Season 12 : Episode 8

Show Summary

Did a Medieval Chinese astrologer make it into space by strapping rockets to his chair and setting them off? Just how hard IS it to find a needle in a haystack? Can you in fact go insane by having water drip on your forehead? These are just a few of the myths, urban legends, and improbable sayings that the Mythbusters try to figure out. Comprised of special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Heineman - as well as their mottley crew of Mythbuilders, Mythterns, and resident 'crash test dummy' Buster - they don't just tell the myths, they put them to the test to see which ones are possible, and which ones are just plain bunk. As of 2008, MYTHBUSTERS has tested 600 myths, done over 1,900 experiments and created over 650 explosions to prove these Myths Right or Wrong! Some information found here is thanks to http://www.mythbustersfanclub.com , who helped with episode ordering, season break downs, and other myth information :)

    Love the variety of mythbusters, but there's a new Nat Geo show called Showdown of the Unbeatables that is also really interesting! Fridays episode looks awesome
  • Ligtning strike to umbrella

    6.0
    I was wondering if lightning were to strike an umbrella, if the fabric would really burn up and disintegrate like I see on cartoons and movies, leaving just the metal frame.

  • RIDING MOTORCYCLE ON WATER

    10
    I just watched the episode where Jamie rode a motorcycle approximately 300 feet across water. I was wondering if he was to use a rear sand tire how far would he make it. A sand tire has cups on it so it should act like a paddle wheel and keep his speed up so that he could go past the 300 foot mark.
  • I have a new Myth for you.

    10
    I would to show you my Myth. Its a big wish from me that my Myth in your program is. Please. When its not so is iam so sad, because iam a so big fan from you that be a sad. Here my Myth: Its right that can bring an entire tree to burn quite a lot of sparklers.
  • Steam Canon problem

    7.5
    You used copper pipe which doesn't have enough mass. When water converts to steam it takes a lot of calories to change from water, still at the same temperature (phase change). The copper pipe didn't have enough mass to convert all of the water to steam instantly. Try it with something as heavy as an old canon and it will work. Leonardo didn't have lightweight copper pipe to work with like we do now.moreless
