Error: please try again. The MythBusters investigate two car crash scenarios: how to escape a car surrounded by a web of deadly power lines, and if a pedestrian can avoid catastrophic impact with a timely jump.
S15, Ep1. Brian and Jon test whether an automobile airbag can cause a fatal injury to the passenger, if that person has their feet up on the dashboard.
In a second test, they investigate Delayed Causality. S15, Ep2. Can a chimney be turned into a cannon? Making the climb would be highly visible and requires significant physical training.
All tests showed that cereal has superior values of calories , fats , sugars , and proteins compared to cardboard.
Furthermore, chemicals within the cardboard may be toxic. A flash-boil -powered cannon, built even with modern materials and techniques, was barely able to push a projectile out of the barrel.
A more modern pre-boiled, valve-triggered system, like those used in aircraft catapults , was able to project a cannonball a considerable distance, and required far less pressure than the MythBusters had originally projected.
Also see Holman Projector which worked on a similar principle. Jamie, Adam, Tory, and Grant all had their teeth checked by Kari.
At first Jamie was the one with the brownest teeth, not Adam. However, after hearing the news, he had his teeth bleached to make them white again.
After this, Adam did have the brownest teeth. The overall result, from best to worst: Grant, Tory, Adam, and finally Jamie before his bleaching.
For this to happen, the whirlpool would have to be significantly stronger than any maelstrom ever recorded. When tested at the appropriate scale, the whirlpool did not have any noticeable effect on a model container ship.
While the scale test did affect a model fishing trawler more visibly than the container ship, the most it did was buffet the model and knock it slightly off-course.
Even then, it was not enough to capsize the model, let alone sink it. A whirlpool can generate a vortex large enough to pull down a swimmer and, especially if combined with the effects of dizziness and disorientation which caused Adam to vomit after mere seconds , induce drowning.
The MythBusters only tested according to the most powerful maelstrom ever recorded, and did not determine the minimum size needed to submerge a swimmer.
A snowplow passing by at high speed can displace enough air on one side to flip over a passing car. Even a worst-case scenario—an unusually large plow passing by a light, top-heavy sports utility vehicle at highway speed — could not generate the air pressure needed to cause the SUV to even visibly tip.
Why does dropping Mentos into a bottle of Diet Coke create a geyser effect? Other active ingredients in the cascade-effect reaction include aspartame artificial sweetener , potassium benzoate preservative , and caffeine in the Diet Coke; and gum arabic and gelatin in the Mentos.
The ingredients seem to have a perfect compatibility with each other and, when mixed and added to the nucleation, creates a chemical reaction that forces the soda to release all of its dissolved carbon dioxide at once, thus causing a more violent eruption than carbonated water alone.
A stamp placed on the rotor of a helicopter can unbalance the spinning rotors enough to cause it to crash.
A stamp in a controlled scale test did not cause any changes to the helicopter rotor's rotation. The MythBusters immediately ramped up the test to the scale of 8, stamps, which destroyed the scale model helicopter.
The full-sized test also produced the same results, as the stamp did not cause a real helicopter to crash, and according to the pilot, did not cause any significant change in the way the helicopter flew.
A stamp placed on the tail rotor also did not cause any noticeable change. One can design an automobile sound system such that the bass can quickly shatter all the windows of the automobile.
While the large, diesel engine -powered subwoofer that Jamie and Adam built into a Mercedes-Benz D produced sound at dB SPL at 16 Hz a level comparable to those found in cars specially designed for loudness competitions , it caused the sunroof of the car to jar loose, allowing for the pressure of the sound waves to escape.
Because of this leakage, not to mention the fact that the forces behind the oscillation caused the woofer to break apart, the speaker system could not possibly create the intensity needed to cause all the windows to explode as the myth stated.
A best-case scenario would involve only one window failing, thus creating a path for the pressure to escape. A car will achieve a smoother ride on a rough outback road by being driven faster.
As far as driving on non-washboard roads, there was no solid conclusion due to a conflict of data. However, when they tested a " washboard " road, the Build Team were able to confirm the theory that driving at a higher speed will indeed cause the body of the car to float over the ridges: the wheels of a car oscillated wildly, but the car suspension allowed for a relatively smoother ride at high speed.
Adam first planted the latex on his own thumb to give it warmth and pulse and then found that licking the latex sample to simulate sweat was enough to fool the scanner.
This allegedly marked the very first time that particular lock had been broken. The neoprene suit did insulate Tory's body heat from his surroundings — until the suit itself warmed up.
This was inspired by a technique used by Dutch Schaefer Arnold Schwarzenegger to fool Predator thermal sensors. Like the neoprene suit, it only worked until the mud warmed up from body heat.
Also, Tory left behind mud tracks while attempting this, making him easier to track. Heating the room from the ceiling immediately set off the sensor, while heating the room from the ground did not.
However, the sensor was still sensitive enough to detect the difference between human body temperature and the ambient temperature.
They also attempted piping the heat in from below and then having Grant strip down to his boxers as close to naked as he dared in an attempt to emit exactly In a scene not shown in some versions of the episode, they found that the suit blocked the body heat, preventing the sensor from seeing the wearer.
However, a small breach in the suit around Tory's buttocks area triggered the sensor when pointed towards it. Despite that, though, he found he was able to beat the thermal camera by entering the room backwards.
Glass blocks out the longer wavelength infrared light used by thermal imaging systems. Kari and Grant were successfully able to hang a pane over the camera using a clamp and drop right into the room.
To test this, Kari made a Big Bird-like costume-cum-stealth suit out of a thick yellow rug, but the sensor was still able to pick up her movement.
Kari made a second suit made of the said material, but the alarm went off the instant she set foot in the room. Although it took Kari 20 minutes to cross a relatively short hallway, she moved slowly enough to stay below the detector's sampling threshold.
A thief can drill into a safe with a thermal lance , fill the safe with water, and detonate an explosive inside without damaging the items inside or prematurely activating the glass relocker.
Drilling into a safe using thermal rods takes far longer than the myth states. Also, the heat from the thermal rods completely destroyed the items inside.
Secondly, the safe was not watertight and had to be sealed from the inside to completely fill it with water.
Finally, though the explosion successfully dislodged the safe door, none of the items inside remained intact.
It was deemed plausible from historical precedent and police reports, though the MythBusters themselves could not replicate any of the conditions.
The myth was also tested by the BBC show Hollywood Science , which was able to replicate the scene using the same type of safe used in The Score.
Tesla's oscillator : Nikola Tesla invented a small steam-powered machine that, when attached to an object or building and tuned to vibrate at a certain frequency , can cause an earthquake-like effect on the object to which it is attached.
The MythBusters built several variations of Tesla's machine using modified jackhammers , as well as a specially designed computer-controlled electromechanical linear actuator provided by Grant.
Small-scale tests on metal bars produced mixed results, with the modified tools performing poorly, while the more finely tunable actuator produced significant vibrations in the bar.
A scale-model test with a model of Tesla's lab and miniature motor failed to produce any noticeable result. Finally, a full-scale test was attempted: the MythBusters attached the resonator to the side of the span of the Carquinez Bridge , a large truss bridge of a type today designed to withstand such vibrations, to see whether the entire bridge would be shaken.
The resonator could be tuned to the bridge's resonant frequency; it did produce a vibration, noticeable "hundreds of feet away", like "a big semitrailer truck cruising by", but not remotely of earthquake strength.
The MythBusters declared the myth busted. All lava lamp tests produced violent reactions, with the reactions differing depending on the lamp's design: When lava lamps with safety caps exploded, they vented their contents out through the top of the lamp because of the safety cap popping off as designed.
They then tested a bottle-capped lava lamp, which leaked due to a poor seal. Grant then blew the lava lamp up using a squirt of cold water from a spray bottle to induce thermal shock - and the explosion lodged a piece of glass deep into the ballistics gel dummy planted near the lamp.
With the combination of the violent explosion, glass shrapnel in the dummy, explicit warning labels including a notice not to heat the lamp with anything besides the provided bulb , and the recorded incident, the myth was deemed confirmed.
Once they tested the other containers, they ran a last test with a jumbo lava lamp, which exploded with enough force to pierce the dummy with numerous shards of glass.
The cans of beans tested exploded with force proportional to the size of the can. Larger cans explode more violently than smaller cans, especially since large cans do not have a weakened pop-open top, but the Build Team concluded that any can of beans on a stove is potentially lethal.
Though the can of potted meat exploded rather violently, the explosion did not have enough force to be deemed lethal. The jar of milk exploded violently, though not with a large amount of force.
The Build Team concluded that an exploding jar of milk could be lethal if a person happened to be standing over it. A piece of straw can penetrate all the way through a palm tree if propelled by hurricane -force winds.
Even firing at the tree while it was bent to increase the size of the pores in the surface of the tree at point blank range added no additional distance into the tree.
A piece of reed was tested as the sturdiest organic object that might be mistaken for a piece of straw.
At both ranges, the reed only managed to go about two inches into the tree. Even wind speeds faster than those ever recorded could not remove any of the feathers of a tethered chicken.
The whole bird would more likely be blown away completely. Polygraph tests indicate all living things share some form of interconnected consciousness.
Tests were done by connecting plants to a polygraph's galvanometer , and then employing actual and imagined harm upon the plants or upon others in the plant's vicinity.
The galvanometer showed some spurious readings showing some kind of reaction about one-third of the time , so a much more accurate EEG machine was used.
When Grant and Tory used a machine that dropped eggs randomly into boiling water, the plant had no reaction. Additionally, Tory's leukocytes had no reaction when Kari shocked him with a stungun.
The Dukes of Hazzard : A car can jump a significant distance using a pile of soil as a ramp and land with minimal damage or loss of momentum.
However, the car crashed nose-down and the front and engine were crumpled, busting the myth and the car. It is somewhat widely known that stunt cars are often heavily damaged by bigger jumps and must subsequently be scrapped see The General Lee.
Big Trouble in Little China : A lock can be broken by shooting it with handguns. The 9-mm pistol and the. Various movies: A lock can be broken by shooting it with shotgun slugs or high-powered rifle ammunition.
Both types of ammunition were able to disable the locks by completely obliterating them. However, the MythBusters note that this lock-busting method would be very dangerous in real life due to ricochet or spalling.
Because of this hazard, military and SWAT units use a special shotgun cartridge called a breaching round to break through doors. Goldfinger or Austin Powers in Goldmember : A car can be equipped with a discreet ejector seat.
A pneumatic ejector seat fitted into a boxy Toyota car seemed to fool most of the people who inspected it, and the seat successfully launched a test dummy out of the car.
However, the design of the car plays a huge role in concealability, which is why Jamie and Adam opted for a roomier, boxier car rather than one of the flashy and sleek sports cars often seen in spy movies.
Sports cars have windshields that extend partially over the front seats, making it difficult for an ejector seat to properly launch without hitting the frame.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom : A person can fall through layers of awnings and survive. Buster was broken into pieces during the fall, but "survived" his fall according to the shock sensors with less-than-lethal but still serious "injuries".
Tory then demonstrated the movie method of using pre-cut awnings and safety wires after Adam was prevented by the show's insurance from doing it himself.
Underworld : One can escape through a floor by shooting through it in a circular pattern. A fully automatic MP5 failed to break through the support beams underneath the floor in any reasonable amount of time, even with the assistance of a gauge shotgun.
Tory also had to fire all of his rounds of ammunition to even come close to breaking through. Finally, due to the close proximity of the shots to the shooter, flying debris and the possibility of ricochets makes this method extremely dangerous.
The Count of Monte Cristo : A sword can cut off the blade of another sword. The team tested impacts between various types of swords.
A genuine Japanese-constructed katana sliced through a replica stainless-steel sword, and also broke a genuine sword through stress fracturing.
The katana bent a rapier until it snapped, but did not cut through the blade. When a Claymore struck the katana, the katana flexed but did not break.
A Viking sword then severely nicked the claymore. In the end, though some swords did break, none of them were actually 'cut' by the impacting sword.
Tory storms out at the end of the special and says, "You guys 'really' know how to ruin a movie", to which Adam replies, "That's confirmed.
If a cable snaps, it can cut a person in two as seen in the movie Ghost Ship. The MythBusters took the test even further by adding a smaller cable at the end of larger one to create a "whip" effect, and even looped a cable around the pig itself.
None of these methods could cut the pig by the pretensioned cable's inertia alone. The pig was cut in half only when Adam tied a cable around it before tightening the cable.
Also, after making inquiries with almost every safety organization imaginable, the MythBusters were unable to find any concrete evidence of a person being cut in half by a snapped cable.
Sounds can be recovered from old pottery, called archaeoacoustics. Based on The X-Files episode " Hollywood A. The MythBusters were unable to recover any recognizable sound from the pot using a record player with a glass needle to prevent scratching the clay.
Even with professional audio enhancement and the most advanced sound systems available, they were unable to recover any discernible sounds from the straw-made grooves on the pots.
Once the MythBusters constructed a launch tube and perfected shearing off the cylinder's valve, the cylinder shot entirely through their constructed cinder block wall and damaged the solid concrete wall behind it.
The MythBusters were also aware of recorded instances of such a thing happening. A second attempt resulted in the boat barely making half the distance, and barely registering any speed at all.
The team incorrectly concluded that gunpowder has a greater energy density than gasoline and proceed to test three historical designs by Huygens , Cayley and Paine for gunpowder engines, none of which worked for more than one cycle; the team could not find a practical or reliable way to feed the gunpowder into the engines without having them backfire and ignite all the powder, most likely because black powder is not a liquid and therefore is not transported as easily; also, gunpowder cannot be ignited while mixed in with liquid even flammable lubricating oil , so it must be dry for the engine to work.
They were also unable to convert a modern lawnmower engine to run on gunpowder, even with gunpowder inserted directly into the ignition chamber.
A sword can cut a machine gun in two spinoff of Sword vs. The team heated the barrel from a. The team then rapidly heated and cooled the barrel to make it more brittle, but when hit by the sword again, it shattered instead of being cut.
Finally, the team tried to cut a thinner Thompson submachine gun barrel, but the sword only bent it.
Bracing a windshield can keep it from shattering spinoff of Rough Road Driving. Bracing a window with a hand was unsuccessful in preventing a window from being shattered by a rock or a fired BB.
A Hybrid Rocket can use salami as fuel. Using salami as a rocket fuel can create high amounts of thrust with the right nozzle.
Readings from the force gauge proved that salami did in fact generate much more thrust than just the released nitrous oxide alone, though they do admit that the nitrous oxide output alone could have launched the rocket, as may have been the case with the original launch.
It is more fuel efficient to drive a pickup truck with its tailgate down, rather than up from Tailgate Up vs.
Tailgate Down. Using a calibrated fuel flow gauge, Adam and Jamie first re-busted the tailgate up vs.
A plastic mesh tailgate provides superior fuel efficiency compared to the standard metal tailgate. Again using a calibrated fuel flow gauge, Adam and Jamie proved that the mesh was the most efficient way to configure a pickup truck.
The fans stated that the truck mesh was the worst tailgate to use, which the MythBusters proved wrong. The heat generated from the welding tool was hot enough to cause the plastic lighter to melt and release its fuel which ignited, causing a small explosion.
A lighter was left in a running laundry dryer but suffered no significant damage and therefore did not explode.
