    You guys got the cement truck one wrong, mythbusters proved you can clean a cement truck that has a light layer of cement with in it with a stick of dynamite. The bigger explosion for a slab was not part of the myth but just all in good fun.

    That underwater car myth gets even crazier. A woman actually survived when her car got submerged thanks to the Mythbusters explaining how to open the door when the car is totally filled with water. She saw the episode and remembered it and was able to escape her sinking car and swim to safety. Too awesome!

  • Derek Wall

    the problem with jumping a car is that they always tend to land nose 1st because of the weight of the engine. and jet taxi was one of my favorite episodes. that was nice of Kallita airlines to lend them their 747 to do that episode

      GOOD NEWS just say am advertisement on TV (December 19 2018) some of the original cast IS COMING BACK. I believe it will be on Jan 2 or 3, 2019. The show will be called MYTHBUSTER MINI. Not a lot of details yet but I guess they got the idea we miss the show. Adam will be the host per the ad

    "But, the team still considers it one of their worst moments."
    I know what's worse... The cannibal mouse incident.
    They were testing a myth that cardboard is more nutritious than cereal, so they had three groups of three mice each, one eating standard mice food, as a control, another eating a sugary cereal, and the third eating cardboard pellets. Quickly, they noticed the cardboard group acting... odd. They came back the next day only to find that one of the mice in the cardboard group had eaten the other two!! They contacted the producers about the incident and forbid them from showing ANY of the footage that they took of the experiment on TV. To this day, none of that footage has resurfaced, and may remain lost forever...

    The cement truck should have been #2 on this list, and I can't help but to feel the water heater should have been at least in the top 5 of this list too.

  • Nikki Villemaire

    I think they tried the JATO Rocket car like three times before finally putting to rest. And one of the funniest and painful things I'd seen on Mythbusters, was Tory messing around before they started testing for the myth they were doing; Tory was on a bicycle and tried to jump over a kids toy wagon, and ended up face planting and eating a bit asphalt.

  • OlympusHeavyCavalry

    They had to radically alter their safety procedures because of an accident????? Everyone is complacent until something happens, which is shown in a number of times in more than several Mythbuster episodes!!!!!!!

    #5 reminds me of a story where people were having a contest they called "snowmoboating", riding Snowmobiles on water!
    BUT one of them neglected to wear a life preserver, and he DROWNED! if i remember, he actually got a Darwin award...
    #2 reminds me of a story where Mythbusters decided to test the "Bug Bomb" myth, the belief that a "bug bomb", a device that fills a room with insecticide, might cause an explosion!
    they ended up with a "plausible" result. it could happen, but it was unlikely, since there probably wouldn't be enough Oxygen in the room, but still likely enough to warrant the "don't use near an open flame" warning label.

      Unfortunately, Grant now has a credibility issue: he's on video claiming that "pink slime" (a cheap filler made from slaughterhouse leftovers that is used in processed meats) is perfectly safe 2 eat. Critics immediately pounced on him, pointing out the lack of proper clinical studies conducted by independent bodies NOT connected either 2 the meat industry or 2 fast food corporations. Turns out Grant was acting as a paid shill 4 McDonalds.
      Dude ... not cool. So not cool.

    I am still disappointed that they didn't give the worst case scenario for cleaning up the cement truck a fair shot before just going for the big flashy explosion.
    Drill a few holes in the concrete and drop the small explosives in the center one. Still not an instant clean but it would probably have been able to clean up the mess with a lot less work than manually breaking it up.
