You beat me to it. Although they did find that at a close enough distance pissing on an electric fence can do damage.

Why would you need to be on the tracks to pee?  Doesn't everyone just go to the ends of the platform?

On a serious note -- if that guy is what passes for a model these days -- I should be making a shiat ton of money because even I look better than him.

Know how many times I have had to assist tourists when they got on the train going the wrong direction?

Usually around 75th avenue in Queens, they will ask people "so when does this stop at lexington and 63rd?"

I don't begrudge them though, usually just smile and tell them to get off and take the train going the other direction.

Mythbusters also said lighters won't explode in hot cars, and that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the failures in their rigor.

I actually feel bad for them, cause the amount of shiat they have to deal with from the internets.

At the end of the tailgate up/down/removed MPG test, they just said something like "OK internet, we've done the tests, and if you don't agree with the methodology or results, well, then just drive whichever way makes you happy"

Well fair enough. I am constantly screaming at my TV about their lack of proper scientific method. But in this case IIRC I thought that they demonstrated reasonably well that pee does not stream cohesively. If you disagree I would certainly encourage you to perform your own experiments. ;)

There is a lot about that episode I didn't agree with.. for one the liquid came out of the dummy with only gravity to drain it and fell as bunch of droplets.. I argue if some one had a really full bladder as many drunk people do and had some pressure behind it would come out as a steady stream and close the circuit.


Arguing with the episodes is half the fun of it though..

Granted, scientific rigor does insist that as many variables are accounted for as possible, but... do you really suspect that there's enough variance in disposable lighter designs across brands that it would make a difference?

There's an emergency switch to cut power to the third rail that's accessible to the public. It should have been pulled as soon as he was down off the platform.

This. I kinda want to say "Then Mythbusters is obviously for me, not for you all." I like it. It's fun. I just wish my kid would stop going "Hey remember when..." for things that happened on the show.

She's a lovely girl (in word and deed), but she's definitely more of a girly-girl. I would've shanked a hobo to watch Mythbusters at her age, but it's just not her thing.

UPDATE: MTA spokesperson Charles Seaton writes, "These switches are located in areas that are NOT accessible to subway customers. They are not on the station platform." And they're not accessible to the token booth clerk, either. Seaton declined to elaborate on their exact location, for obvious reasons.

Can you tell me where this is?

Cause I live in NYC, and take the subway, and can't recall ever seeing one?

Not saying it's not there, but now I am curious.

I'd imagine that while a really good safety measure, there's be a lot of shenanigans.  Much like in the 70's and 80's the emergency brakes were routinely pulled as a prank.

I've never witnessed it though, so that's good.

Just recently, there was an article on the buses, and the battery access panel.  Apparently people would open it while the bus was parked, and shut it down.
Resulting in a 2 hour delay because a mechanic would have to come out and restart the bus.

Yes, there is.

I have personally seen (or cleaned up the remnants) of 3 of the clear plastic "El-cheapo" lighters that have exploded in hot cars. Bic lighters are quality, but the generics can (and do) explode. Not even in direct sunlight either. I had one explode while in my console.

/BTW,. I love Mythbusters. Don't get me wrong. I watch it quite often. The only reason that particular test sticks in my head is because it has happened to me, and I was a bit miffed that they hadn't considered the fact that generic lighters wouldn't be near as durable as a Bic.

They invite, as in ASK FOR, correspondence regarding the myths that they test. In fact it is the core of many of the episodes that they have done.

I love that they will go back and "re-test" with different variables if enough people write in.

That's what it is all about, and I dig that.

I don't feel "bad" for them at ALL.
