Is Otiwast an observation (seeing something, hearing something, etc.)? The coincidence of observing multiple things together? Or is it a mental realization? or a combination of an observation of one thing, and a realization about another?

Is it relevant in what location a person is when he experiences Otiwast?

Eli

Is Otiwast something that most people will experience at least once in life? Hard to say most people but a lot will more than once? Those that experience it will most likely experience it on more than one occasion Is it more common to experience Otiwast at certain stages in a person's life? Yesish

Biograd

Is Otiwast an observation (seeing something, hearing something, etc.)? No The coincidence of observing multiple things together? No Or is it a mental realization? No or a combination of an observation of one thing, and a realization about another? So no to this

Is it relevant in what location a person is when he experiences Otiwast? No it can happen anywhere although more likely in certain places

Rbruma

Do you experience it willingly? No Or rather it is just happening (like an earthquake or a heart attack)? Well it happens but you don't mean it to but it's not like the examples you chosen in that it takes a certain action on your part to experience Otiwast

In hindsight lets assume babies can't experience this , while it's technically possible it's very very unlikely

If you said nothing could somebody else tell that you have experienced Otiwast?
Does it affect your body anywhere? Anything like goosebumps?
Would you wish it on your worst enemy?
Does it affect your mental capacities?
Like forgetting something obvious?
Is it a duh moment?
You said you hadn't experienced it 'in a while'. Were the circumstances the same as before?
Can you bring it on yourself?

Leglessness? Saying stupid things you wouldn't normally say? You didn't put the lampshade on your head did you?? Desire to dance which you don't normally do? Quick samba in the pantry? Irish jig? Feeling 'tired and emotional'?

Quick samba in the pantry? Irish jig? Feeling 'tired and emotional'? Hee Hee all good guesses but all nos I'm afraid. Talking of lampshades on heads I once read of a philosophy that you should never trust a person who when left on their own in a room with a tea cosy doesn't try it on as a hat

I, being a rare drinker these days, got egged on by my boss to do the old tequila slammer thing at the staff Christmas party (just six of us at a restaurant) - THREE times. On top of the wine drunk with the meal. My first three ever. I wobbled a bit on the way out, but got home with decorum and in one piece. I think they were quite impressed.

Would it help us to know exactly what drink you had? And the quantity thereof?

Would it help us to know exactly what drink you had? And the quantity thereof? The exact drink is not really relevant and nor is the act of drinking it. You need to establish what type of experience Otiwast is

Would this only happen with small beer/cider/whatever bottles? Or would it also happen with wine bottles? Does it only happen to the one planning to drink it? Or could it happen to the bartender?

I should ascertain that by ordinary bottle cap you meant the one that a barman has to pop off with a bottle opener

Spilling the drink all over you when popping the cap off? No Having the drink spray all over the place? No Having the cap fly off into who-knows-where? No Bending the cap, but not actually removing it? And No

Otiwast can only happen with the serrated edged bottle cap that requires a bottle opener to open

Does it involve looking around for the bottle opener? using something else instead? (if so: a spoon? a knife? a nut cracker? a screw driver? the table edge?)

Speaking of nifty bottle openers, my mother gave me a funky one for Christmas. It's a statue of a mariachi man holding a guitar - the guitar is removable and is the bottle opener.

Does it involve looking around for the bottle opener? Bottle openers are not involved using something else instead? Yes see my answer to Lynne on 01/02 at 11.06 (if so: a spoon? a knife? a nut cracker? a screw driver? the table edge?) But nothing like this

trying to open the bottle with your hand? Yes twisting the top off? yes pulling it off? NOt really

Almost there now, ask yourself what type of experience is Otiwast

You missed my 5:20 post - reproducing it here: Sorry

Using your teeth? No but I used to do this at parties

Cutting your hand while trying to remove the cap? well not as bad as cutting your hand it's just experiencing pain. Now what have beer manufacturers done in recent years to beer bottles that might cause one to hurt one's hand

Replacing the caps which used to be opened with a opener with similar looking ones that open by twisting? God knows I hate them -- a lighter is enough to open any "traditional" cap :-)

Did you try to open a traditional one by twisting?

Did you try to open a traditional one by twisting? Exactly

**************Spoiler*******************

Now I know they were trying to make our lives easier but beer producers have made opening a bottle a bit like Russian Roulette. Some have kept the traditional cap that needs an opener while some have brought in the twist off. However unless you inspect the top really closely looking for those tell tale little arrows then it's virtually impossible to tell if it's a screw off or a opener job. Twisting one that needs an opener can be quite painful and often leaves a serrated red mark on the palm of your hand. If you've done this like I have on many occasions then you have experienced the pain that is.....


Ouch Thought It Was A Screw Top.

Well done Rbruma and thanks to all who played

Nice puzzle Peter, and I may confess I experienced Otiwast. With a hurt hand and saying things that are not appropriate to reproduce neither on paper, nor on this forum :-)

Best. Acronym. Ever.

I've only experienced Otiwast with medicine bottles - I never seem to remember which ones are which.

I've gotten into the habit of using a bottle opener on all of them, even twist-offs. I get weird looks sometimes, but there's no chance of Otiwast.

Oh goodness, excellent word. We needed a neologism for that. I've had cuts on my hand for days from otiwast. Opens you up to some unwelcome questions from co-workers.

(first rule of otiwast--do not talk about otiwast.)
