Adam and Jamie investigate the movie cliche of whether someone can survive a jump from 20 feet into a trash dumpster and if they do can they get up uninjured and escape their pursuers. Also, Kari, Grant and Tory look into a story about old time deep sea diving suits. In that one the look into what would happen if the air flow to the suit was suddenly cut when the diver was at the 300 foot level. Supposedly the pressure of the water would be so great that the diver not only would be crushed, but his body would be squeezed into the helmet. However, after they complete the small scale testing Kari has to leave because she is expecting her own little Mythbuster any day and introduces the boys to her temporary replacement Jesse.

Did You Know?


During the filming of the dive suit squeeze segment, someone inadvertently turned off the refrigeration unit containing the meat for Tory's meat man simulation. As a result, the meat wound up spoiling. In fact, when they did the experiment the smell of the rotten meat came up through the tube and sickened a lot of the crew. See more »
