I agree with a lot of that as I usually end up skipping through most of the show.

Wow I hope the show doesn't stay down too long... I'm a hardcore myth busters fan :D :lol:
I'm pretty surprised this happened because I always thought that they went a bit over-board on safety with most things... Guess not :D

similar incident on a smaller scale:

The above happened with a streamlined supersonic projectile but stuff leaving the barrel of a spudgun can also be dangerous, be aware of what your projectiles may hit and be cautious about firing at high angles.
