I was looking at Crooked Brains
the other day and came across this video
about how to open a bottle of wine without using a corkscrew. It involves a nail, a screwdriver and a hammer. It looks rather dangerous to me, so I don't think I will be trying it, but for more the more adventurous people out there, you might want to check it out. There is also a good video on how to get red wine stains out of clothing, very useful.
