Roook: I'd forgive a cannonball knocking a hole in my house as long as they paid for the repairs and let me make out with Kari

vossiewulf: I think that's the M1841 6 pounder bronze field gun, painted black. They're lucky they didn't decide to use the main field guns of the Civil War, which were the 12 pounder bronze Napoleon, 10 pounder Parrott, and 3 inch Ordnance Rifle, all of which would have done considerably more damage. I also am stumped as to why they didn't understand that round solid shot was often intentionally fired low so it would skip off the ground and continue to bounce for many hundreds of yards through advancing troops. And that having a ramp-like backstop was a really bad plan. They usually do their research and think through what they're doing much better than that.Actually, maybe not. They did after all set off a 12 foot long liquid fueled rocket INSIDE their shop and were surprised when it about burned the whole place down.

vpb: This has got to be a cool episode.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Personally, I can't wait for Breaking Bad to get the Mythbusters treatment.
louiedog: You want to see if Adam can wander into a store naked and convince everyone he's experiencing a fugue state?
topcon: Mythbusters got boring about five years ago.
mat catastrophe: I was just reminded why I don't read Wired.They couldn't call Discovery, or some at Mythbusters for any sort of confirmation? Fark you, that's lazy farking writing.
styckx: vpb: This has got to be a cool episode.They're all pretty good.. I do miss the old days though before it turned into a Jamie and Adam do the more legit and hardcore science based myths and the others do the not so serious blowing shiat up and crashing cars `myths' that get more and more stupid by the season.Episodes are still pretty good but I wish it would go back to just Jamie and Adam the entire episode.
Diogenes Teufelsdrockh: Ooh, it's that new Mythbusters episode. You know, the one with the explodening and guns going boom while an art major attention whore brought in to to increase the viewership of lonely, horny dweebs does annoying attention whoring and the "science" guys make astoundingly stupid mistakes or way out assumptions that have nothing to do with the myth. That's a cool episode. Anyone who doesn't think it the greatest thing ever is a looooser. I hear next week's episode is about a myth where a dude's balls get hit repeatedly./In before the five year old XKCD comic with Feynman gets posted as though current post-Kari/Tory/Grant Mythbusters is somehow a good science show like early pre-Kari/Tory/Grant Mythbusters was.

Fark you, that's lazy farking writing.I quit reading Wired after my subscription ran out and they sent me to collections for not renewing. Figure that out.
Oznog: The relevant part is already on Youtube
Roook: I'd been hearing rumors of them doing something with Breaking Bad. I hope that's true.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Roook: I'd been hearing rumors of them doing something with Breaking Bad. I hope that's true.Oh, it's true!It'll feature Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) and series creator Vince Gilligan, and it should be broadcast in the spring!
Roook: oh awesome!
