The Penny, the Cork, and the Bottle


Take a penny, an empty wine bottle, and a cork.  Put the penny in the wine bottle and cork the bottle.  Now remove the penny without pulling out the cork and without breaking the cork or bottle.






Solution: Like Rob said in the comments, push the cork IN, then shake the penny out.

  1. Push the cork in, shake till the penny comes out?

  2. How about heating the bottle so the expanding air pushes the cork out?
