Re: MYTHBUSTERS 10th Anniversary Season

Gotta say, watching Jaime race across the water on a bike was one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Even if it was nothing but sheer momentum, it was still impressive as hell. And definitely not what I was expecting after seeing all their other attempts to either run or drive across water.

But then I guess if you have something that can slap the water hard and fast enough, like the tread of a motorcycle tire, you'd be able to create enough resistance to stay on top for awhile. At least that's my guess as to what's going on.

As for the parachute myth, I kinda wish they didn't give themselves that 3 hour limit. It would have been interesting to see if they could have come up with a design that worked using only the items in a single hotel room. I'm sure the drop still wouldn't have been survivable, but the results would have been a little better, I think.
