Chicken Gun. It seems that one of the things people test for when they test planes is if a plane can handle a bird strike in the windows. So it was a small surprise that when a letter was received it seemed that the windows kept getting smashed. Apparently after a small investigation, it was found that the testers were using frozen chickens instead of thawed chickens to test. Did it make a difference?
After repeated tests, Adam and Jamie found they weren't using glass that had been rated for bird strikes, but in the tests that they ran, it made no difference at all! So they set up a metal plate and shot some chickens at it, and from a pure velocity standpoint, it made no difference there either. The thawed birds took the same amount of time to impart their velocity as the frozen ones. Busted.
Octopus Egg Pregnancy. Who hasn't worried about swallowing an octopus egg while you're out scuba diving? If not an octopus egg, than how about a frog egg or a snake egg or any other egg? If not, why not? You don't want the little critter growing to maturity in your stomach, do you? Have no fear, it seems that this all seems to be a true myth, likely based on tapeworms or something that can survive in the acid of the stomach. Your normal animals would be eaten right up in the digestive acids. Busted.
Killer Washing Machine. You've waited too long for the laundry again, so you shove it all into one load, but it doesn't fit. So you stand on the washer to stomp it in. But you mistakenly turn it on, so it starts moving with you in it. Then you spill the bleach and the baking soda and the dog pees on the concoction, making a minor explosion that makes it all worse, and, well, you end up dead. Any truth to it? Not a lick.
The machine couldn't even hold the alleged 50 pounds of clothes, much less a person standing on it. Adam and Jamie had to rig the machine with a motor from an electric car to get it going with Buster standing in the tub, and then get it to tip over and then the couldn't even get any sort of explosion with dog pee involved. Busted.
