Mythbusters is great show. I’ve learned all sorts of interesting things on Mythbusters.

I’ve learned that throwing a penny off the Empire State Building is harder than it sounds. I’ve also learned that if a penny did fall all the way to the ground from that height, it wouldn’t have enough force to kill a person.

I’ve learned that it would be highly unlikely for a ninja to be able to catch an arrow during battle.

I’ve learned that the fastest way to cool a can of beer (or soda) is to use a fire extinguisher. It only takes about three minutes. But a more practical method is to put your beer (or soda) in salty ice water.

I’ve learned that driving your car underneath a semi-truck like they do in the movies will indeed turn your car into an instant convertible.

I’ve learned that it takes the force of two tanks to rip apart two phonebooks with the pages intertwined together.

I’ve learned that you can build a bridge out of duct tape. You can also build a boat out of duct tape.

I’ve learned that it’s possible to tenderize meat with high explosives.

See, who says TV isn’t educational? Now if you’ll excuse me I think I’ll go watch one more episode before bed.
