How To Open Coconuts Without Any Tools

You never know when you might find yourself stranded on a desert island, by choice or otherwise, and as every castaway movie has taught us there are coconuts a-plenty on desert isles.

Coconuts can be eaten, worn as a bikini and used to simulate the sound of horses galloping, but first the husk must be removed before the coconut can be cracked open, which is really hard to do without tools.

Enter "The King of Random" Grant Thompson with a time tested method for de-husking coconuts while using as little energy as possible- by dropping a giant rock on it.

Once you're done dropping rocks on husked coconuts and dropping unhusked coconuts on sharp rocks you can use the fibers to make rope, which is another handy thing to have when you're a castaway.

My Nana lived in Scotland in Bowmore, Islay. She said that coconuts would occasionally wash up on the shore there. Said that some of the Hebrides islands even had palm trees on them due to a warm current that came up around the islands. My grandfather who hailed from Glasgow swore the Loch Ness Monster was real. Me? I swear by whisky. And now I am cutting myself off. Say goodnight, Sandy.
