Fear not, for most newfangled water bottles have a little seal that breaks on a dull spike on the water cooler, so the days of making a mess of yourself are nearly over.

Of course, try all I could, I still was unable to penetrate that seal without splashing water all over the place. Apparently, you need the combined strength of superman and the downward velocity of a concorde in freefall to successfully break that seal. This can lead to creative forms of bottle dropping, and can also lead to very messy offices.

ximenez: I'm sure if Budweiser took over the water cooler, nobody would complain. Especially at work, and around happy hour.
