Well, it looks like we may have to take Mythbusters' conclusions with large grain of salt from now on. Dear old MIT managed to replicate a "myth" that the Mythbusters had "busted"

What was the myth in question?

Archimedes Death Ray!

Ah, makes me miss the good old days at the 'tute.


Yeah, I used to like watching mythbusters but that was largely due to the attention they paid to building their contraptions. I'm sure they have actual engineers crunching numbers and figuring out what they're doing and the hosts are largely there to be entertaining, but I do recall often rolling my eyese at their approach to the myths they were busting.

Still though, IMO, any show that encourages people to think about myths a little more closely is a good thing (especially given the current political climate and some politician's inability to distinguish myth from fact)
