I saw this show for the first time yesterday and it was funny! The guys investigated an urban legend that claimed some retired army sergeant got a rocket and strapped it to a 1967 chevy. So they tried to recreate the myth, and it rocked!
Also they debunked the pop rocks/soda myth that your stomach will blow up. It was so funny, they used a pigs stomach to try and get it to explode, you have to check it out!
If it looks like an orb, floats like an orb, it must be an orb!If you're reading this, you're too close!________________________________________________Posted Image

That is a good show!  I just love watching some of their methods that they use to prove/disprove some of those urban legends! ;D

THat shows awesome... did you see the one busting the myth that if you're going to fall into water you should throw a hammer to break the surface tension to save your life? I missed the end of it and was wondering if anyone could tell me how it turned out.
The biggest and scariest ghost of all of them is the imagination

Maharat,

Saw it, and nope you'll still hit the water pretty darn hard, they tore the crap out of their dummy...don't even want to see how they tested the 3rd rail and then aired it.

masquarade, they made a stunt whizzer... although they did use real urine. built a model out of ballistics gel, and rigged a flke bladder, and everything.... they proved, if you're kneeling about three inches from it, firing off a half inch stream, it will work.

I was especially interested in the decompression.  Nice to know that if I get a Flyingorb on board and he's sees Santa's reindeers up at the same altitude and he shoots his .38 through the window we'll be fine!
