I was showing my friends the zippo trick called the twilight zone posted by Fungus Amungus, but they didnt look so impressed as I hoped. I searched the internet finally finding this one. BUT the instructions blowed. I wanted this to be as easy as possible. Here is what I got. Enjoy.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: How to and Tips
The video is the how to, and the pictures tell how it should be. I am sorry about the video, it is blurry.
PRACTICE IT BEFORE YOU COMMENT, you'll eventually get it.
HOW TO DO IT
Put your middle finger and your pointer finger on the top, and your thumb on the bottom. Have the hinge on your left. Now in one quick motion squeeze with your fingers, top two fingers slide down, and your thumb slides up. The zippo magically opens.
At the top of the lighter, keeping your two fingers near the edge of it makes it somewhat easier.
Step 2: Impress Your Friends
Practice and you will perfect it. Do the squeeze and then finish it off with the twilight zone. That will be enough for someone to say "How the hell did you do that". Comments are welcome but be nice.
