Nostalgia from a Beer Can?

OMG, I hadn't seen a pull-tab can in decades - in fact I don't think I was ever legal at the same time as pull-tab beers in the U.S. 

I remember my cousins making hatbands out of the tabs, which I thought was pretty darn cool (hey, I was in Texas and I was nine).

On the other hand I still remember convenience stores being just littered with the damn things, dozens deep in some areas.

Like a rotary phone, most American kids would probably be baffled to see one of these.  I did a double-take myself when the tab didn't bend down into the can.

Maybe next I can find a beer here that still requires a church key to open?
