    Opening Bottles like that is standard in Germany.
    Paper is considered advanced tho, mostly because people don't think about it.

    I often see videos about people learning to open bottles in different ways. With me beeing form germany and drinking beer since i was 16 I am surprised if a person i meet can not open a bottle of beer with another one or something similar. It just goes to show how you take different things for granted or see them as normal even tho they are realy only a thing in your social bubble, even with simple things like opening a bottlecap.

    pushing down on the bottle cap you are using as leverage on your finger to open another is preventing the upper one from opening .

  • Eric Cedrick Slingby

    The reason the smaller apples are harder to split is because of this thing called "breaking strength"
    It was explained to me using rope as the example.
    If you take a rope, tie end of it to the yoke around a cow's neck, and have the other end around something heavy that you want the cow to pull, you end up with the rope being both pulled on and held in place. Since a shorter rope is proportionately thicker, it's far less likely to break. But, the same thing is going on with the apples.
    I think the more scientific term is tensile strength, dunno.

    Put the middle part of your two thumbs where it bends over the dip in the apple where the stalk is and pull apart. Your hands should kinds look like how you have your hands while playing volleyball but with an apple between them. Its actually essy with all sized apples

    The first you could do it because of the shape, what i do to split an apple is put my middle finger of each hand on the uper part (like on the hole) and then twisted. Done! It works with every apple, some with more effort but it works
