doing this once in the school cafeteria to share an apple, and my friend looking with disgust at the bruised half, graced by my grimy middle school hands. Your method is much more sanitary lol

  • Bothell Guy
    Bothell Guy Month ago

    the atmospheric pressure in the bottle that is upside down (with the bible away from the opening) creates enough "suction" that the lid is much harder to get off than the one with the air at the top next to the cap. That's why it is always the bottom one. Try sideways and it's anyone's guess! Invite the chaos! Hahaha
