    knob I liked it better before you made sure everyone knew you were trolling

    awwww man

    i was getting nibbles

    i was gonna go for a full on bite with this one:

    "mythbusters is just one of those things where the majority of people don't like something because it is awful, so the internet nerd patrol pretends to like it so they can be underground and edgy"

    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?

    actually they did a "revisit" for that one where they did all that stuff after a lot of fans wrote in

    and yeah they wound up changing their verdict

    No shit. They get points knocked off anyway for daring to doubt Carlos Hathcock.

    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

    I have turned off the Daily Show for years when the guest comes on. Now, it's rare for me to even make it that long.

    Or a show where they just let a guy go and see how long it takes for attack dogs to catch and bring him down. Give the guy a suit, obviously, but I really only in Myth Busters to see shit get wrecked.

    the daily show would be fantastic if it wasn't for the audience

    jon stewart is a fantastic interviewer, he just cannot get a word in edgewise because of all the fucking clapping

    or if he interviewed people I could give a shit about. its usually stupid actors or some stupid author. interview someone interesting kplzthx

    seriously why can't you people watch decent television

    what is not decent about two dudes nearly killing themselves over and over again by blowing up trucks and fucking around with microwave guts in the name of pretend science?

    boooring

    there aren't any real people or catty drama in mythbusters

    it is basically boring and awful

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

    All Brainiac is, is tweo guys blowing up caravans.

    I mean it's an entertaining show but it's even less intellectually honest than MythBusters.

    I really want to see that guy with that anti-bear suit go toe to toe with a bear.

    I mean, watching people with bats going to town on him, and getting hit by trucks and falling down steep inclines is good and all.

    But I want the real deal, hot bear on armor action.

    kari byron is a useless cunt

    untrue

    she provides much needed titties to what would otherwise be a total sausage party

    that other dickbag with the soul patch is the useless cunt

    and that asian dude, he's alright.

    I don't watch shows for the titties, I got titties at home

    all I know is that bitch doesn't do shit

    I got titties at home, too

    that don't mean I don't turn to television for a much-needed influx of the ever-valuable new titties

    he has had obama on, along with a bunch of UN diplomats and other presidential candidates

    this is why I don't much like my habit of watching an episode every now and then. I always miss the interesting people and always get the bums

    although I don't care much for obama and am not upset about missing that

    My favorite myth was the one from the civil war about the dude getting shot in the nutsack and a lady behind him getting pregnant from the bullet.

    That was such a complicated setup to test.

    I don't even need an explanation or narration. Just a non-stop montage of cars getting dropped off clips and guns firing in slow motion. Nothing on? Turn on the property destruction channel. It's either that or I take it to the streets.

    I've seen bullet proof glass that has stopped military rifle fire from automatics. In person.

    So, that one I was a bit iffy on. It depends on grade of bullet proof glass, rate of fire, proximity, and total stress per square inch.

    I hate that show on history, digging for the truth I think? the guy doesn't find anything new or interesting. its just stuff thats been in a textbook for years. if it was a show about going over ancient history and stuff thats fine but they market it has him being some indiana jones or something and Im just not buying it.

    Hammond is a legend. The new guy is Dick from Dick and Dom, unless he is Dom. Either way he's a cunt.
