Bored MIT Grads Invent A Shortcut To Picking The Perfect Wine – Umm… Yes Please!
Does the wine aisle in the supermarket ever make you feel like this?
Don’t feel bad – some of MIT’s brightest minds couldn’t figure out how to pick a decent bottle of vino either.
Unlike us, when they got tired of spending $$$ on fancy-sounding wines that tasted like $#!@, they invented something to help.
It’s called Bright Cellars – a wine-matching algorithm they’re now sharing with the world.
Think of it as a personality quiz, but for wine. Rather than confuse you with questions about “full or medium body” (which might as well be Latin to most of us), they ask things like “How do you take your coffee?”, or “What kind of chocolate do you like?”.
Pretty cool right?
The best part about Bright Cellars is that they handpick up to 6 bottles for you each month from vineyards all over the world and send them DIRECTLY to your doorstep based on your taste.
No more wandering up and down the wine aisle playing eenie meenie miney mo…
Imagine – having a wine rack full of great-tasting, sophisticated-sounding wines you actually know something about. You might actually fool your dinner guests into thinking you’re a master sommelier…
Seriously….we can’t wait to get our drink on with this. If you think this sounds like your cup of tea (er, um, glass of wine), check it out here.

Water Spots Hate Lemon Halves
Cut a lemon in half, squeeze out the juice, then use the rind to remove messy water spots naturally. No chemicals or gloves required!
It’s like they always say – when life gives you lemons, clean the bathroom! Or something like that…
Walnuts Aren’t Just For Snacking
Scuffed wood furniture or floors? Try rubbing a walnut on it. No joke. A great source of fiber AND a wood doctor. We like.
Toothpaste Gets More Than Just Your Teeth Clean
Use a clean rag to apply it on car headlights – you’ll be amazed by how fast cloudy, hazy areas turn crystal clear!
