Your urban legends

When I think of urban legends, the Mythbusters come to mind. Perhaps this is because I watch the show almost religiously, or just today's society. Although their methods are often questionable, they have put some definitive legends to the test. However, I often find myself wishing that they would test some less famous and more common everyday topics. For example: Will covering yourself in a fire blanket protect you from an explosion? Will touching an electric fence while wet short out your watch? Your thoughts?

Something you won't see on Mythbusters, one for the boys,

If you xxxxxxxxxx a lot, you'll go blind..

Anyone care to bust this myth.. : - )

Totally Busted
My folks were gone one day for the entire day, so I did it all day long with visual stimula. I was high for hours, and I certainly didn't lose my vision. I highly recommend you try to bust it for yourself ;]
TOO MUCH INFO!!! Now to gouge out your eyes with a rusty spoon! So, I guess, the act itself doesnt cause blindness -- but peoples reactions do :P
LOL probably.
I have a feeling the Mythbusters want to test that out ;-) -- it'd just wouldn't make good T.V. (At least, for their target audience :P)

Will touching an electric fence while wet short out your watch?

I think the least of my worries would be my watch....

But yes, I would like to know the answers of some, though certain ones, in my mind, shouldn't be solved. Like Nessie. It's just fun to wonder and imagine.

If you touched the fence "with" the watch, maybe.
