From time to time, such as recently after losing everything and trying to decide what things I needed to continue to live independently for as long as possible.  But, the only issue I forsee is the day that I'm no longer able to grip the jar lid I'm trying to open...which I figure anything like a large pipe wrench would work...as for getting a new jar open.

 

The method I learned as a boy scout has always worked for me....hit the side of the jar lid with the backside of a knife....which loosens or breaks the seal was preventing me from turning the lid.

 

My parents had claimed the answer involved hot water and dissimilar material expansion rates....etc.  Which makes sense I also have an Engineering degree, but often didn't work for me....wet jars were even harder to open, but much easier to drop....especially since I have Ataxia.
