That is Kari, she is an beautiful women. Her artwork is really amazing if you've ever seen it.

[image from home.ptd.net too old to be available]

Clearly Kari.

I'll be damned. I check this thread because MythBusters rules -- and damned if I don't find a pic of who I believe to be an old co-worker from Mississippi.

user0101, you should remember me from the username. My email address is the same as my username at gmail, except gmail is not working at the moment. Fire me off an email if you see this!

PopeD: I have only a vague recollection of the episode, but when they needed to cast some butt molds for the "sucked to the airplane toilet seat" myth they recruited some hottie from the production staff/office/support/itern type whose exact name and role escapes me at the moment.

Kari worked for M5 before becoming part of Mythbusters. The 'sucked to an airplane toilet seat' myth was on an early episode, when it was just Jamie and Adam on camera. The butt is in fact Kari's. Fap away.

I stand corrected! The memory IS really going!

Proof right on the Official Website: "Jamie needed a 3-D scan of a person's backside, and Kari had the right ... well, you know. Basically, she was in the right place at the right time."

/Upgrading Likes Kari to Loves Kari
/Apologies to all for addiing first case of inaccurate info to the Intarweb!

I do believe you may have been distracted by the visual.

Mythbusters article on FARK. Pics of Kari. Kari is an artist.

Previous FARK thread states "creative people more likely to have sex".

I like where FARK is heading today.

I thought Scotty was very cute.. it was all the tatoos and the blowtorches around her that interfered, but she was always smiling and soft-spoken. Also I think she mentioned she used to be a shool teacher, that's kinda cool.
 
2005-11-30 02:53:42 PM  
punto, if I recall what I read, Scottie taught high school metal shop.

Jesus Christ, people. When did it become okay to turn photoshop Onion/Mythbuster threads into discussion of boob size good looking women, etc.? Take it to the Personals Forum or whatever. Sheesh.
 
2005-11-30 03:42:42 PM  
Wowen with tattoos look like cheap dumb whores.
 
2005-11-30 03:55:36 PM  
Hmmmm. Kari's from San Francisco, she's an artist, single... Is she a lesbian?????

/not that there's anything wrong with that.
//in fact it's pretty hot!
 
2005-11-30 03:58:12 PM  
At the risk of appearing a bit dildoic, I must say that anyone who preferes Scotti over Kari is a stupid faggy dickhead wiennie-baby, Not to say anything bad or nuthin.

Oh grow up, lots of guys are on Fark, guys like chicks, Guys specifically like fine-ass redhead chicks who look like the girl next door they always wanted to screw but never did.
/or so I am told

Take your hate elsewhere. This thread is about love.

Love for Kari Byron.

Not the creepy kind, the admiration and respect for a serious R&D engineer kind.

Exactly! notice how Kari has no tattoos.

I was stating a fact not hate.

i am married to an engineer. he too loves to pick apart the show, and i like the show because it's accessible enough for the non-engineer (modern languages major here, kids) to actually understand. plus throw in that the shop is only a few minutes from my crib, that's pretty dope.

but dammit if mr. husband watches the show and every other word is "damn that Kari is one hot chick."

so here's a vote for grant! drop it like it's hot, grant! DROP IT!

/i'll break you in half, you enginerd.
//hated the soda bottle rocket pack thing. that gig sucked.
///no beat off material with kari in the water? sorry guys/husband.
 
2005-11-30 04:51:52 PM  
YAY MYTHBUSTERS!

I'd go gay for Adam and Jamie.

/Well maybe jamie
//nah, both of them. Geeks are hot.
 
2005-11-30 05:12:16 PM  
Lots of Onion links recently...smells like sponsor.
 
2005-11-30 05:14:49 PM  
I love episodes that feature Adam and Jamie doing the bulk of the mythbuster OR at the very least, dealing with the better of two (or three) myths. Their chemistry is far better than the build team's.

So what the hell is up with giving Adam and Jamie crappy myths? They get to deal with the steel toe amputation while the other guys get the bottle rocket jet pack? I feel gyped.

Not to mention, I feel insulted in the new episodes when they flash the "Warning: Science Content" scene.

I like the science content, but the more and more the show continues, the more and more the show panders to idiots, teenagers, and ADD sufferers.

Go back to the original format!
 
2005-11-30 05:17:23 PM  
We need to come with a myth that requires Kari to strip off.

Let's see...is it REALLY true that long-distance swimmers need grease applied to stay warm? Does specialized swimwear keep you warmer? Or are you just as cold as when swimming naked?

You could have a viewer contest for the guy to apply the grease.

I remember when The Onion was actually clever.

"I remember when The Onion was actually clever."

Yeah, that was a good few weeks wasn't it.

/just kidding, still like the onion sometimes
//sometimes
 
2005-11-30 05:53:00 PM  
I guess I need to watch Mythbusters again. When did they get more people on the show?

Naked Man don't degrade your mom like that. I'm sure her tattoos are very tasteful.
 
2005-11-30 05:55:38 PM  
I agree with erewhon. How about segments on joggers nipple?
 
2005-11-30 06:03:23 PM  
Kari = extremely bangable

Her art, however, is disturbing.
 
2005-11-30 06:20:25 PM  
Okay Kari is the best part of the show.

But can you come up with better names than Savage and Hyneman? I don't think so. I mean it's Savage, which is cool. And Heiney-man, which is hilarious. And it's more funny because he looks like a walrus.

I would watch a Mythbusters channel. It's that good.

\Just commenting because kari might read it.
\\And then her boyfriend would beat me up
\\\Which would be worth it
\\\\Even though I'm married
\\And my wife would get half my stuff.
\\Google me Kari!

It wasn't a deadly bathroom doorknob?

Oh...wrong Mr Savage.

\But really, would you lick this man's doorknob?

that man already looks like he was hit with a sack of doorknobs...

/go make me a SAMMICH!
//no lettuce
///i'm not a wabbit!
////catch all the movie references?
 
2005-12-01 12:15:56 AM  
oh, and hell yes Kari makes me happy in funny places :)
 
2005-12-01 02:33:55 AM  
Of the females on the show, I will agree that Kari is the best looking one. But since I prefer men in my fantasies Hyneman is my choice. I bet the whiskers could be fun.... and Savage is annoying.
 
2005-12-01 03:31:44 AM  
pguy40: I agree with erewhon. How about segments on joggers nipple?

The fact that women's nipples sometimes become noticeably erect, is not a myth. It's a fact. And yes, we men do notice. We try not to notice, but we do notice.

Kari's hottness may be seen co-starring in this two part vid from 2003. (SFW)

kari_byron One Mythbuster is a bit of a ladies' man. He keeps hair gel in his glove box so he can slick up on the road.

That'd be Tori.

Another brings tech equipment catalogs into the bathroom with him.

Adam.

One we will never play practical jokes on because he has a secret serum that can induce projectile vomiting with one drop into your lunch.

Jamie

Finally, one formerly made public appearances as a gay robot for a famous space movie made in Marin.

Graaant.
