Grilling The Mythbusters

I mentioned the Mythbusters a few posts ago. I said I would say more later. Well, later is here so here goes. The Matron of Honor (MoH) and the Best Man (BM) are visiting this presidents day weekend and on that Sunday I scored some tickets for a Mythbusters show. The show is modeled after Inside the Actor's Studio and is hosted by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Here's Ticketmaster's description of the affair:
"Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage take you on a behind-the-scenes look at the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters with a hilarious and entertaining "Inside The Scientist's Studio" style presentation. They will bring stories of myths gone wrong and outtakes of segments never seen on air. They will answer questions about their unique personal chemistry and the mad science behind making one of the most popular shows on television. You can give Jamie and Adam your suggestions for myths they should bust on future programs" - From Ticketmaster.com
Your mission, readers, if you choose to accept it, is to leave suggestions in the comments for myths to be busted or questions to be asked and we will try our best to suggest/ask them to the Mythbusters. Our seats are in the fifth row so we should be able to get their attention.

It sounds like it will be fun. The Wife is asking her students for suggestions/questions as well.


  1. That sounds like it would be very cool to go to.

    Of course now that I am trying to think of a question I've gone totally blank.

  2. You'd think, having lived in SF, having once dreamed of going into the effects industry, and having a slight crush on Kari Byron (like every other geek in the world) that I'd be just full of questions.

    Instead, like JaG, total blank...

  3. JaG: We think so too. We're looking forward to this immensely.

    GH: Yep, I think she's my blow-things-up girlfriend.

    You both have until Sunday morning to come up with something. I must admit, I'm stumped too.
