(Minor) Blast From the Past

On the plane to Atlanta for the fencing nationals today, the Pepsi we were served was Japanese — not only was all the text in Japanese, but the can even had a ring tab, one of those little detachable tabs that people used to make chains and even clothing of before they were discontinued because of the horrific dangers they posed when littered here and there where innocents could cut themselves on those sharp edges.

I'd completely forgotten cans used to open that way here.
