10 Experiments In Life Hacking By a Life Hack Doubter

We trolled the Internet for hacks that made us say, "No way that's gonna ever work!" and then we hacked it out. Enjoy our successes and failures, just like our moms and dads!

LIFE HACK 1: OPEN A BEER BOTTLE WITH AN ELECTRIC PLUG
With the right force and dexterity, an electric plug should successfully serve as a bottle opener. However, we'd only seen it done with non-American plugs. We didn't let that hold us down.


Why We Didn't Think This Would Work: Because electric plugs aren't built like sturdy bottle openers. 
Results: One out of five editors was successful in pulling it off. 'Murica wins again! 


LIFE HACK 2: KEEP YOUR BEER FROM SPILLING BY PUTTING A CD ON TOP
Sometimes, you have a beer, you spill it easily, either from shaking, being an idiot, or accidentally bumping into someone. Placing a CD around the top should alleviate the issue.


Why We Didn't Think It Would Work: The circumference of CD holes are almost never the same as the circumference of beer holes (the term "beer hole" can apply to many things, but here we're talking about the opening of the bottle.)
Results: It worked... kind of. After being shook up by Life Hack 1, the beer was ready to spew out. We put the CD on top, and... it did not spew. So, success?
