I looooooove me some pistachios. But, I hate that there are always a few of those suckers in every ($10-$12...) bag that I can't get out of their little shells. I know I could probably buy them already shelled, but that ruins the fun. Is there some technique to this other than just prying the shells apart with my nails?

Also, did you know that there are an assortment of exciting pistachio gifs? Here are a couple of my favs!
