EdenLiesObscured: 2CountyFairs: One test that I disagreed with was if the Phantom's ring could leave an imprint in someone's forehead. They stretched pigskin over a skull and had a robot arm punch it at varying strength. It never left an impression and it actually shattered the skull. So to them, myth busted.

However, that doesn't seem right to me. I've seen someone take a line drive off of their knee while playing third and the baseball left the impression of the stitches on his knee with no broken bones. Sure, the ball is softer, but it seems that if a ball can leave an impression, so can a ring.

My unscientific observation was that the Phantom ring had the image indented/sunken into the ring. Conversely, a baseball's stitches protrude from the surface. That should make the difference, right?

I used to have a pinky ring with 5 diamonds in it. Had to pawn that phuqer...anyway, when my oldest was 3 years old, I asked him if he wanted some diamonds. He said, "sure.", so I'd pop him in the forehead with the ring. The imprints of the diamond would be there.

/he always said, "sure."
//I could only get 2.5 out of the 5 diamonds to show up.

bungle_jr: NutznGum: Jamie is gay, right?

/not that there's anything wrong with that

a quick googling shows he's been married (to a woman, judging by the name eileen) since 1989. that does not alway disprove homosexuality though

On the next Mythbusters, can a married man still be gay? We'll blow a few up with C4 and find out!
