Summary
Exploding toilet: Jamie and Adam set out to disprove the legend of the exploding commode. See how Buster, unwitting crash test dummy, manages in a compromised position with gasoline and gunpowder! Next, find out if you stay drier by running--or walking--in the rain. Then, learn the truth behind magic ice bullets, which some say can kill without leaving evidence. Cell phone destroys gas station: The sign at the pump reads, "No Cell Phones," but can this little device really trigger a massive explosion? The MythBusters get their hands on a pair of silicon implants to find out if they'll explode at high-altitude. And, they test the myth that modern CD-ROM drives are so fast, they can actually shatter ordinary compact discs. Barrel of bricks: Jamie and Adam use basic physics to debunk the story of the construction worker who was allegedly buried under 500 pounds of bricks. Find out just how dangerous it is to answer the call of nature on the electrified third rail of a train track and whether or not an eel skin wallet can erase your credit card information
