At your next Pic-a-Nic

Zjabs rarely drinks pop (or soda, or soda-pop- or carbonated flavored sugar water if you prefer). But from time to time, he gets a cup of it.

And he's learned a great trick that for some reason really bothers people.

Try it at your next gathering and let me know if it drives people crazy or not-

many people buy 2-liter bottles (as they are metric-wackos, trying to undermine America with European values and culture- things like armpit and leg hair on women, bicycle lanes, murses and roundabouts. And yes Nick, I'm looking directly at you)

Find a bottle that's about half full. Take the top off, and then collapse the bottle on itself so it's concave (or is it convex? Why oh why couldn't I be a scientist like Tom Dey- I bet he even knows the difference between stalagmite and stalactite.)

And then put it back on the table. Inevitably someone will see it and open the top and try to make the bottle its normal shape. I'm not sure why, but for some reason a collapsed bottle drives people crazy. Try it.
