    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

    all I know is that she is more interesting than you are
    Byron graduated from Los Gatos High School and went on to study film and sculpture at San Francisco State University, graduating Magna cum laude in May 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Sculpture. Byron spent the following year backpacking - mostly in South Asia, including the Himalayas - and was also involved in a number of art projects.

    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.

    Holy shit, I never saw that one. What was the result?

    I think people email these myths in and they just go along with whatever they're getting a lot of questions about.

    Which makes me want to set up multiple email addresses and create a bogus myth to see if it would get on the show.

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

    I didn't even watch Top Gear till after I found out that he was one of the hosts.

    man m16's have nothing on stopping power when compared to the M1. they're about range and accuracy, not stopping power. I mean a bullet is a bullet and the fuck I don't want to be shot by either since I'd probably die either way.

    but I mean the m1 went through several feet of water and through the glass. Im not sure what there is to debate there

    didn't the mythbusters guys make a mistake in mixing up bullet-proof glass and bullet-resistant glass?

    Actually a caliber with lower mass (such as a .223 round delivered by an AR-15) will have further penetration into water--the .308 from an M1 will break-up relatively quickly--and something like a .50 will practically explode when it touches the water

    I think they did. They also fucked up the chicken canon episode by using the wrong glass for that one too (but they revisited that eventually)

    EDIT: the bulletproof glass thing was about the safety glass they stand behind. Jamie said, in one of the first episodes, that it could even stop a bullet. They found out later that it was false.

    but yet it still went through the water anyways

    I mean mythbusters might not be the definitive source on this but its more than anyone else has got for evidence here

    all I know is that I saw the bullet go through the water and the glass. and I dont think they staged it

    By the way, I am seriously considering this false myth idea. We could make up whatever we wanted, submit it to snopes, spread it around the internet, and then finally submit it to the mythbusters message board and have like 15 people reply to it to gain attention.

    Sure, it'd be elaborate, but how fucking awesome would it be if a myth you engineered ended up on mythbusters?
