so good

Letting the neck protrude out the top of your fist like that can make this trick a lot more painful than it needs to be-especially if someone wants to see it again. To save yourself some pain, move your fist up higher on the bottle so that the rim can barely be seen. This lets the flesh of your non-striking hand take a little of the impact, and hurts a lot less. Of course, if you've already had 8 or ten beers, don't worry about it. It won't hurt anyway.
