Not even a Canadian penny's worth of usable silicone

The old tube of silicone felt hard and barely anything squeezed out, but since all I needed was just a few dabs of silicone, I decided to peel off the metal skin of the tube, it's thin metal, and probe for any usable pockets of gel to avoid buying a brand new tube of silicone. None.

I tried to get the rattly thing out of a dead can of spray paint once (shortly after I got a slingshot.)

It was VERY hard to make a hole big enough to let the little marble out. I still have the scar on my index finger where the can cut me. I've never bled for so long and still remained conscious.

In other words, your picture really scared me.

blournalist- did that too with a pull-top can. But with the tube, the metal is sorta flexible and thin skin I guess so squeeze-able.
