In this episode of Mythbusters, it's double the trouble as Adam and Jamie take on not one but two classic comedy myths. Meanwhile Kari, Grant, and Tory test if you can make homemade diamonds and get the biggest bang in Mythbuster history.
The Mythbusters determine if it's possible for a sky diver's parachute to fail causing him to hit a seesaw and launch a little girl onto the roof of a seven story building. It could happen? Testing it turns out to be so complex it requires the entire team to pitch in.
Jamie and Adam are literally in the soup as they try to determine if they swim faster in syrup than plain cold water. Kari, Tory and Grant try to repeat MacGyver's feat and break a lock with the gunpowder from six bullets and then substantially larger charges. Then they test Davy Crockett's claim that he could hit two targets by firing a bullet at an ax blade to split it in two.
On this all-viral episode of Mythbusters, the team puts the most requested YouTube myths to the test. They size up a smash web-hit about a giant ball of Lego and discover the explosive power of match heads.
The two teams look at a couple fire arms that are thought to be dangerous to the user as well as the target. But for some real fun, Jamie and Adam burn thermite with ice. Of course Kari, Grant and Tori get to have some explosive fun too.
Jamie tries to hang on to the roof of a car as Adam, driving, tries to flip him off; just like in the movies. Then Adam takes a turn on the hood while Jamie drives. Grant, Tory and Kari are back in prison, but not to worry, viewers have given them some ideas for how to escape.
If one bullet is fired and the other is dropped simultaneously from the same height, which will hit the ground first? Or will they hit at the same time, owing to gravity? Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory test an old saying: can you really knock someone out of their socks? In true MYTHBUSTERS fashion, their tests involve Buster, a boxing ring, a nitrogen cannon, a battering ram and, of course, explosives.
Adam and Jamie get down and dirty with the myth that a muddy motorcar gets better gas mileage than it's clean cousin. Meanwhile Kari, Grant and Tory are hitting the sauce and comparing hangovers to test an age old adage about beer and liquor.
Adam and Jamie find out if a car out of control crashes and burns when it falls out of a cliff like in the movies. And Kari, Tory and Grant check the story of a man who rocketed himself into the sky and survived.
Jamie and Adam attempt a jailbreak using the pressure from the carbon dioxide released by lots and lots of antacid tablets. Grant, Tory and Jessi try to determine if it's possible for smugglers to evade boarder patrols by driving at night with their headlights off.
On this episode of mythbusters Adam and Jamie return to the Old Wild West for a quick draw gun-slinging story, while Grant, Tory and Jessi hop on board the Mythbus for another manic myth from the Movie Speed. Hang onto your ten-gallon hats!
Adam and Jamie test for the possibility of disease transmission from rat urine on soda cans and later compare household items for cleanliness versus a toilet seat. Grant, Jessi, and Tory try to skip a car across water.
Can you light a match with a bullet? Can you mail a coconut without a package? Can you make an ear wax candle? Will putting a sleeping persons hand in warm water make him wet himself?
