Crack open a beer with only your forearm

Over the past year we have amassed quite a plethora of beer opening methods. Everything from a dollar bill to a carabiner can be finagled into a makeshift opener.

Chowhound's Daniel Duane is the first to confront the twist-off challenge. Though it's designed for easy manual opening, the twist-off is hell on your hand.

Daniel adeptly cracks open this cold one with the quickest tool available: his forearm.
