Put simply, this episode is vintage, explosive MythBusters. Adam and Jamie have unfinished business from their Shark Week special, where they shot and then exploded a scuba tank. But they've always wondered if a ruptured cylinder â€” carefully aimed â€” can really cause the massive damage some people claim. Meanwhile, Tori, Grant and Kari go back in time to test some prototypes from the past. They all sound highly dangerous, and they probably are ... After all, they're tinkering with engines fueled by gunpowder!
Returning to the most controversial myths. More past experiments to see if their original answer was genuine or bogus. So Stop Writing Us!
Can a small, disposable butane lighter suddenly ignite with the force of several sticks of dynamite? The Gang tries to light a lighter on fire by hitting it with a golf club and trying to light it with sparks from a torch like tool. And the gang tries to shoot down some popular gunslinger myths. By seeing if it is possible if you can shoot off 5 shots from a magnum before a coin can hit the ground.

Just when you think Adam and Jamie have tested every gun legend in history, they come up with three more myths. In an urban shootout, could a criminal's bullet have hit and then jammed the empty chamber of a policeman's revolver? Saving Private Ryan might have been based on fact but what about the scene where one sniper kills another by shooting straight down the enemy's gun scope? And assuming two antique bullets once hit midair in a Civil War battle, is it even remotely possible those two bullets fused together? In the meantime, Kari, Grant and Tori go to great lengths to see whether humankind's first and simplest tool â€” the hammer â€” could be far more dangerous than you think

Is it true that vodka can cure the pain of a jellyfish sting? There are screams, torture and tentacles! .
