[video] MythBusters - Exploding Toilet

"It's a tough job separating truth from urban legend, but the MythBusters are here to serve. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, both with many years of experience in the special effects industry, take on three myths per episode and use modern-day science to show you what's real and what's fiction. Say you want to know if a toilet will explode if you light a match after spraying a flammable substance down the bowl. Or maybe you've always wondered if you get wetter running in the rain or walking in the rain. Or can assassins use bullets made of ice so as not to leave evidence in their victims? All tricky questions. But Adam and Jamie do more than just explain how something may or may not be scientifically possible. Through trial and error, they actually demonstrate it." -- iTunes Store
