I have never seen one of these cans with sharp edges. They're made for safety. There was a whole ad campaign about it in the early 90s

Ya no shit they are like safety rounded and no sharp edge at all. Unless it was cut from the wrapper.

48 & 85 - they're made to be opened by hand, you morons. why would they design them to be opened by beating them on your counter? you can also open them. by throwing them off the roof but that's not how they were made...

My dad beats the can on the counter … because he has one hand. Most people with 2 hands squeeze it til it pops open. How OP wound up with his hand cut open is beyond me. He sounds like the kinda guy that goes these instructions were confusing & I ended up with my dick in the toaster!

I open them by throwing them on the counter, but that's because I hate sudden loud noises. If I throw it, the (sudden) pop of the can and the (planned) noise of it hitting the counter will be so close together that it doesn't bother me.

Everyone is scared of the pop. That's what makes them so fun! No need to take it to the highest level OP! Just take a chill pill and don't buy biscuits.

I decided to do some "research" because I was curious about your fear of butterflies. Its called lepidopterophobia. You're not the only one. Try ihatebutterflies.com

I have globophobia, the irrational fear of balloons, mostly balloons popping. Usually people who suffer from globophobia have experienced some sort of trauma involving balloons. I, however, cannot think of any such experience in my life. I have absolutely no idea why I have such a problem with balloons. But that's why they call it an irrational fear.

I have this fear of people standing on my left side ..... I'm not sure if it's a fear but I've broke down and cried whenever people stand there .....

They are pretty from afar but have you ever seen a close up of their body? You'll realize they are not so pretty after all but rather scary!!

Kylie- People just see things differently. Other than their radiant wings, I think butterflies are a bit ugly.

I'm afraid of rats and clowns. Ronald McDonald and that It clown are the scariest fucking things in the world. I'm more afraid of rats than that though.

I have a fear of caterpillars. I hate bugs, but caterpillars are the worst. Thing is, I used to idolize butterflies a lot, but one day as a child, outside my church there was an infestation of caterpillars. So much so, that the women and children were told to stay inside while the men dealt with them. Because they were caterpillars and I was obsessed with the idea of metamorphism at that point, I turned hysterical when the decision was made to destroy all of them with a fire hose. I was about

I had a friend who was very afraid of butterflies up until fifth grade when he overcame the fear and wrote a report on them.

Butterflies are freaking disgusting! I'm perfectly fine with looking at them and seeing pictures, but have one come near me or, God forbid, try to land on me and you will see one very freaked out white girl.

I have an irrational fear of whales. They have life size whale statues on the roof of the Brisbane Museum and I used to freak out every time we went there. And yes, Free Willy does freak me out too. They don't call them killer whales because they're friendly XD

It's not an uncommon phobia. I'm terrified of moths and, to a lesser extent, butterflies. A phobia doesn't have to make sense; that's why it's an irrational fear.

This thread has made me happy! I have a lot of fears (far less now than I used to) my main one is the sea. It's mainly the idea of things in the sea, whales for example, they are huge (obviously) and have tonnes of room. They are not cramped in there! Sharks make me physically throw up on sight of one. Balloons terrify me, the popping of them, had one burst in my eye when I was young. Butterflies and moths scare the crap out of me, it's the fluttering. Bleecgh. There are many more, but I feel th

72-I always thought I was the only one who was afraid of caterpillars...I don't feel like a weirdo any more

96, is that, by any chance, a reference to A Series of Unfortunate Events? If not, I apologize for probably confusing you. I don't think that book series is very well known. -_-'

Why were your hands anywhere near the lid ? You're supposed to unwrap a little of the label (I usually unwrap about half) and then grab the middle of the tube and squeeze it until it pops open.

Reply

Hey, it's scary when you're unwrapping the label and the can pops open, it always makes me jump!
