    Oct 1, 2011, 7:56 PM - Mythbusters is back! #1

    Hey everybody,

    I was surprised to see that nobody has posted about mythbusters coming back. Anyway thought I would restart a mythbusters related thread. I was extremely happy with the RED RPG myth as it is one of my favorite movies. The motorcycle vs. car myth was quite interesting. I can not wait until the giant newton balls next Wednesday. Anybody with an opinion, please post.

    Yeah, I would have bumped my Mythbusters Thread that no one wanted to post in, but I didn't bump it because no one wants to post in it.

    It was a good episode.

    Back? I didn't know it was gone - are you talking about a new season?

    I hate Time Warner Cable. They don't ever rerun the show from the past week. They have OnDemand, but is Mythbusters on there? Nope.

    I'm watching TW in NC, and each episode is repeated at 8PM the following Wed, just before the new episode.

    Necro'd, but whatever.

    Tonight's episode sort of annoyed me. They did a test where they had a bunch of planes flying in various formations in order to save fuel.

    How is this relevant to anyone?

    Next time my family gets together in their eight identical planes, I'll be sure to fly in a V. What a waste of time.

    Well I think it would apply to bigger planes. Maybe mail planes going to the same destination.

    The Lethal Weapon 2 myth was AWESOME! I've wanted to see them do that myth for such a long time. I was so happy that the film was actually confirmed. The liquid nitrogen actually working so well, was very cool (no pun intended). Can't wait for next weeks episode.

    Oops!

    'Mythbusters' cannonball hits minivan in Dublin
    A cannonball fired as part of an episode of the "Mythbusters" television show missed its mark and hit a Dublin home and a car Tuesday, authorities said.

    The six-inch steel projectile was launched Tuesday afternoon from an Alameda County bomb range but misfired, careening off a hill before going through a home on Cassata Place and then coming to rest in a parked minivan, said sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson.

    No one was hurt, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.

    It's a show about science and satisfying curiosity. "Relevant" is irrelevant. I mean, they test if an explosion will knock your socks off, or if shooting a propane tank will make it explode, or if sonic booms really break glass...these things will NEVER impact my life. It's just fun to learn.

    Has to be the first time anything got that far away from the bomb range.

    I love when Discovery Channel runs a Mythbusters marathon. It's so much fun to have that show on back-to-back when I'm chilling in front of my computer doing work.

    True but he has a point there's not really anything at all entertaining or fun about watching or indeed interesting about learning that flying in a V formation saves fuel.

    Explosions and seeing a fighter jet are kinda cool but watching a bunch of light aircraft fly in a line is about as exiting as watching paint evaporate.
    Disagree. My family and I all think it's very interesting. It could be done in a boring way, but Jamie and Adam make science fun... like any good teachers would. Agreed, it's not Phineas and Ferb to them and never will be, but they prefer it over other shows just there to entertain.

    As do I... for instance I'd rather watch them measure ducks flying in line than some hot shot ego maniac picking between 10 bimbos who he wants to fake marry. But to each his own, you know?
