I said some are obvious. Can tattoos explode in an MRI? No. Does a goldfish's memory last three seconds? No. Can sacrificially jumping on a grenade save others' lives? Yes. And so on.Well, one of the things about myths is that what seems obvious is not always what is true.
Even Jamie and Adam have been wrong on their sure-things more than once.
I never understood that, either. High school students complain about how badly they hate mathematics, when their cell phones, cars, clothes, all of their status symbols couldn't have been made without.That is something that I will never understand.
Science is bashed and hated by people who happily drive around in cars, use electricity and electronics, visit the doctor, etc. Call it ignorance on their part; it still pisses me off.
If shows like Mythbusters help people realize that virtually everything they use is a product of science, then such shows will have my support.
