Re: Heads up! MYTHBUSTERS season premiere tonight at 9 Eastern!

^Yes, exactly. It would probably have eased the weight on his chest if they'd rested the wrapping on the ground, but they had to be able to reach under it to put the final layer on, and then they had to move it outside and lift it.

I'm tempted to propose a revisit; when they said "There's no way to use bubble packaging to survive a 35-foot drop," I wondered, "What about a parachute?" Though 35 feet probably isn't enough height to enable a parachute to fill and decelerate someone.

Now, maybe if the bubbles were filled with helium...
