Today, at work, I bought a soda can from the vending machine. When I wanted to open the can, the push-pull tab broke off and I was unable to open the can. As a result, I decided that I will spend some company paid time to search for the answer to this question: “How to manually open (without any help of devices, such as a can opener) a soda can with a broken push-pull tab?”
I was pretty certain that I will find the answer, but was surprised that I couldn’t even get close to finding it. So I’m posting it as a challenge. If you find the answer to this very troubling question, post it in the comments section.
Oh, and if you’re interested, while looking for the answer to my question, I found an answer to another question: “Why do people tap on soda cans before opening them?”
