The guys at FullMag—previously RatedRR—managed to perfectly open a bottle of cheap champagne using a 50 Cal tactical rifle. Sadly, in the process they also managed to shatter a bottle of perfectly delicious 2006 Cristal Champagne—which makes me sad. But whatever, happy holidays!
A (false) legend says that the first champagne glass was molded using the left breast of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France till her head rolled.

Take a look around you—because you will never forget where you were the day you heard about the Champagne Massacre of '13. Yesterday, Wednesday September 18 at around 2:30 pm, a truck filled to the brim with bubbly fell over, split open, and got I-395 in Connecticut absolutely wasted.
If you haven't seen a million iPhone 5S housing pics of varying believability by now, you're either doing something very wrong, or very right.
