Have any of you seen the TV program myth busters?

 

It is one of the few programs on TV that I will admit I watch.

 

Well The idea is someone posts a myth and others try to solve it.

 

Conclusions of the experiments

 

By the end of each episode, each myth is rated Busted, Plausible, or Confirmed.

 

Busted

 

The myth's results cannot be replicated via either the described parameters nor reasonably exaggerated ones. Often, when a myth is declared Busted, the team will try to see what would be required to replicate the result of the myth, regardless of the facts within the myth itself. This is commonly referred to in the show as "the MythBusters way".

 

Plausible

 

Plausible is given under two circumstances:

 

* The myth's results can only be produced by expanding the parameters within a reasonable (and realistic) margin, or alternatively, if the circumstances needed to replicate the myth are impractical, but still realistically possible. The MythBusters team members sometimes need to set additional parameters that may or may not have been part of the original myth, or they change one or two existing parameters out of practicality and/or available resources, but not to the point of making it completely unrealistic given the circumstances surrounding the myth.

* If there is no documentation of the myth occurring, yet the MythBusters were still able to duplicate it very closely to how the myth was described (such as the myth that states that pirates wore eye patches for enhanced night vision).

 

The Plausible rating was first used in the second season, but seems to have fallen out of favor somewhat in later seasons, especially in cases where the team could replicate the results within the parameters even if there are no documented incidents replicating the myth, such as "Exploding Tire of Death" in Season 5.

 

Confirmed

 

The MythBusters are able to recreate or closely recreate the myth's purported outcome with the described circumstances. A Confirmed myth is usually corroborated with documented evidence of actual occurrences. The term "True" was used in the first season.

 

Other

 

Occasionally, the MythBusters give more than one designation to separate aspects of a single myth. In "Bullets Fired Up", they tested whether a bullet fired straight up can fall and kill the shooter or innocent bystanders. They gave the myth all three designations: "Busted", "Plausible", and "Confirmed," based on different circumstances and technicalities they encountered. Other alternate determinations have been used on occasion where results have defied any of the three existing classifications.

 

 

Well why don't we start any one got any myths for us to bust?

...:D

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

(Jules Winnfield)
