  • Myth busters?

    So I gotta ask... How many of you are jealous of those two yahoos... I mean they get to blow stuff up all day for a living... do scientific testing on Mento's and Diet Coke...


    Talk about a dream job...

    Oh yeah I'm jealous !!! I liked it when the mounted the jet engine in the car and pointed it at a ramp towards some mountains. Unexpectedly (for them) it blew up on the ramp. That was cool, but $10,000 down the tubes ....

      yep, another one of them Dream-jobs where someone actually pays you to have fun...

      2 guys from the Netherlands are over there right now I believe.
      The have proven you can't tear apart 2 phone-books (yellowpages) when their pages are interleaved onto each other.
      They did try this overhere with 2 cars on either side of the books, trying to pull them apart.
      From one of the books the back tore off, but the loose pages didn't slide.

            My favorite was when they anihilated the concrete mixer. That was way too much.

              I liked the one where they were working on a Steam Cannon, for the full scale test they were only a mile or so out of San Fransico with the cannon aimed at the city. The whole time I was thinking, crap they don't know how far that thing is shoot, steam launches jets, this ball is going into some buildings. Fortunately for them they couldn't get it to build to the pressure they were targeting so they shot it at a lower pressure and were SHOCKED at how far it went at slightly over half the pressure they wanted. Blowing stuff up is always cool.

                  Where do I sign up? My absolute dream job, except for the parts where they go up high (I'm a bit nervous at heights). I dod LOTS of fact checking/where do I get (whatever) in my job. I'd be great as a researcher. If I could do it from NC.

                      The chevy one reminded me of the episode where they were testing the different Gas Mileage Booster Gimicks. One even set the engine bay on fire. But the test that caught my interest was running the car on Hydrogen. They just layed a hose connected to a tank of hydrogen on top of the carbuerator and the car started! Was going smoothly until they revv'ed it up and it backfired. But for such crude fuel metering it was cool to see it work.

                        Definetly. IIRC all that was left was a tire, half the engine block, and the entire mixer portion about 400 yds away. Would kill to have that job.

                        And the redhead on that show...yowza.

                            Did anyone see the episode where they pulled a taxi behind a revved up 747?
                            Man, the taxi took to the air for 50 feet and must have rolled twenty times !!!
                            Way cool !!!

                              My favorite episode is still the one where they fired chickens out of an air cannon at an aircraft windshield to see if frozen chickens offered a more severe impact than thawed ones. Incredible!
