Introduction: Jesse Vs. the Tree 2

About: Perhaps I am the heretical harbinger of the New Archaic, perhaps I just like wood.
In his triumphant return, Jesse enacts revenge on The Tree and vindicate himself in Bottle Battles - Round 3.

This time he has an increased amount of safety equipment.

We discovered that the key here is to use a bottle with a compressed / compound cork (natural cork pieces which have been reconstituted together). You can inspect the cork composition by peeling back the top of the capsule. It is advised, however, that you fully remove the capsule before attempting.

A fully natural cork does work but it takes much longer and necessitates a greater amount of force. A fully synthetic cork results in the bottle exploding (see Jesse vs. The Tree). A two handed swing should be utilized, as one arm does not seem to generate enough momentum. The momentary increase in internal pressure will force the cork out of the top of the bottle. This is only recommended in dire situations where other opening apparatuses are unavailable.

When it works, this is an awesome trick.
