How to open a case of water

I brought a case of water home today, and before putting it away, she showed me a trick that she learned by watching TikTok. (video embed below) Just take a knife and cut the case in half by cutting the top and two sides. Then lift up from the bottom. Boom! The bottles stay in the plastic, and you can simply pull the bottles out. Mind. Blown.

All cleaned up and ready to go.

All past blog posts have been deleted. My user account is now Jim and not my full name. The blog posts are now federated to a clean timeline. I needed to do these things to move in the direction I wanted to go here. Where am I trying to go?

I’ve tried several other things like Known and, but I find quirks that I’m not happy with and keep going back to WordPress. WordPress isn’t perfect for what I want to use it for, but I hope I can get it close enough. If you want to see what I am up to, stick around, follow the RSS feed, or follow the blog on the fediverse at I will probably never post anything groundbreaking or profound. It will likely be the most mundane content you’ve ever seen, but it’s mine in my own space.
