Opening at the top is good, but sometime the rest of the container gets in the way whilst pouring. Pouring it with the container on its side has a similar advantage (though possibly less pronounced) and it's the way I always pour fuel from jerry cans.

Jeff, it's amazing how we do some things the same way


Great suggestion.

Yes, that makes it even better, elevating your hack to near-Olympian heights.

Very nicely done.

A chip off the old Mango block, to be sure.

You can get a very precise pour by putting the opening of the jug at the TOP, rather than at the BOTTOM. That way the liquid will not "glug" out of the jug, or "burp" out and spill all over. This works with all offset spouts.

This method is show in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82ivVwHwnb8
and this one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6JpU_I078M

Try it! It really works!

The best part is that at the time me and my girlfriends didn't have anything to cut the water bottle with so I used lighter to melt the plastic.
