  • Is Daddy Long Legs a posionus spider, was some one buried in a football field? You will believe a taxi can fly!

    This was a very great episode, it was pretty cool. I learned that Daddy Long Legs is posionus, Taxis can fly, no one was buried in a football field, and Adam is scared of spiders! I liked the part when Adam started getting frecked out by the spider. He found some spiders in his basement, how bad is that? You can find any creepy crawly in any basement anywhere! Also, it was kind of cool to see the Mythbusters tring to blow the taxi away. But it was amazng to see the taxi fly away on the video they got from brazil. It was very excitng! It flew so far! The football field myth was pretty boring though, it could have been more excitng.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the UK, the name 'daddy-longlegs' refers to the crane fly, which is an insect, not an arachnid. It is also used to describe harvestmen (which are arachnids but not spiders) as well as the Pholcids used in the episode (which are indeed spiders).
      So the myth wasn't busted for every type of daddy-longlegs!

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Adam: (after witnessing the plane engines lifted debris instead of flipping the taxi) That was really cool and that was really suck.

    • Adam: All right Buster, ready to fly?

    • Adam: Buster's gotta get dressed and get in the cab so we can go. We're all waiting on Buster.

    • Adam: I think Jamie and I should drive around and pick people up.
      Jamie: Yeah, with nobody in the front seat!
      (Both start laughing)

    • Narrator: Who would have thought? Cheap car, dud battery.
      Jamie: It seems like you have to take the car tire off in order to change the battery. What's the point? Probably because someone built the damn thing in a computer and doesn't have any sense. Piece of crap.
      Narrator: While Jamie curses all things modern...

    • Jamie: Adam doesn't know it yet, but he's digging his own grave.
      Adam: What?
      Jamie: Nothing.

  • NOTES (2)

    • For the Jet Taxi myth, the Mythbusters were unable to get the taxi to flip under the jet engines; they didn't officially "bust" the myth because they weren't using a real jet, instead they were using seperate engines that are used in movies to generate wind. As for the myth, it turns out it really did happen.

    • At first Adam tries to hide it, but eventually he was to face facts; he has Arachnophobia, a fear of spiders.
