    For varying degrees of entertainment, look up the Mythbusters fan 
forum.  These people are so stupid it's frightening, but fortunately all 
they do is watch TV and worship the all-knowing Mythbusters team.  I went 
on there one time, after watching a particularly bad show, and asked why 
the show was so sloppy and obviously wrong so often.

    To sum up, they kicked me off for daring to question the almighties.

    This despite my biggest complaint being their failed attempt to 
replicate a Dukes of Hazzard style car jump with a remote control car. 
The MB morons (show and forum) concluded that it was impossible.  They 
liked it not one bit when I posted the Youtube video of Ken Block jumping 
his Subaru 25' farther than their 'impossible' distance.

    To most people, that would call into question the amount of "Busting" 
going on.
