If you’re ever stranded in a boat without a can opener, or if you’re just looking for a good hand work out, here’s a practical demonstration of how to go about tearing a can open to get to its nourishing contents. Unless you speak Russian, you’re probably not going to get much out of the explanation from the man in this video, but I’m going to assume that he is suggesting that you either do this with foods that won’t spill all over the place, or that you do this over a container of some kind, and maybe put on some gloves too.
