    The "Mythbusters" had a bit of an accident.

    Well, it was much more than a bit of one. They were testing a homemade cannon at a local bomb range in Alameda, CA when for whatever reason it ended up firing at a neighborhood. What's most amazing to me is that even after traveling a distance of some 3 MILES, the cannon ball still had enough velocity to go through a house, bounce off other houses, and then end up inside a minivan. There was a woman and her kid at home at the time and they got really lucky that it didn't hit them. Crazy story.

    I'm still waiting to see which one of them gets seriously hurt first.

    Some of the things they do are so dangerous! I'm surprised they are all still walking.

    They're what you call experts. Don't try this at home.

    Second time I think news of this circulated. Obviously get better places to experiment and repair their accident.
