Overview

Ever wonder if human teeth could stop a speeding bullet? You're about to find out! Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are back to test some of the most insane and dangerous myths ever dreamed of. No theory is safe from the scrutiny of the MythBusters, who take on the Hindenburg disaster, Tesla's Earthquake Machine, the Mentos mint-Diet Coke Internet myth, and much, much more! From the wacky (can a hurricane blow the feathers off a chicken?) to the death-defying, Hyneman and Savage go where no reasonable people have gone before in separating the reality from the ridiculous! The 13 episodes in this collection come from Mythbusters' fourth season, which aired in 2006 on the Discovery Channel cable network. Episodes include: "Helium Football," featuring a field test of helium-filled footballs to find out if they stay aloft higher and longer than regulation, air-filled balls; "Bullets Fired Up," which tests whether or not celebratory bullets shot into the air can kill when they return to earth; "Killer Whirlpool," examining whether or not killer whirlpools really can, as literature suggests, suck down ships to deathly ocean depths; "Crimes and Myth-demeanors 2," which finds the lads testing whether or not stripping down to birthday suits, getting sprayed with dry ice, and donning a Big Bird-like yellow rug will enable them to elude high-tech home alarm systems; "Deadly Straw," which includes tests of burning barnyard myths, including the aforementioned chicken-feather wind-tunnel showdown; "Earthquake Machine," which puts famed inventor Nikolai Tesla's groundbreaking (literally) device to the test; "Diet Coke and Mentos," a study in soda-plus-candy cocktail explosions; "Anti-Gravity Device," which includes a test to see how long it takes -- with how many Christmas lights -- to set a fir tree ablaze; a ballistics bazaar entitled "Firearms Folklore"; the "Holiday Special," testing avalanche-spurring yodels and Christmas-tree water cocktails ; a "Pirate Special" exploring swords, cannons, guns and the laundry-cleaning capabilities of grog; "Hindenburg Mystery," examining whether or not, as claimed, hydrogen doomed the dirigible; and finally, "Underwater Car," wherein they submerge a vehicle in water and explore escape routes.
