Froze a car door shut with a beer canonce
I took a can filled it with water and poked a hole it, sat it on top of the car so that it was leaking down the door jamb (it was a very cold night). Not only did it freeze the door shut but the Dick head that owned the car claimed that it bent the door

Sorry guys, you're all wrong.
Except maybe the starter cover. Gotta love that!


There are 2 main uses for an empty "beer" can.

#1 = Shim. They are very thin (.0035" typically), and don't rust.
#2 = Fill it with water and shoot it. More fun than enough.

Heck on college on a -20 night we went over to a rival frats parking lot (They started it) after they all passed out and set up a sprinkler. Bout 2 hours later, several cars had well over an inch of ice on them. Remove sprinkler, drain hose, stow in basement again. Hard part was getting the last 20 feet of ice encrusted hose out of the parking lot without making noise., and getting it rolled up quickly and stowed back in the basement.

Still think beer container is the best though.

Special BMW repair kit: it started out as a beer can but became part of my valve cover after I crashed on greasy, rainy street in Winnipeg. I think that was in 1972. The valve cover later became an ashtray, and now serves to hold small parts when I work on my bikes.

i cant tell what your rifle is
have you ever frozen the can of water and layed it on its side so you are shoting long ways through the can and shot it with something like a 30.06

Way back in the 70's, met a guy on a beach around Caracas.He was riding a SOHC Honda 750F, same bike I had in Canada. He showed me how to stick a joint inside a beer can and smoke that inconspicuously on the beach. But them were the old pull tabs, probably worked better with them.

Beach sure was littered with pull tabs but there was plenty else to ogle there just had to watch your steps.
