Opening a brand new DVD movie *facepalm*?

Ok, I don't know how long ive struggled to open my 150-200 movies on DVDs. You know the plastic wrapping around the case? Yeah, that PITA thing, where you try and scratch off a corner where it's folded, over, and over, and over, and over again? I bet it's added up to hours wasted. Anyway, I just realized that there is a slit on the side of the case where you open the dvd case.

I don't know if this is a new "feature" or what, but it's genius!

I grab the sharpest thing within my arm's reach (lazy, I know. :rolleyes), and I cut away right at the deep part along the side.
Now those stickers. GOD HELP ME if I could ever get one of those on the first try...

Now, I could be wrong on this, but isn't it a good thing that we didn't read that part?
