MythBusters Misfire Sends Cannonball Bounding Into Neighborhood – Popular Mechanics

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman have set off dozens, if not hundreds, of controlled explosions and fired myriad ballistics at a bomb disposal range in Dublin, Calif., while shooting episodes of MythBusters. But yesterday, one went dangerously awry.

The MythBusters fired what the San Francisco Chronicle is calling a “cantelope-sized cannonball” from a homemade cannon, attempting to hit large water containers. The cannonball missed the target and bounded completely out of the test range into a residential neighborhood.

Amateurs. Iff’n you’re gonna talk about cannonballs, you should either hire Craig as a consultant, or failing that, John.
