    Hopefully they accounted for "incidentals" in their budget for the episode.

    Re: Mythbusters...Oops!

    Wonder if Jamie or Adam went to the house and yelled, "Little help!"


    <Yes, I read the story and saw that the cannonball passed through the house, but couldn't make a joke to fit>

    I bet the actual video is gold, Jerry, gold. "Um, Adam. Where'd that shot go?" "Be damned if I know."


    "Me not winning isn't important. You do!"

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    no kidding! I think the same thing when I see all of these new "reality gun shows". They are out blasting full automatics and blowing up stuff and it doesn't look to be a gun ranges. Not sure I would like to be next door when they are blasting away with a full auto quad 8mm and shooting at radio guided model planes. Oh, oops, soory about those 8mm rounds through your window.

    They fired artillery across a highway into a neighborhood. The Mythbusters are lucky it was in California, not around here. Our people would have returned fire.

    Doubtful, that show is likely a cash cow for the network. Probably want to look at changing the testing ground location though (or at least have more safeguards in place). Liked the part in the video about how the neighbors were used to hearing explosions.

    Re: Mythbusters...Oops!

    Best line in the article:
    "Neighbors said "MythBusters" often tries its experiments in the area, and they have grown used to hearing explosions."

    Also, how do you miss your target by this much with a cannon?

    Next episode: They'll test whether it's possible for a "Mythbusters" experiment to go wrong.
