Getting corked without a screw (or with one)
I love the Interwebs, and despite obtrusive and often ridiculous ads (plugging Mariah Carey on a Radiohead video?!?), YouTube is one of the reasons why.
Aside from the fun factor and the musical treasures (like this amazing, obscure piece by Bach), there’s a lot of practical material out there. Such as what to do when you find yourselves without a corkscrew.
I’m not sure if I prefer the “shoe method” or the “screw method.” Probably the latter, if only to keep the walls clean. But both necessity-is-the-mother approaches seem to work.
And if you somehow find yourself wanting or needing to extract a cork from inside an empty bottle? Just try this.
