How’s this for openers... bottle openers that is: Did you know, William Painter, an American mechanical engineer, invented the bottle opener and bottle cap in 1894? His bottle top openers and bottle cap were so successful they built a Fortune 500 company. He went from bottle openers to big business. While bottle openers transformed the mechanical engineer's life, we must ask ourselves where we would be without the bottle cap and bottle opener. Would we be only using cans like in the dark ages? And imagine where we’d be if the bottle opener hadn’t been invented along with the bottle cap. As much as your drunk friend may insist, their teeth were not designed to be bottle openers.
