A lot of these have been featured on the show Mythbusters on the Discovery channel. The one about the penny falling from a tall building was pretty interesting to see tested.

Did you ever see the one with the exploding giant gobstopper? If you heat those in the microwave and then try and bite into it, it will explode and leave you with severe burns. . Crazy. . .

Re: #4, for Republicans, it's only 5%

I wonder what happens when you combine #6 and #13?

The trick with #7 is growing them fast enough to make up for those killed on the weekend

Slick should take caution based on #10

Re: #14, "gross overstatement"? bah -- those are science geeks. I say it's a gross understatement.

I love this show, interesting stuff. What a fun job. I think Adam gets more fun out of blowing stuff up then Jamie does. LOL

I've seen several of these tested on Mythbusters too. That is probably my favorite show and has to be the best job in the world to have. Of course, getting to work with Kari Byron probably isn't too bad either.
