MythBusters Apologize for Cannonball Experiment Gone Wrong

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

On Tuesday, a cannonball was launched during the filming of the show, but it missed its intended target and landed in a neighborhood.

The cannonball shot through the door of a home, damaging the inside and exiting through the back, only to land in a minivan.

MythBuster hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman visited the damaged home in Dublin to apologize to the homeowners.

“This is the worst we can imagine happening,” said Adam Savage. “I have kids of my own, I have a house of my own. I can’t imagine how angry I would be to have this happen to it.”

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department says the TV show has used the firing range close to 100 times before without any problems.

The stars of the show say they won’t be firing any cannonballs in the area again.

MythBusters Stunt Gone Wrong Damages Homes

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

DUBLIN, Calif. — A projectile launched from the Alameda County firing range at Camp Parks in Dublin during a taping for the show MythBusters damaged a home and a car Tuesday afternoon.

The incident occurred between 4:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. A witness told ABC7 that the MythBusters crew was using a cannon and fired what appeared to be a cannonball. The witness said the projectile went through a house and hit a car.

No one was injured.

Alameda County Sheriff’s spokesperson J.D. Nelson would not confirm what the projectile was.

Earlier Tuesday, the show’s official Twitter account retweeted a tweet by Grant Imahara, one of the hosts, saying they would be working with “heavy artillery.” Both tweets have since been deleted.

So, being in the Philippines I have seen some interesting things. On thing I see what this picture at the entrance of a few banks and that the guards are very heavily arm with pistol grip shotguns or AR-15 with enough ammo to start private war. The picture there is kind of like what the security guards are like.



I have seen that the Philippine National Police are very armed also. I have only seen them carrying AR-15 and nothing more and about 300 or so round of .223 (5.56x45mm).



Update: Dec 9, 2011

So we went to the City Hall in the Bacoor and i seen this… found it funny also.
