Summary
Stinky car: The story of a used car so rank that it couldn't be resold--it was found with a dead body in it--prompts the guys into replicating the myth as accurately, and legally, as possible. Then, the MythBusters try to discover if they can turn an ordinary household drainpipe into a raccoon rocket launcher. Alcatraz escape: Jamie and Adam retrace the steps of the only prisoners to escape Alcatraz. Could their homemade raft have kept them afloat in the violent San Francisco Bay waters? Learn if an ordinary stud finder can be used to detect victims of mind control experiments and whether or not a duck's quack really echoes. Chicken gun: Did NASA really test the strength of their windshields by firing chickens at them? Find out who wins in the battle of plane versus poultry. Plus, watch as Jamie and Adam go inside the human body to explore the myth of the woman who claimed she swallowed an octopus egg--then gave birth to an eight-legged offspring!
