I guess you are guaranteed that you'll get the bottle open one way or another by repeatedly smashing it against a wall.

Okay, exactly what happened there? I thought the cork would be knocked inside the bottle. How did hitting it on the wall push it out?

It has something to do with the force of the hit and the pressure being created inside.

my old science teacher showed our skill this but he used it against a tree, guess it was used to cushion the hit instead of those clown shoes.

I did try this inside the house using a towel to cushin the hit but it didn't work. From the looks of it I should have hit harder :)

3 simple explanation. Get an empty bottle and hold it sideways.Make a small ball of paper and fit it in the opening. Now try to blow the paper into the bottle. You can't! The paper will always pop out as the air pressure creating by blowing into the bottle causes the paper to pop out, so doing this with the wine is the same thing :)

i saw a guy in London open a wine bottle without an opener once, he just pushed the cork into the bottle with his finger.

that same guy once showed me how to open a beer bottle with his teeth, but he also went on explaining how he saw a guy scrape his gums off doing that.

lol my uncle showed me something similar, basicly you need to create a wave of pressure (hitting the bottom) the wave then travels up the wine inside the bottle and pushes on the cork.can do similar with an opend bottle. with an opend glass bottle, fill it so theres about 5mil gap from the top and hit it hard with the palm of ur hand. it will smash the botom of thebottle off

i dunno if they know the guy that well, the audio isn't great, but they are saying at 0:24 "come on and prove to us your an alcoholic"
#14 i think the that the guy is both. I like his CAN DO attitude about getting at his wine :)
No bottle opener? NP, any building corners handy?
