Two questions: 1) Why the gloves? 2) How many times have you cut your fingers on the edge of the thingy?

frollard (author)mrmath2008-09-23

pop can edges arent too-too sharp; but I have no idea why the gloves :) perhaps to keep the soda off his fingers?

what is pop? you must be from up north cause down in texas everything is called coke

Several states, as well as most of us in Canuckia, call it 'pop' not sure why. I figure it's the short for 'soda-pop'. Calling everything coke is just...weird. Granted; they do outsell pepsi worldwide 2-1... I still ask for a tissue, not a kleenex.

"pop" is short for popular. Not soda pop.

Oroka (author)frollard2008-10-20

Ahhh, but do you call a snowmobile a skidoo? Us Canuckastanians have to stick together! But yeah, 'pop' up here is a general name for any fizzy soda. As for the Instructable... a small hole will slow down the flattening process more than a wide open hole.

I like how we've resorted to all saying xerox and googling and such

frollard (author)Oroka2008-10-24

Really; I think even the tiniest of pinholes would result in almost the exact same flattening rate. Gas doesn't leave pop/soda/coke/carbonated water quickly, and it takes a large differential in pressure to keep any CO2 dissolved in the liquid. a small leak = no carbonation.

Best website evar.

yes it is wierd, I don't understand why everyone around here does it. people are funny

Oh come on. It's not sealed! I bet when you open it again, it doesn't make a sssst sound, meaning that it's not under pressure, meaning that it's not sealed.

TN777 (author)shooby2012-03-10

But it looks sealed- great for a prank!

while doing this, the wierdest thing happened. MY SODA CAN EXPLODED! no joke! i was doing it, then my can started fizzing rappedly. it was so fast, i called it an explosion. it fell to the ground. once it hit the ground, it exploded again! then the rest spilled on the floor. its a big sticky mess!

As has been said, it will not keep your soda from going flat. Nothing really will, but saran wrap can aid in prolonging the inevitable.

frollard (author)Erik Lindemann2008-09-25

not to poke at semantics, but once the inevitable happens its MOST of the time permanent. Prolonging the permanent would be silly... You mean DELAYING the inevitable. ;-) That said, saran wrap holds pressure in a can about as well as a tissue stops a speeding freight train.

risc999 (author)2008-09-24

Yes, I"d like to see the video where he severs his finger on the lip of the can.

mdmoose29 (author)2008-09-23

TheWelfareWarrior (author)2008-09-23
