I like the show and both avatars.

I especially enjoyed the recent show in which it was demonstrated that talking on a cell phone while driving can be more dangerous than drinking and driving.

At first I thought it was foolish...then I realized....hey, I'm foolish.

Only catch a few minutes of it here and there when I'm wandering room to room, but obviously you have to stop and watch while they are disproving the "killer kleenex box" myth.

I feel so much safer now.

That's how I got hooked on National Public Radio.
Once while driving, they did a "live" story where they were in the process of artifically inseminating an elephant at a zoo. The description was priceless.

"Well, we gave Marge a large bushel of her favorite snack treats to keep her preoccupied (chicken wings in el diablo sauce). So let's take this hose and shove, I mean insert it into Marges' who who.

Marge: PHHFFFTTT!
Zoo guy: Steady there Marge. Okay, she gone back to her chicken wings.....

God, and this stuff in ALL FREE FOR THE LISTENING


2nd runner up was the guy who had the cat who hadn't come down from this tree for 7 years.

Guy: He likes it up there. It's a real big spreading tree, and I just bring him his food. Here he come now.

Cat: hey, how's it goin'

but a lot of times they dont inquire about the science behind their proposed demonstartions. They just take one way of doing things (and if it involves blowing **** up) they go for that one to the exclusion ofall others.
Like "splitting the arrow robin hood style" they only had to find some film of a few circus acts who did precisely that for a living.
I find that they declare "myths busted" without controlled experimentation with other means of accomplishing their intended result.

They certainly do blow things up a lot- but then again...this is a television show!

I think they adhere (mostly) to the scientific method. They are careful to take measurements and recreate the situation so that it may be tested against a measurement.

But then again, I'll admit it...(it's a shocker!) I'm not a scientist, so I could be wrong. When you look it it, they don't try their experiements more than once (if I remember right)- but maybe that's for time's sake. Its only an hour long show!
