Myths and the Busting thereof. [Mythbusters thread]

edited September 2007 in Social Entropy++
This is a thread about

Mythbusters_title_screen.jpg

and how awesome it is.

I kind of discovered this show late, having started watching it only a couple months back. It's pretty much the only thing I watch on TV anymore, and it's starting to border on obsession.

Did you know that when you blow up a cement truck, it makes a fart sound?

I learn so much from this show!

    If you fly over a penguin it will keep looking up and back until it falls over,

    that is a myth, so don't let me ever catch anyone saying it again

    This is inevitably going to turn into a Kari Byron ranger thread.

    But Mythbusters does indeed kick copious amounts of ass. Jaime even got his nose busted open last week.

    As much as I enjoy Mythbusters they have far too much of a hard-on for building robots to do stuff and often fail to even do any research into some of their myths.

    Like, they decided to test to see if drafting behind a semi truck would give you better gas mileage. It's really a no brainer with an ounce of research. Drafting is known to increase speed even with things as small as motorcycles, or even speed ice skaters.

    I guess Mythbusters is ok, I never go out of my way to watch it though. If my dad has it on I won't object, but as soon as he's gone it's either back on Cartoon Network or off.

    I was thinking the same thing. the occasional show on discovery (well including mythbusters I guess) and history are about the only things I watch these days. although history isn't exactly the best place to learn history

    There needs to be a spin-off of Myth Busters where instead of solving mysteries or whatever, they just crash cars, blow things up and shoot everything else.

    That is the kind of programming I can get behind.

    Can this '86 Honda Accord withstand the crushing power of a Challenger tank? Let's find out!

    I saw the one about superheroes and it was kind of lame

    They tested out Batman's grappling hook technique to scale a building, except... they're both terribly out of shape and Batman is in perfect physical condition, so it didn't really work

    So, yeah, lame

    What about Brainiac? They try myths about booze and such. And they're British, so it sounds classier.

    Its an okay show, but they need to stay the fuck away from gun myths because they have no idea what they are doing as far as firearms are concerned...its fucking California

    protip: when you are trying to bust the "myth" of an amazing shot a Vietnam veteran sniper made, maybe you could use a talented marksman. and the same firearm. and the same caliber?

    Scientific Method much?

    I dont like daily show too much anymore, or at least not impressed with the few episodes I see every now and then. its always stewart making a joke and the audience clapping for 5 minutes then some terrible and boring guest.

    colbert is great though, because colbert is so awesome
