Mythbusters Morning

MythbustersWe’re having a lazy morning on the couch watching Mythbusters, which is a show I watch only irregularly but love. One of their pithier taglines is, “I reject your reality and substitute my own.”

Where else would you hear the terms:

“He’s gonna die… but it’s gonna look great.”
“They’ve got themselves a rocket kind of thing.”
“Well, hopefully that’s our job, to strap rockets onto everything!”
“When in doubt, lubricate.”
“See, science is fun!”
“I think that was one of the most destructive things I’ve ever done. That was cool!”
“It’s not a myth. We’re just idiots.”
“Remember, don’t try this at home. We’re what you call ‘experts’.”

This morning they were:

  • Pancaking a car between two semi-trucks.
  • Testing the hygiene properties of vodka.
  • Launching a person into the air on compressed-air bottle rockets.
  • Smashing toes inside steel-toed boots.

They’re having way too much fun. I wonder if they’re taking applications for a logistics manager?

    Well then, in the spirit of myth busting: Adam’s quote is actually from a really, really bad 80′s fantasy movie called The Dungeonmaster, and has always been something of an inside joke line for gamers to drop on Mundanes.

    “Well there’s your problem, right there”

    Said when damned near anything goes wrong. I love mythbusters.
