Abstract:

The Mythbusters explore urban legends, including if a penny dropped from a skyscraper could kill a pedestrian below, and if using a cell phone at the gas station could cause the pump to explode.

"In each episode of this fascinating disc, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, the MythBusters, set out to expose three urban legends. Can a penny be dropped from a skyscraper kill a pedestrian walking below? Can a bullet made out of ice kill someone and then vanish without a trace? As special effects experts with over 30 years of experience, Jamie and Adam do all they can to answer these age-old questions."--Back of container.
