Still think my favorite way is to knock the top off using a sword. Think it only works with sparkling wines, tho.

2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

Sure Lama… if you like your wine shaken, not stirred.

It was more like a Rube Goldberg way to open a bottle than Steampunk.

Eh.. Rube Golberg would have included a mouse, a boot on the end of a stick, and a love-sick sailor.

While archaic… it is technically still true.

Via wiki: In 1931 the Merriam-Webster dictionary adopted the word “Rube Goldberg” as an adjective defined as accomplishing something simple through complex means.

Sorry… cultural differences here…

Via wiki: Predating Goldberg, the corresponding term in the U.K. was, and still is, “Heath Robinson”, after the English illustrator with an equal devotion to odd machinery (although Heath Robinson’s creations did not have the same emphasis on the sequential or chain reaction element).
