Kari tried this method and succeeded. While Grant built a cannon to launch hailstones, Tory learned about their potential size and destructive power and Kari crafted baseball-size ice balls. They tested a large ball constructed from balloons made to resemble smoked sausages, built by Kari; a giant makeshift balloon bubble wrap, built by Grant; and giant mylar balloons stuffed with smaller latex balloons, built by Tory. However, when Jamie started at distances of 16 ft 4. The segment was shelved since the quick result gave no chance for the team to expand on the myth's background or the processes involved. After six hours of construction, they launched the canoe and steered it into the oncoming breakers with little trouble. Grant noted that the rockets' thrust was too small compared to the car's weight approximately 4000 lbs.
Although Jamie managed to fit on just fine, when Adam tried to climb on with him, the board was unable to support them. They obtained a car similar to the one in the scene, modified it to accept an ejector seat, and fitted it with enough rockets to generate 800 lbf 3,559 N of thrust. Can bullets made of silver or engraved with an enemy's name be as effective as unmodified ammunition? Is it really as easy to move and bury a dead body as it is in the movies? The resulting force on landing was 9 g; however, Adam found the total weight of the padding 150 lb 68 kg very uncomfortable and hit his head on the support board underneath him. Since the circumstances shown in the video would have proven fatal, Adam and Jamie declared the myth busted. During a second trial, in which he was given a gun and could shoot back, he lasted 32 seconds and managed to hit both Grant and Kari in that time.
Many unusual meats taste like chicken. One final attempt with the cable shortened to 40 ft 12 m failed as well, so Adam and Jamie declared this portion of the myth busted. When Buster was wrapped up and dropped from the full 35 ft 11 m , he experienced forces of 29 g torso and 48 g head , indicating that he would survive with some degree of injury. Blueprint drawings used to introduce segments Crew member Eric Haven inherited the job from the team, drawing on his experience as a comic book artist. Confirmed For the first test, Grant and Kari successfully pushed Tory backwards, but could not steer very well.
For each myth, they chose 10 men and 10 women. Men are better at packing a car for a road trip. The team commented, however, that this activity was very uncomfortable and dangerous, due to the powder's tendency to absorb saliva and potential to cause respiratory infections. When the team attached a funnel-shaped exhaust nozzle and injected the fuel through an atomizer creating a , they could safely propel the kart to a distance of 15 ft 4. Confirmed The Build Team did preliminary testing in the shop to determine the amount of force that the glue could support, using a barbell rig built by Tory. Adam later noted that he and Jamie did not cook the chicken, but instead ate food provided by the crew in its place.
Volunteers did not speak and wore special clothing to disguise their genders. Confirmed MythBusters outrigger canoe made of duct tape Adam and Jamie set out to build a seaworthy craft that could hold them and several days' worth of supplies. The Build Team judged the myth as busted, since the amount of food eaten had much more of an effect on reaction time than the turkey did. This myth was inspired by a viral video. Plausible Kari built two models for small-scale testing, one based on historical drawings, the other with changes to make it more aerodynamic. The first chicken slipped out of the net, but Adam was able to catch and hold the next one.
Their attempts only caused the kart to move a few feet, so they returned to the workshop for small-scale testing. The women responded more quickly than the men and achieved a higher average number of correct responses 10. They noted that as soon as the cables were cut, the bridge lost the tension holding it up and the jumper's support was gone. Tory lasted 1 hr 58 min; Grant, 1 hr 58 min; Kari, 2 hr 39 min. Kari noted that because silver tends to shrink and deform as it cools after molding, those bullets may have acquired shape irregularities that affected their flight. The team judged the myth plausible, but noted that results of different methods can vary widely from person to person. The chess set in the shelter also helped both men in this respect.
Based on a scene in the film. Can balloons act like an during a car crash and save someone's life? Under Jamie's supervision, the crew fitted Adam with safety equipment, covered him in three layers of this design, and dropped him from 15 ft 4. Grant tried to pick the right car, watching from a helicopter and using a similar camera setup as an actual drone. Busted Adam and Jamie considered the effect of water resistance and underwater buoyancy forces on a rider's stability and balance. They built a full-sized vehicle and launch ramp and set up at a rock quarry, placing the ramp on a ridge overlooking a lake.
Busted The Build Team attached Buster to a surfboard with a rocket motor attached to the end. Can a nail gun inflict wounds as lethal as a firearm? Confirmed Adam, Jamie, and the Build Team had their pictures taken while showing expressions for five different emotions. Next they investigated the scenario of a charging knife wielder. But James Cameron said that while that meant the prop designers had gotten the size wrong, the script from the movie said that Jack had to die. The team brought in 12 volunteers and had each one smell 6 pairs of samples, guessing which if any samples in each pair were fear sweat. He succeeded in the first test due to the lack of dust clouds at the center of the circle; however, when the cars drove straight past Kari in a second test, he was unable to pick the one that took her.
Can two cars stuck nose-to-nose really do the maneuvers shown in the film? Tory then tried his own methods: He failed when he used a pocket massager inside the glove, but succeeded by using a drill hidden in the glove. A control run with no explosive gave a range of 27 ft 8 m ; this result did not change when a 10 lb 4. The average score for the men was 51, while the women scored 45, with the men being able to pack the cars slightly faster, suggesting slightly better performance for the men. To obtain a fresh sample of fear sweat, Tory rappelled to the bottom of a 165 ft 50 m vertical shaft in , fighting as he descended. Remove as much of the narration as possible. Despite calling the myth busted at that point, the team continued testing with various balloon configurations of their own designs.
He also put together chairs, a table, and a chess set using pieces of wood. These are generally listed simply by the year in which they were transmitted. In addition, every stone ball broke apart on impact. Which will fall faster, a six-pack of light beer or regular beer? Adam and Jamie noted that unlike the steel weight, cadavers are actually much easier to carry since they can be slung over the shoulder to distribute the weight more evenly, and unlike the wad of chain, the cadaver could be moved more incrementally lifting an arm or a leg at a time, rather than the whole thing all at once. Adam and Jamie built a bite force tester, but could not get any sharks to bite on it.
