Mythbusters Rock !!! Answered

Don't ya think this show is awsome?

It is one of my favourite shows, and is very entertaining. Some of the rigs and machines they build are amazing:

e.g one of my favourite:

Jamie's " Graplling Gun Ascending Winch " ( Episode- Superhero Hour )

The myths are very good aswell such as "The Ice Bullet" .

Im Sure you people on instructables watch this show. C'mon!

What do you think of it?
Fave myth?
Fave rig / machine?
Did any of the myths help you in life situations?

( BTW, Can't wait, going to download series 4 XD)
( Too bad they don't show much new episodes in England!)


is the show comming back on with new episodes? it kinda looked like they just kind of ended.

i wonder if the Alkali metals react with the oxides of deuterium and tritium (different isotopes of hydrogen, so the oxides are similar to water)

myth: exploding pen rig: ninja robot no

One of my favorite places to haunt (after Instructables and MAKEzine) is Mythbusters

we should ask them to do a myth on killer knex guns and watch them build the craziest knex gun ever or just stumble on the instructables site and totally complain about the terrible instructions ;D

On a sort of related note: Have you ever heard of a show called "Brainiac: Science Abuse" across the pond? We had it here in the UK, and it was more or less the only science based show on the tv for a while. I suggest you check it out, it's worth a watch.

Do you remember to episode where they dropped lumps of highly reactive rare earth metals into bath tubs? They cheated - there were explosives under the tubs.

Did they indeed? I know some metals would cause such a reaction, but was always led to believe that metals such as Francium were so unstable that they decayed within a few seconds anyway, thus making it extremely hard to find. I suppose it makes little sense to throw that in a bathtub. Ah that also explains about the metals we weren't allowed to know the names of as well, because they didn't exist. How did you find out?

I can't remember who told me - it was on another (science) forum.

I remember that episode. I always kind of questioned the scientific accuracy of that show. I still enjoyed it none the less... BTW, it comes on G4 here in the States.

Of Course! I watch it most the time! However I find Mythbusters to be more entertaining and enjoyable.

What really is so amazing about them? :-/

They are some of the smartest pyrotechnic and mathematical genius's in the world

Abosolute Bollocks! It predicts that the torrent (season 4) will be finished downloading in 24 days. :@ :@ :@

Well i can't really.... Thats the only complete season 4 torrent available. It'll be worth it though.....28 sweet episodes! Hurry up you darn seeders!

Whay no just download each separate eps. then? =)

-it's only a little bit more elbow grease used in shunting a mouse.

Hassle. Trying to find all the induvidule episodes is really hard!

Mathematical geniuses!?!?! HA HA HAH AH HAHAHHAAAAA!!!!! There just some guys with special effects experience, albeit at the top of there class.

I lol'd Like seriously laughed out loud.

It's my favorite show, waayyy better than stuff like smash labs because the mythbusters actually do everything smartly... then blow stuff up.

Or Canada you get stuff from 2 years back season wise.

Ooh boy, Mythbusters thread... My favorite rig they've built is the "Firebug" which is essentially a canister of gasoline strapped to a remote controlled car. They were testing the myth that you can ignite a trail of gasoline leaking from a moving car, and have the fire catch up with the car and cause it to explode.
