Just opened a bottle of wine. Most of the wine bottles these days are now screw tops. However this one had a cork.
I then thought, will the corkscrew be extinct in 10 years time.

Any other things that you use regularly that probably won't be around in 10 years time. I don't mean the wife or husband :-)

In the interests of cultural history being documented, it must be asked if you applied the "Red Neck Test for Good Wine" and counted the threads on the cap.

I'm told that three turns or more is a sure indication of "superior wine." (One shouldn't ask "superior to WHAT.")

I doubt, however, that the cork will disappear until the last of the yuppies is gone, as it permits a higher price (usually) based on "elitism" or some such thing that can be advertised profitably.

If by a cork you mean a stopper made of cork, then corks have all but disappeared already. Real cork, I have read, harbors a mold that used to ruin a couple of percent of all the wine that was bottled. That is a pretty heavy tax to pay for tradition. All the wine I have bought recently is stoppered with some kind of plastic. I would be delighted if it moved on to screw caps, but so far that is a sign of quality not even up to my very modest taste.

Paper bank checks are disappearing pretty fast. I gather they are already very rare in Europe.

A couple of kluges that ought to disappear but are not likely to do so in 10 yr are the reciprocating engine and the lead-acid battery.

I wonder about the Internet. So far it has been defended successfully against malice & stupidity, but there is no guarantee that some fatal flaw won't turn up.

UP AROUND THE BEND Lyrics
Artist(Band):Creedence Clearwater Revival

There's a place up ahead and I'm goin' just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you're goin', leave the sinkin' ship behind.

CHORUS:
Come on the risin' wind, we're goin' up around the bend.

Ooh!
Bring a song and a smile for the banjo, better get while the gettin's good,
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway where the neons turn to wood.

CHORUS

Oooh!
You can ponder perpetual motion, fix your mind on a crystal day,
Always time for a good conversation, there's an ear for what you say.

CHORUS
Yeah!

Oooh!
Catch a ride to the end of the highway and we'll meet by the big red tree,
There's a place up ahead and I'm goin', come along, come along with me.

CHORUS

Yeah!
Do do doo do...

SUVs and similar sized things, except where needed for business.

Gas (petrol) for less than US$5.00 per US gallon in the US. (Heck, it might disappear entirely.)

Plastic throwaway bottles, etc. -- they'll be too valuable when recycled.

Neocons in the US.

Again in the US, a reliance upon government to solve all the problems -- people have already started to realize that passing a law or making a program doesn't automatically solve a problem or cure anything except bureaucratic unemployment.

The Loon.
Did you know that the Loon is not considered a "bird" or a "water fowl"? It is a specie of it's own. It also has solid bone which birds/waterfowl do not have. We in North America have all four species. It is considered to be prehistoric of over 60 millions years, and what "God" has created is expected to become extinct in less that 25 years because of our polluted lakes from acid rain etc. The Loon's diet is fish.
I am sharing this information with you from an article which I read about 10 years ago and has stuck with me. If what was said is true I guess the "Loon" now only has about 10 years before they are extinct.

"compact flourescent light bulbs will replace incandescent light bulbs."

This is of course a fallacy - as CFLs are just not suitable for many applications - they cannot be dimmed easily for one.

Also they cost far more in expensive resources to make (part of the reason why they cost more to buy) and if used inappropriately - as in cases where they are switched on and off for short periods of time - their life is very short, even shorter than incandescants - thus they create far more 'greenhouse problem'.

Also they can generate massive RFI...

Since the Aussie pollies thought up this clanger (now being copied by other countries!), the Aussie Technical Magazine Silicon Chip has run some more real technical info on the matter...

No, libraries will still be around. But they'll be different. Because of the cost of transportation, especially in rural areas, libraries will supply more stuff over the 'Net. Downloadable MP3 books are currently available (libraries have some difficulties to work out on this, but we're working on it) for example.

What has to change is licensing and copyright, however. The RIAA and similar organizations will have to adopt a new structure and new ideas -- you can't sue everyone in the world for copyright violation!

Unfortunately, we have governments that do not act, but only react....

The cork shortage happened because the cork oaks got a parasite that weakened them. The harvested corks were of inferior quality and the trees died from the parasite. Thus, a solution had to be thought of quickly or a whole years' wine harvest would have been pointless.

The solution they thought of (rubbery plastic 'corks') was so cheap, successful and didn't harm any more trees, that the majority of the wine industry has adopted it. It makes no difference to the wine, it gives hardly any chance of a wine being 'corked' and it doesn't disintegrate in the neck of the bottle, necessitating the rapid hunting down and scrubbing of the tea strainer, in order to appreciate a glass of something soft and fruity.

Bottle corks may be extinct in 10 years, but hopefully the cork oak won't be.

Corks will still be around. Even the bottles of cheap wine I use in cooking are corked.
Also worried about bees. Few so far.

Urinal mints, round disinfectant cakes found in public urinals.
Not sure of the flavor choice (or flavour, depending in your country).
But, maybe they're already extinct, since I haven't seen them for awhile (I have seen ice in urinals in fancy restrauants> But,I'am not sure of the purpose).

The immunity the US has enjoyed from repeated terrorist attacks.

The WTC/Pentagon was massive, and I suspect that there will be at least one nuclear attack in the next 10 years, but there will be a series of smaller attacks of the suicide bomber/car bomb type as well.

"Urinal mints" as you call them, contain Paradichlorobenzene which has now been banned as it is a carcinogen.

Nah, NIOSH lists para-dichlorobenzene as a "possible occupational carcinogen."

Hey, it's in the Urban Dictionary (not that I recommend this site, it can be a bit offensive to some). See below (I edited out a potentially offensive word):

Urinal Mints
Those fresheners you find in urinals to get rid of the smell of urine but it just ends up smelling of bleach and pi** and it makes you wanna puke.

"Eat a urinal mint, it freshens your breath."

NAAAAAH! The reverse in fact. All evidence points to the likelihood of TV being ONLY re runs in the next decade, as the war on terror eats up all non military budgets in both the USA, and the UK.

Script writers and producers will be extinct, however, and all the good actors will be playing bit parts in Bollywood.

After reading about an expiriry date.... I unrolled one the other night (staight out, if I may say so). Being responsible and exercising caution, my new girl friend and I got quite caught up in "squinting and looking" for the expiry date. So much so, we lost the mood. Guess what? It worked as a prophalactic.

Is there no end to this lassie's ability to bring references to birds into threads?

Still, you can use condoms after their use-by date for other purposes.

Exactly one item, hardware or software, required to read anything, text, sound, or image, placed in archive to keep it available for "all future generations."

If the hardware survives, the software will have changed too much to read it.

If the software survives, there'll be no hardware device to play it on.
