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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
