Pop this Bubble
Ever get frustrated trying to open a product you just bought? The other day I purchased a 4 port USB hub for my computer. It was packaged in some heavy duty, military grade bubble plastic. You know what I'm talking about, that thick, tightly sealed plexiglass material that lets you see what you cannot touch. Anyway, after a few desperate minutes of trying to rip it open, banging it on the ground, and slashing at it with a steak knife I decided to find some industrial cutting tools to slice the thing apart. After searching for awhile I found a brand new pair of scissors, unfortunately they were still in their plastic bubble wrap packaging. Dang it!
That's when it hit me--as soon as I get the broken parts of my USB hub out of this packaging, I'm going to keep a piece of this plastic and use it to cut open future packaging. Heck, the stuff is sharp enough to slice tomatoes.
