2012 Season:

Duct Tape Island Can a pallet of duct tape help you survive on a deserted island?

Fire vs. Ice Can a fire extinguisher hold off a flamethrower? Can a fleet of cars kick up enough dust to blind a surveillance drone?

Square Wheels Can a vehicle run as well on square wheels as it does on round ones? Can two cars stuck nose-to-nose really do the maneuvers shown in the film Date Night?

Swinging Pirates Can the swinging-cage rescue in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest really be done? Can an oil drum filled with methanol work as a high speed go kart?

Battle of the Sexes Are men or women better at driving? Are men or women better at reading facial emotions? Are men or women better at grilling? Are men or women better at map-reading? Are men or women better at packing the car for a trip?

Driving in Heels Does a drivers choice of footwear affect driving performance? Does a full bladder pose as much of a driving hazard as being legally intoxicated? Can superglue be used to turn a room upside down? Can superglue restrain a driver as well as a seat belt does during a collision?

Revenge of the Myth They revisited the myths Fireworks Man and Bird Balance. Can a water heater turned on its side be used as a cannon? Can excavators be used to thread a needle or pour a gla** of wine?

Bouncing Bullet Can a bullet ricochet off pavement and up through a cars floorboard, as seen on Burn Notice? Can you ride an explosions shock wave to jump farther than you can under your own power?

Mailbag Special Can you eat a spoonful of cinnamon without drinking water? Which will fall faster, a sixpack of light beer or regular beer? Can a bullet from a .50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol not penetrate 25 watermelons? Can a van loaded with leaking containers of flammable gases explode when it receives a signal from its keyless remote?

Duel Dilemmas Should you really never bring a knife to a gunfight? Will you lose a sword fight if you try to strike first? Did the 14th-century Chinese design a two-stage, arrow-launching missile?

Hollywood Gunslingers What is bulletproof? Can someone running through gunfire make it out safe? Can bullets made of silver or engraved with an enemys name be as effective as unmodified ammunition? Does the person who draws second have a better chance of winning in a gunfight? Can a nail gun inflict wounds as lethal as a firearm? Can a MAC-10 dropped down a flight of stairs start firing by itself? Can a person firing two pistols simultaneously, rather than alternating left/right hand shots, hit targets more effectively than a person holding one pistol in a two-handed stance? Is the length of a typical action-movie gunfight realistic? Can bullets retain lethal speed when fired into several feet of water? Can firing a bullet into the side of an airplane at altitude cause a large amount of suction that ma**ively expands the bullet hole and s**s out the pa**engers?

Fright Night Can certain sound frequencies persuade people that an area is haunted? Is it really possible to smell fear? Is it really as easy to move and bury a dead body as it is in the movies?

Mini Myth Medley Are people really well-acquainted with the backs of their own hands? Can a needle be thrown through a gla** pane without shattering it? Is it really impossible to ride a bicycle underwater? Does the potty dance really allow you to delay the urge to urinate?

Cannonball Chemistry Can a mattress cushion the impact of a long fall onto water? Are stone cannonballs as deadly as steel ones?

Food Fables Can you cook a full holiday meal on the engine of a running car? Does the tryptophan in turkey make you sleepy? Is it easy to confuse the taste of unusual meat with chicken? Have the Chinese invented the worlds fastest way to cook popcorn?
