How to Open F*#@ing Clamshell Packaging

This tip from Real Simple magazine is pure brilliance.

The worst part of Christmas -- or any holiday, really -- is opening the packaging. We often get cut or pinched, and swearing is nearly always involved. But this tip we saw in Real Simple magazine may just change all that.

And we quote: "Grab a standard rotary can opener. (Make sure it's sharp.) Flip the package over so you're looking at the back, clamp the can opener on the top-right edge of the package, then cut all the way around. Voila!"

Thank you, Real Simple. You are a lifesaver!

It is Christmas mornng here in the states, primary California far Northern part for me, I came upon the site and thought how intresting it would be to read something from the BBC. It was the one with the red headed child(of which I thought to be very pretty) but as I looked around the site more I was a little surprised as to the thought of the language allowed on this site mainly for women. In my thoughts it seemed to me that more interlectual wording would bring in more interest to this site for women, now I am not stupid, in fact beng tested many times foud myself an honor student in spelling, reading and writing (with the exception of my old key board) :)Anyway just my thoughts on the manner of useless words in a forum that young ladies 10 years maybe younger would be looking into and find such an example from their elders who should be mentoring by now using such words or suggestive ones even in part. Thank you for allowing me my comment. Dorothy

May i make a word of advice? I do think youve had sth good over here. But what if you also included a few references towards a website that supports what you’re saying? Or simply you may offer us something to check out, something would link up what youre mentioning, sth concrete?
