I couldnt believe it either until I tried it. Drop a dime in, spin it around rapidly for a minute. Supposedly this helps the dime "cut" the glass, making it easier to knock the hole in it. When you slam it against your thigh, if you do it wrong, the bottom breaks off. If you do it right, you get a perfect, cleanly cut hole - thumb sized, and perfect for capping off.
The irony is that my friends and I never drank cans. We said it was the redneck/American way to drink beer. I guess shotgunning with a bottle was the classier/Canadian way.
