    Mythbusters crew shoots cannonball through a HOUSE and a van as stunt goes terribly wrong | Mail Online

    MythBusters stunt sends cannonball flying through Dublin home | www.ktvu.com



    Remember, they are experts. Don't try this at home. And don't be at home when they try this. I would love to see the Mythbusters video of that one.

    Remember black powder guns and stuff aren't as dangerous as modern firearms.
    From here your day is bound to go uphill, maybe.

    The "Mythbusters" constantly repeat "don't try this at home" on their weekly television program. But maybe some tricks they should not even try. The hosts and staff of the well-liked program terminated a cannonball Tues that travelled into a community in Dublin, Calif. The event brought on much property destruction. Fortunately, there were no injuries brought on by the incident. The program may face many repercussions from what happened. I've read this here: Mythbusters misfire causes damage in California neighborhood.

    He may get a little more than just a mini van on this one.I think the fines here are going to be substantial.And being California,someone will try to file criminal charges,which will raise the fines some more.

    Wonder what the sponsors will have to say?

    But they should man up and run this episode.Show that even the pros can make some really stupid mistakes.

    He said residents should have known a dangerous experiment was being staged. He also hinted at firing back with a lawsuit. 'MythBusters' hosts: Sorry about that cannonball

    Really!? C'mon! this lawsuit happy nation has to get itself together. Have to say, if the Mythbusters had punched a hole in my house, and no one was hurt....as long as there insurance fixed it, i'd have welcomed them into my house, laughed about it, got assurances that they wold point canons in a different direction and gone on with the day. This was a teaching moment.

    Crazy part about this. Was watching the show last week and I noted in one of the wide angle shots that there where a bunch of houses realtively close by. I was thinking, boy those neighbours must love all the high pressure shock waves that come out of there!?

    there was a episode once where they were driving a car via remote control to see if it could go under a semi trailer and keep driving with the top being sheared off. It did, but the brakes failed and it hit a berm way down ways at a high rate of speed and launched over the fenced in area they were filming and cleared a tree and they really did seem like they had no idea of what was behind the berm and fence. luckily, it was a open unused field, but still had other buildings near by. It was fricken hillarious, it launched like the Dukes of Hazard and their faces were as if they just crapped them selves.

    After watching the different new reports on the web, it went through over a half dozen walls. That is crazy, I want one.
    This thing had slow inertia alright, wow, I would like to know just how far it went, the neighbor lady said they hear the bomb testing facility every so often but it is a ways away.

    Doesn't Dublin have some sort of law against discharging firearms within city limits?
