    How to remove a cork without a corkscrew

    Just what we all need to know. About as far off-topic as we could get on a photography forum, but I thought this was clever and worth sharing

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    Great, I have just found the coolest trick in the world only to find that I can't afford to drink wine that is still sold with a cork

    Seriously…. thanks for sharing that is cool!!!

    Has anyone noticed that when people open a corked bottle, the cork stays out of the bottle.
    With the twist top caps, people seem to put the cap back on the bottle after the wine is opened?

    Yeah me too Danny, by the time I bought the wine I found that I didn't have enough money to buy the corkscrew. Ah well, back to Chateau Cardborde.

    Mark, one must realise that us cultured people replace the lid on the bottle to keep the blowies out of it at the barby ----

    I was looking forward to using some U-bute cool, clean, safe and efficient technique to open the next bottle in my father's collection.
    Somehow tho I have a feeling that the technique doesn't lend itself well to bottles of '73 Grange and '81 Coonawarra cab savs and the like.


    .. I think we'll just stick to tried and tested method of filtering out the small cork fragments during decanting!

    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    Too bad if you're a Barefoot Boy.
    There'll be no wine for you.

    However, the roo's got the right idea. You can drink beer instead.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    We BBQ the flies and put them in the salad.
    Most learn about this cultured thing.
