Main Question or Discussion Point
Ok so I'm watching this online and I just keep thinking that those guys are.. missing a few nuts n bolts in their head :uhh:
There was one where they build a replica of the arc of the covenant and the girl wired it up to an electric fence transformer to deliberately shock the other guy. He was kinda ticked.cronxeh said:Quality TV, very entertaining. I cant believe they've never been injured with so many flaws in experiments
I can honestly say engineering classes ruined this show for me. Ignorance is bliss! I cant watch those experiments without some crap from statics or dynamics class popping into consciousness and yelling "wrong!"zoobyshoe said:There was one where they build a replica of the arc of the covenant and the girl wired it up to an electric fence transformer to deliberately shock the other guy.

HELL YEAH, she's HOT!!TheStatutoryApe said:And that redhead assistent of their's is a hottie.:!!)
I didnt say they were stupid, I just said they didnt reach all the conclusions. From season 2 I personally thought it is possible to slingshot a guy over 200 yards and land on a matress. How is trickier, but theoretically its possible. I think by making a longer acceleration ramp for less G's and attaching a glider to the dummy, you can land a dummy even farthercyrusabdollahi said:The recenlty made a rocket out of plumbing pipe and parts. The thing was a monster at 200lbs. They made it in 2 days, and if flew very nice. I was very impressed. There not so stupid as you make them out to be cronxeh. What myth have they done that has been wrong? Id say 99.9% of their conclusions are good. Do you really think they would just go on tv and say, based on this equation this wont work? Then the show would be stupid, thats kind of why they are out to bust the myth. The show isint called 'fact teller' well tell you whats a fact because its common sense.
Which they didn't do with the one about the guy sandblasting the PVC pipe. I thought right away, that myth was NOT busted. They didn't give it a proper test.cyrusabdollahi said:Well, if you cant provide an anwser, then you are not one to say what can and cant be done. I dont recall the myth saying anything about a glider on his back......You dont understand the point of the show, do you? YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE MYTH AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE!

cyrusabdollahi said:Umm, did you bother to pay attention why? They wanted to see if it was possible, after they said it would be impossible to do by a person. Thats what they do, they show it cant be done, and then try to do it by any means possible. You dont get the point still, do you? It would always split along the grain, no matter what. So the myth was busted, either way. How is this not a valid test to you?
I dont think so. It was in that little probability that Einstein told you it was possible to see all molecules in one chamber, (1/2)^n. The probability says its possible. Odds are slim, but still. How is it related to the arrow? I dont know, but I know its possible.cyrusabdollahi said:Ok, ill give you that much, maybe like .00000000000000000000000000001% chance. But I would still call that BUSTED. Common, be sensible.
I'm trying to find the original source of this myth with no luck. Some sites are saying he just built a huge mirror.cyrusabdollahi said:I agree with the solar beam test (sort of). They did do it at MIT, but the myth said an army of men holding mirrors,
