Usually they’re busting myths, but this time they busted a house – and a minivan.
Mythbusters is a popular television show in which scientists – led by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman — try to figure out if certain “myths” are true.
For instance, there is an idiom about someone who is clumsy being like “a bull in a china shop.”
The Mythbusters crew filled a shop with china and brought in several 1,800-pound bulls to see whether that “myth” was actually true.*
A big part of their show is that they often perform outrageous scientific stunts, like blowing up things or setting things on fire to prove or disprove the myths.
