Mythbusters cannonball!

The Mythbusters show–which relies heavily on blowing things up for ratings, I mean skepticism–aimed a cannonball too high and it sailed into a neighbourhood: “Mythbusters apologize for cannonball.”

One day after a cannonball experiment went awry in a Bay Area suburb, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of Discovery Channel’s popular science show said Wednesday they were headed to meet with families affected by the incident.

No injuries were reported, but the 30-pound cannonball flew 700 yards off course from a police firing range, bounced off a roof and ripped through another home in Dublin before settling in a nearby van. While Savage and his team are still investigating the incident, he said the cannon involved in the experiment was aimed too high.

The culprits were the other team: Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara.

P.S. Does anyone else ever wonder why we almost never see the two teams together?
