Etsy? I know there's all sorts of custom **** on there. Don't know if there is any request thing though. Also I would buy a companion cube cover for my boxed wine. I don't drink boxed wine. But if I had a companion cube cover I might start.

Huh. I think that's what I was thinking of, but I thought there were folks doing requests. lots of Companion Cube items, but no Wine Companions.

Is it possible that I just invented something useful that hasn't already been patented? Not the wine cube thingy, but the concept of a website that pairs bored, angsty liberal arts majors with people like me who want to pay them to create knitted things to put on our wine?

I know someone who would make that cube-wine-cozy. Granted she's probably in her 30s but still very angsty. she can knit.

Basically, experienced wine tasters didn't distinguish any benefit and actually saw some detriment to using vacu-vin or similar products. One of the main issues being that it doesn't hold its seal. I know you still get that psshhhhhhhhhh sound of pressure when you release ALL OF IT, but over time you'll notice how weak it gets as compared to what a true vacuum would sound like. Now you've just got a rubber cork that lets air diffuse in.

Friends don’t let friends Vacu-Vin John on Wine – a wine blog



I'll try and find some of the other strong articles I read if you want more or maybe consult my professors in the food science department.

What I do after researching is simply replace the original cork for a decent seal and refrigerate (slows oxidation).

If you REALLY want to preserve that bottle, buy some inert gas like nitrogen to flush the bottle's headspace with before popping the original cork back in and refrigerating.

shouldn't prices technically go down in a bad economy?

Have you seen how much money the Fed is printing?! This is the first step in the dramatic race to currency debasement that leads to hyperinflation!

I hope you have your canned goods, gold coins and baby wipes!

This is EXACTLY what happens, which is a completely natural way for purely capitalistic economies to self regulate, and it works 100 PERCENT OF THE TIME!!! - unless of course there's a price fix on the cost of labor...

I always thought that was reasonable.

1) Pull cork
2) Toss cork to labrador who loves to chew on it until wine flavor is gone (only fake "corks" though)
3) Drink wine
4) Have sex

No, it's perfect. You and the lab both have to get liquored up first. Makes sense.

"The most expensive Super Bowl ticket (face value price, not the price paid through a ticket broker) for Super Bowl # 1 in Los Angeles (1967) was $12. The most expensive ticket for Super Bowl # 47 in New Orleans (2013) was $1,250."

Ye gods! We are only a couple of years away from a total currency rejection at this rate.
