I love Mythbusters. I watch one episode every weekday. I would watch two episodes, but it's on when I'm at school. Darn. Anyway, if you watch it, tell me what your favourite myth is. PLEASE! I'm really bored here and I totally need something to read. I'm begging you!

Anyway, if you have no idea what I'm rambling about, then on the Discovery Channel at 6pm, then again at 7pm on Discovery Channel +1, is Mythbusters. Well, it is over here in England. It's an hour long and the advert breaks take ages, but man, is it worth it!

Yeah, i'm the fan of MythBusters. Great show :)

And my favorite myth was "Escape From Alcatraz", probably because i love movies about prison escape. Those are my favorites(for example: TV show "Prison Break (http://imdb.com/title/tt0455275/)" and movie "The Shawshank Redemption (http://imdb.com/title/tt0111161/)" <- those are the best creations ever (h))

I like it too!! Don't watch it often though, I'm more a fan of brainiac, such a cool show :D

I don't have a favorite myth and I like prison break too!!! A really cool show!! I wish I could've watched every episode, but I couldn't.. Last episode was/is this week i thought..

Ohhh, I like mythbusters, especially Adam, either he's like me (crazed, psychotic and in desperate need of a straight-jacket) or he should become a comedian.

My favorite's the one where they use balloons to try and make a child "fly" I loved when Kerrie (right? the one that left the show and Grant took her place) use her fire-"breathing" skills to pop balloons, I like fire. . .

Myth Busted.

I am a MythBusters fan

My fave was when they used salamai to launch a rocket. It exploded and salamai went everywhere, the second time the rocket landed on the car

01-07-2007, 19:31:52

01-26-2007, 02:15:51
Total fan of mythbusters.........really like the flying ming dynasty chair............buster owns

01-26-2007, 11:05:22
I've only watched a few but I have to say I love it ... trying to refloat a boat with ping-pong balls ... disproving the claim you can pull the back axle off a car by tying it to a lamp-post then driving away at speed .... trying to make a kid take off while tethered to balloons ....oh and the body of Hoffa search at Giants stadium, to name but a few

ok I admit it - I've watched more than a few:frfr:

01-27-2007, 00:59:12

03-09-2007, 10:21:54
You gotta love MythBusters! :D

The way they set out to destroy childhood beliefs and urban myths. :P What's next, they'll prove Santa Claus doesn't exist? :o I know he exists, I know it! :'(

i have been watching mythbusters since i was 4

08-14-2007, 18:52:38
I LOVE MYTHBUSTERS!!!! It is my favorite show in the world. My favorite is the one where they where looking for Jimmy Hoffa in Giant's football field (My favorite football team is the Giants.)

08-19-2007, 01:25:12
mythbusters is good sometimes but they seem to sometimes tweak the tests to reflect what they think the outcome should be. an example is when they did the test about the steel cable cutting someone in half. jamie said in the beginning that he didnt think it would work then they bent the cable around something before they let it go witch took tension off the cable and it didnt cut the pig. i know for a fact that steel cable can cut a person in two because i have seen it happen.

08-19-2007, 08:01:31
i like the mithbusters but should you post it in the movie thread :what: its a show, anyways i catch it all the time because i live in canada :) *where discovery channel is from* so it plays like 2-3 times a day :p my favourite one is where they make homemade stuff and the stream of bubbles rises from the buckey and they light it on fire :P or the one where jamie and adam are in a cartoon

11-30-2007, 04:05:34
it cool there crazy

01-04-2008, 04:45:18
i watch it sometimes.. i seen an episode on (was it last night?) of re-visited episodes.. and it was one about shooting through a scope of another rifle?......... i liked it because i read a book about Carlos HAthcock called "Silent Warrior" and i really liked the book, i think the myth was busted...........again... but funny on the re-addition to the myth they use replicas of what the actually would use........ WHY not do that in the first place?? ...........then i fell asleep and i think they were bringing out the big guns, lol

01-04-2008, 07:09:44
i like the one where they get coke and mentos and see what goes higher

03-31-2008, 20:12:38
8 minutes remaining so I can watch today's episode :)

04-01-2008, 00:31:33
I love the Soda Drinks' myths episode, and the Tree/Cannon episode when they blow the thing.
And the one where they put an egg into a car's engine with a hole on it, and the egg somehow patches up the thing. I was pretty amazed :o.

04-01-2008, 00:59:59
i love that show especialy the one where they take the m82a3z7r colt 50. sniper rifle out and shoot the water lol :P

04-01-2008, 08:53:50

04-01-2008, 14:52:59

04-07-2008, 16:29:43

04-07-2008, 21:10:49
lol sorry never heard of it

04-07-2008, 21:43:53
i like the one where they get a small bridge and get them electronical little robots and they try to make it break

04-08-2008, 22:12:01
oh yeah i remember that one..... to bad the tore up the bridge in the making

/\__/\__/\__/\__/\__/\__/\ <-----------bridge

05-04-2008, 02:52:26
ok the one with a side airbag being activated while someone is trying to break in and the lock pick shooting through the burglars head.. this is riduculous... after not being able to pick the lock with a robot.. they try kicking the door with a mechanism.. and then the have to amp it up with super human pressure... after that failed and the myth was obviously busted.. the still made a device to shoot through the replica of a persons "gel" skull and fake noodle brains and blood... that's just sick to see the results like that in my opinion........

it was already busted!!!!.. "PD ok let's just sh... k done

05-04-2008, 03:53:42
I like when they bust a myth, they just prove it using their own way. Even though it's not supposed to be like that.
Funny stuff.

05-06-2008, 01:30:52
oh no they are going to kill some bees with vodka(maybe that or get them drunk)

oh weird.. oh yes i'll spray this box of bees 5times with water.. and one with vodka

oh i wonder if spraying water 5times and waiting a quarter hourwill hurt them any pfffft

05-06-2008, 01:57:18
You know, I'm a big fan, and I've always had this question: "Could a cornstarch suspension act as a bulletproof vest?" I mean, the more speed and pressure you put on it, the more it resists, right? :?

05-06-2008, 01:58:10
lol i dunno

i'll e-mail Adam and Jamie to come here and tell ya

05-06-2008, 02:02:03
Really? :D Cool! :D

08-16-2008, 23:32:20
i love mythbusters! my fav is the tree cannon

07-05-2009, 04:40:37
mythbusters is an awesome show
my fav between adam and jaime is jaime

whos ur fav character

07-05-2009, 05:16:42
i love mythbusters i started watching it 5 years ago and still going strong lol i used to watch braniac it was shown in the usa for awhile but its off here so i cant watch it idk what my favorite myth is probably one of the movie specials idk i loved the jaws ones i guess i have seen them all so many times it gets repetative i thought the toy car racing the viper of a quarter mile was cool adn the giant lego ball lol

07-05-2009, 06:37:01
i love it too, it would be so awesome to do all those experiments :D
i liked the one they did about cabin fever and how jaime and adam went crazy being alone in their cabins for a long time, and i also liked the one where they tested to see whether a passenger on a plane who had never flown a plane before could crash land it with some help from the control tower...

oh yeah i've seen brainiac it's awesome we still get it here but it's just all reruns :S

07-05-2009, 10:55:52
I think the whole crew work well together :)
I quite like the skunk one where it wouldn't do what skunks usually do lol

The airbag one I had busted before they even started lol, you could hit a parked car with a 747 and they wouldn't go off. you need the ignition on DOH.. plus like they said, fitted in the trim, go the other way, its a volocity and impact sensor, its really hard setting them off twiddling with the wires (luckily!), could you just imagine an auto electricains customers face when you tell them you've just set of a few $1000 worth of air bags off in their nice shiney BMW?!
