First world solutions

One of my great delights is hearing people voicing their first world problems – “Oh, with the economy being down and all, we had to go to Singapore for our holiday again – twice in the one year.” “The milk for my breakfast cereal is the wrong temperature.” “I’ve got RSI in my finger from making Lego.”

It’s evil, I know, but I find it funny.

So much for me working on being a bigger, better, nicer person.

And then, finally, I’ve spotted a first world solution.

A spoon in the neck of a Lindaur (a New Zealand wine made in the style of Champagne) that’s had about a third consumed.

It’s unclear to me how the gas in the wine will be unable to escape past the spoon. The spoon occupies perhaps 10% of the neck of the bottle. The bacteria and fungi normally resident in a refrigerator are also prevented from entering the otherwise open bottle by the teaspoon.

So. Two thirds of a bottle of “champagne” is not left to go flat (or infected) in the refrigerator. No. It’s got ‘teaspoon’.

Now that’s a real superhero power.
