MythBusters: Jet Assisted Chevy

MythBusters

I love the MythBusters more and more every day. They are such fun and wonderful skeptics. The early evening rerun of the MythBusters involves a`72 Chevy Impala strapped to a rocket. Or vice versa. At any rate, it mimics the Darwin Award’s most popular entry. It seems ironic that a UPS commercial is using a […]

MythBusters: Confederate Rocket

MythBusters

D’oh. I’ve seen this MythBusters before. Adam and Jamie are testing out if the Confederate army could have made a long range missile during the Civil War. American Civil War, I guess. Other people have had civil wars too. There is a pre-shaving lube called Lectric Have. Removing that “E” saves a ton of money, […]

MythBusters: 22,000 Feet Fall

MythBusters

The last MythBusters you made me watch, they blew up a cement truck until there was practically nothing left. This episode, they are going to make an even bigger explosion. The myth involves an airplane funner falling 20,000 feet. But he was saved by the cushion of a shock wave emanating from a train station […]

MythBusters: Salsa Escape

MythBusters

The MythBusters try to break out of jail with salsa tonight. They don’t teach you that in Heloise. Jamie and Adam are also trying to get dried cement out of a cement truck with dynamite. They also have four cement trucks to test with and blow up. Four cement truck to blow up! This will […]

MythBusters: Exploding Port-a-Potty

MythBusters

MythBusters is an easy show to watch after a hard day of work. You can pretend you are learning things while sitting on a couch trying to kill your brain with wine coolers. You know that is exactly what you do. The exploding port-a-potty is a true story. What the MythBusters don’t believe is that […]

MythBusters: Crimes and Myth-Demeanors

MythBusters

Tonight, the MythBusters test a bunch of criminal myths. Avoiding heat detectors, blowing up safes, and more. There is no way this can’t be fun. The first system Adam and Jamie are up against is a fingerprint analyzing doorknob. Not only does it look at the fingerprint, it measures temperature and heart beat. Wow, that […]

MythBusters: Confederate Rocket

MythBusters

After a delightful two days of staying up for about 24 hours straight twice in a row, it is time for some MythBusters. Let us stop and see what my brain can put together in this semi-lucid state. The only myth tonight involves the first long range missile supposedly launched during the American civil war. […]

MythBusters

MythBusters

MythBusters starts off a night of TV that doesn’t make me want to puke tacos into the open chest wound of a television producer. This MythBusters episode puts a few movie myths to the test. Explosive decompression, pulling the axel out from under a car, and using a bullet as a truck fuse. Yes, it’s […]
