This New Year's Eve, don't shoot your eye out with a champagne cork12/31/2012
Those American Academy of Ophthalmology guys are really sick of getting called away from their New Year's Eve celebrations because someone caught a cork in the eye. They're tired of coming back on Jan. 1 to a waiting room that looks like a pirate ship's deck. "Improper cork-removal techniques cause serious, potentially blinding eye injuries each year," the Academy wearily announced. Champagne bottles contain high pressure that can launch a cork at 50 mph. So remember: Don’t shake the champagne, ditch the corkscrew, point the bottle away from people, and cover the entire top with a towel while removing the cork. Then you won't have to ring in the new year with your eye doctor. [Source]
