Jan 19th 2010 8:48PM I'm pretty sure that part about the punt is flat wrong. The punt doesn't "help redistribute the pressure to keep the bottle from exploding." It is, rather, designed to focus the inevitable explosions in a particular direction. For much of its aging -- prior to riddling -- champagne is stored stacked bottle to bottle by the thousands. If a bottle explodes, the chain reaction can take down thousands of bottles. But if the explosion just shoots out the bottom, the most damage it does is to the few bottles that are stacked directly in the path of the explosion. So the punt is actually designed to be weaker than the rest of the bottle.

Jan 8th 2010 7:39PM And what's the point of having a cumbersome two step commenting process if you're going to get spam posts anyway?
Jan 8th 2010 7:37PM One would think that in 2010, a free and fearless nature could be expressed by methods other than a stiffly-held cigarette.
Dec 16th 2009 5:07PM That looks really nice. Too bad Sugar Land is a dump (even by Houston standards).
Dec 7th 2009 6:46PM Diedre, I think you're glossing over the most important part of this story, which is that someone -- anyone -- is voluntarily moving from Manhattan Beach to Tarzana. Especially someone who made more than $14mil last year just in his NBA salary (not including his endorsements), and is scheduled to make at least $11mil this year.
Tarzana is not where one chooses to live, it is where one has to live when one's options have been stripped.
That said, I kinda like the fact that a guy who's made $10mil or more a year since 2002 was living in a $2.4mil place.
Dec 4th 2009 7:08PM Wow --- with one or two execeptions (nice sandals) wearing any of that stuff would make you look like a total tool.
Nov 25th 2009 5:22PM All those pretty pictures nicely obscure the fact that the house sits just a few yards from the 101 freeway. Between the sound of the traffic and the sound of the surf, I doubt this is a very relaxing hideaway.
Sep 30th 2009 7:20PM Is it just me, or are most of these no excuse for a server not coming around to the table if only just to say why they're delayed?
