If you are out at a bar, or home drinking with some friends, nothing can make you feel better than having a few neat tricks that you can pull out to amaze your friends and make the night go smoother.
Lost Bottle Opener: You have a beer, but you are short a bottle opener, what to do, what to do… Here is what you do, you take out your trusty lighter: Grab the bottle right under the cap and place your lighter in between your finger and the bottle cap, it should be a tight squeeze here. Use your lighter and the proper application of leverage to pry off the cap and enjoy. If you do not have a lighter you are still able to de-cap that bottle and look super-smooth. Simply take it to the nearest counter and place the edge of the cap on the edge of the counter. Now hit the top of the bottle so that the cap gets popped off and you have a nice frosty brew to enjoy.
Need a Light?: If you find yourself outside about to light up a cigarette and you only have a book of matches you can still light up with a flare. Open up the book with one hand and use a finger to peal one match out of the line and fold it over so that the match head is in contact with the sandpaper and still attached to the rest of the matches. With the match book pinched between your fingers and your thumb on the match head, gently act like you are snapping and run the head along the sandpaper until it lights.
Napkin Flower: So there is a cute girl sitting down the bar and you want to impress her with a nice flower, easy. Take your bar napkin and unfold it all the way and fold one side over so about an inch, this is now your top end. Take a bottom corner and fold it across the napkin so the tip is about half way up the opposing side. Grip the top of the napkin an inch and a half under the fold (so that there is ½ inch under the folded section) and begin tightly rolling the napkin to produce the stem. On your way down, take the corner that is half way up the napkin and leave it out of the roll to form a leaf. Finish tightly rolling the napkin and present it to your new friend down the bar.
Magic Ash: If you are having a smoke and want to impress a friend, try this trick: magically “burning” their hand without any pain or even coming near a cigarette. Trace your subject’s hand on a sheet of paper and burn a small section on its palm. As your friend is watching you burn their fake hand secretly transfer some ash onto your finger. Without your friend seeing the ash on your fingertip take their hands and rub some ash onto their palm. Now you can take your hand away and watch tell the friend to look at their palm. this trick could take a few tries to get down but after a practice run or two you should be impressing everybody you try it on.
