Traveling around San Francisco with my friend Liz, we decided to get a California specialty, Two-buck Chuck (really cheap wine) from Trader Joes. Being a really cheap wine, I thought it would be a “twist-off”. However, when we got back to the hotel room (to read our feeds, and catch on up Social News <cough-geek-cough>) we discovered that this gross-cheap-wine has corks!
I instantly remembered this happening to me before, and giving up. Being that my only option would be to go downstairs from the hotel and maybe ask a seedy bar if they could help out, I thought … “Duh! There must be a way to open this bottle without a corkscrew”.
I instantly did a Google search, and thought about the SERPS. This was an interesting search I was doing, and I would’ve changed the wording around but I wanted this specific phrase. I wanted to go with LifeHack because I have trusted their content in the past, at the #4 position. And strangely there was a Metacafe (not a Youtube) video. But the most helpful link was the WikiHow results. Having never used Wikihow, I was skeptical as usual but this site gave me 6 different ways to open my wine bottle. The page was simple, the content I was looking for and 6 Ads by Google. Just how I like it 🙂 Might be a community I will be joining in the near future.
Now I am happy drinking my wine!
However, The only thing WikiHow didn’t mention is how much the process of opening the wine bottle without a corkscrew would hurt my friend’s poor finger.
