^Well, yes, but Mythbusters standard practice is that once they debunk that a myth could work given the described parameters, they then try to find out what would be required to replicate the results. Which often requires going to such obviously impractical lengths that it just reinforces the absurdity of the myth.
But they weren't trying to replicate the results of the myth. The results of the myth was the guy getting busted before he could even finish the parachute, which means even if they were ignoring the actual myth and instead just trying to see if building a parachute would work, the 3-hour limit was irrelevant.
