Even machines have trouble opening wine bottles with corks

How much trouble can opening a bottle with a cork be? Just watch

Need any more convincing that corks are trouble? Than check out this YouTube video from F-Jokes, in which a machine that looks like a cross between William F. Gibson steampunk and Rube Goldberg uncorks a bottle, and then, to quote guy running the demonstration, “Keep your fingers crossed that it’s going to pour us a glass of wine.”

None of this, of course, would be necessary if the wine had a screwcap.
