Walking Dead, The - TV Shows
It amazes me how so many people can say that this is a good show, when it is so cliched, tired, and filled with unlikeable characters. But then that is most TV, and not the reason I chose to make this comment. The real problem with this show is that it takes the stupidity in a normal 90 minute zombie movie, and stretches it out to hours on end. The second season story arc is some of the most idiotic television I have ever seen. Basically, the survivors lose a little girl during a zombie attack, and wind up on a farm, where they stay while mounting a search for the girl. What ensues is a tense \"drama\", driven not by the circumstances, but by character stupidity. Where do I begin: 5 minutes into season 2, a boy (Carl) is shot in the woods by one of the farmhands (Otis). I don\'t know who was stupider, the farmhand, or the boy who was out playing in the woods by himself during the zombie apocalypse. Glenn is still everyone\'s whipping boy, and apparently they are comfortable enough with the situation to send him off into town not for emergency rations, but niceities, such as soap opera digest (even though that doesn\'t even come on anymore). Glenn justifies this by saying that he is good at getting in and out of towns infested with zombies, but he certainly doesn\'t display any of this expert sense on camera: eventually he and Maggie (the farm owner\'s daughter) start a sexual relationship. Yeah, porking the landlord\'s daughter may not be the best idea anyway, but these two just pick any old place to do it, taking all of their clothes off and taking the time to get really into it (but no time to even check the area for intruders). Because, you know, if a horde of zombies happens to come in while they\'re en flagrante, I\'m sure they will have the decency to let the two pick up all of their clothes and dress up before chasing them down and eating them. Andrea continues to be an idiot in season 2, and demonstrates why some people should just never be allowed around guns period: at one point she accidentally shot Darryl, as he was coming back from looking for the lost girl from the beginning of the series, because she thought he was a walker. Numerous people told her to put the gun down, and 3 other guys were already on the problem. Of course, had she followed one of the cardinal rules of gun safety, \"don\'t shoot what you can\'t see\", this never would have happened. None of this however, tops the stupidity of the guy who owns the farm, who basically keeps a barn full of them in the belief that they are just sick, and can be treated and cured. If all of this stupidity were happening in a 90 minute movie, it wouldn\'t be so bad: like most zombie movies, it would happen, be over, and that would be that. However with this series, it drags out week after week. One week idiot A goes wandering off into the forest by himself, and the suspense is that we have to wait until next week to see him get raped by zombies, as opposed to 2 minutes from now like with zombie movies. This is just a stupid stupid show. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on January 21, 2012, 11:00 am

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) - TV Shows
With the new movie "Turtles Forever" out, I just want to take this opportunity to say, "I called it." Well, some of it anyway. A review I wrote on JumpTheShark (http://web.archive.org/web/20061031120857/http://www.jumptheshark.com/): (Quote) The franchise itself is beyond jumping: somehow it manages to stay between pop culture and the pure collector's clique well enough that it can resurrect into the public eye every few years without becoming stale. Many other old franchises have tried this, but none up to this point have succeeded as well as TMNT. Also, with interdimensional travel a recurring theme in the stories, the entire series actually has a built in self starter: whenever one incarnation becomes stale, simply focus in on another dimension. With that said, the 2003 series has definitely jumped the shark hardcore with the 4th season. Stuff like Shredder being an Alien and such didn't really hurt the series or the franchise, however, the triple whammy of marginalizing Casey Jones's insanity, making April an expert ninja (who can kick Casey around whenever she wants to) and making Shredder an inferior combatant to Bishop could pretty much end this show tomorrow. Did Eastman and Laird not learn from the previous series what NOT to do with certain characters? If nothing else, haven't they read the runs of the comics that they originally parodied and similar comics? Hell do these guys even watch professional wrestling at all? If so, I would think that they would know that things like marginalizing the villain and the anti-hero are big no-no's when it comes to good storytelling: your heroes are only as good as your villains, and your anti-heroes are good solutions to problems that the guys in the white hats are unwilling or unable to deal with; you don't want to neuter them either, or you'll find your storylines a lot more boring. Eastman and Laird have managed to do both, turning Casey Jones from a crazed justice driven vigilante to an animated version of Ray Romano, and making the Shredder a buffoon on the level of the original animated Shredder of the latter part of the first series. I really like Bishop and the new Rat King as tough enemies for the TMNT, but no one should be outshining the Shredder as far as fighting ability and sheer deviousness, something which Bishop and hell, even Baxter Stockman do regularly. April as a super ninja has also got to go. I know it's Eastman and Laird's series, and they can do whatever they want with it. That said, my opinion, the move sucks. Having her sneak around enemy bases and beat up enemy ninjas (while neutered Casey sits around getting beat up) doesn't make Splinter look better as a ninja master, it makes THE ENEMIES LOOK WORSE, and as a result, it makes the HEROES (aka the TMNT) look that much worse as well. If you don't believe me roll on over to the ST: Voyager comments, and see how Janeway's regular abuse of the Borg went over with fans: do they consider Janeway a hardass or do the Borg suck in public opinion? Apply that answer to the TMNT, and you'll see why April needs to go back to second bananas scene filler real quick. I really don't think that the series is ever coming back, and the rumors I hear of the 6th season being purely comedy oriented (and the 5th being DVD only) don't help matters much either. That is a shame, because the series started out with so much potential...(/Quote) Yeah, season 6 wasn't permanent, nor was April's super ninjitsu, so I missed those. Did get the dimensional crossover though, so I think this might survive the Nickelodeon crossover as well. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on November 24, 2009, 10:42 pm

Guinness World Records - Random Topics
Agreed with the tabloid reason: I remember when the Guinness Book of World Records was a heavy, thick paperback filled with hundreds if not thousands of records and small print. The presentation was very weighty and official, and the appearance of the book itself lent an air of authority to the records presented within. Now it's just a flashy hardcover, and some versions I've seen are thin and only contain the most "popular" records, such as those that were on the short lived and awful TV show. If you want the old GBoWR, I suggest getting a copy of the TIME Almanac, as that book is the closest thing I can find to what the GBoWR used to be. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on June 25, 2009, 2:07 pm

Panda Bears - Random Topics
1) Sure an animal can bone the fish, they just always have the option of boning back. Think of chihuahua's: those Taco Bell commercials, Paris Hilton always carrying one around, etc etc. Pet turtles when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was popular. And then there were Dalmatian puppies when the live action 101 Dalmatian movie came out. 2) A lot of titles here aren't the proper titles for their subjects, as most of them officially contain the author's or creator's name as part of the title: IE Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Disney's Gummi Bears, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World." People who are looking for a topic still find what they're looking for. 3) Pandas are cute, but I had to agree with the "too lazy to have sex" option: I laughed until my stomach hurt. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on June 25, 2009, 1:46 pm

Sonic the Hedgehog - Random Topics
The second reason Sonic boned being gimmicky gameplay. When the series got all these extra characters and gadgets and motivations that nobody cared about, somebody had to DO something with them. So, in order to make these characters and extra crap look less like the nuisances that they were, the games had to be built in such a way that the extras were made an integral part of gameplay. Sonic Adventure incorporated the least annoying version of this idea: levels that you can only complete using a certain character. Kunckles Chaotix introduced a glitchy tag team system, Sonic Riders introduced surfboards with bad control, Shadow the Hedgehog gave the main character GUNS. Even Sonic himself wasn't immune to these changes: in numerous games he is now required to do "tricks" in order to pass certain parts of a stage, tricks that are generally done by pressing an extra button that is only used when it is time to do the trick. Once again, Sega should have taken a lesson from Nintendo in this regard. Adding new character abilities isn't bad in and of itself in the least: Mario can do more than run, jump, and shoot like he did in the first SMB. However, there's a way to do it, and a way not to. Character actions should be generally useful throughout the game, and fairly independent of location or setting in the game. An action should not exist for the sole purpose of completing a scenario which exists for the sole purpose of permitting the action to be used. If character X has a long jump, said long jump should generally be up to the user to decide when it should be used, and it should be useful in more than one place. There may be scenarios in the game where a long jump is required, and may be the only way to complete the scenario, however it is set up such that it is not a pointless exercise. Sonic does it the wrong way: you have your basic moveset, then you have these extra movesets and buttons. In some games, there are parts where, once you get to them, you are required to press the buttons in a certain order in order to proceed or activate a special move. These moves aren't useful anywhere else but there. Furthermore, in many of these places, the gimmick is the only way to proceed through the level. Nothing would be lost by removing both the gimmick and the move, which points to how useless the move really is. Mario doesn't do this: Mario gives you a set of moves, and you get to decide what to do with them. All in all, this made a game that no one really wanted to play, save the hardcore fans. When you think of games that are fun to just pick up and play, Sonic probably isn't among them, and if he is, you're probably thinking of an earlier incarnation. Nobody is going to compare Sonic Unleashed to SMB64, or even Luigi's Mansion. Sonic Rush will always be the Sonic that could have been better, because they incorporate more of these bad ideas into that series. Really, if I were Sega, I would do a tongue in cheek retcon of the whole series. Let's forget everything that came before, and do it New Super Mario Bros style. Take some of the old stuff, add in some of the features from Sonic 3 and Knuckles, keep the basic plot of the old Sonic, and go from there. Sonic has the same problem that Star Trek had: there's just too much garbage in the past for things to keep going on like this. Sega should really go back to the drawing board on this one. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 12, 2009, 1:37 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
I agree with everything said below me. The commercials are pandering, and just stupid. The slogans don't even make sense anymore: "It's who I am and what I do?" What the hell does that have to do with fast food. My least favorite one is the one where the stupid looking black girl does karate during the commercial, as though McDonalds helps her get through karate practice. Anyone who actually does anything requiring physical fitness knows that that is a lie, eat anything from McDonalds, and you'll be too busy taking a dump to do any strenuous physical activity. Boned the fish...then put it on the menu. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 9, 2009, 12:07 pm

eBay - Websites
In regards to the comment below me: you actually can't give a buyer bad feedback. It doesn't matter what a buyer does, a seller cannot give a buyer bad feedback. You can not pay me, threaten me, lie about stuff that you received, say that you didn't receive something, and if I don't have proof that I actually sent you something, as a seller, I can't do anything except in the non pay case, where I can ask ebay to pursue a payment for me. So far as the recourse you have as a buyer, generally when cases like this get investigated, the seller is expected to prove that they did indeed send the item, and if they can't, then it's assumed that the item was never sent. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 3, 2009, 6:41 pm

Dixie Chicks - Music Groups
I don't like the Dixie Chicks one bit, but I have to agree with the sentiment that the people who were/are calling them unpatriotic are jumping the gun. For the sake of argument, let's say that the president were a bona fide madman who was throwing people into jail and killing millions right and left. If the Dixie Chicks or anyone else had said that this man were a lunatic, would they necessarily be unpatriotic. If so, what would be the patriotic thing to do, shut up and/or endorse the madman's antics? The President and the country are two different things, and one can have different feelings about one than the other. They disagreed with his actions during wartime, and they were perfectly within their rights to do so. This is why the Constitution was written the way it was, so that we don't wind up under a King and end up forced to go to war with no recourse at his whim. It wasn't like they actively committed treason against the country, in which case I'd be the first person wanting them to be shot. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 2, 2009, 3:45 am

War of the Worlds (1989 Series) - TV Shows
Definitely the second season, in one of the most brutal shark humpings...err I mean fish bonings on network television. This show is an object lesson for a few things about TV shows period: 1) Network execs don't know jack about entertainment. The End. 2) Sometimes, cast shakeups are inevitable, and someone you like may move on to greener pastures. However, if you look up and half the cast is gone, or they add 20 new people to the show, it's about to hump the shark. 3) TV series based off of movie properties almost never work, because no one ever follows the movie canon properly. I don't know what to say: this show could have been legend in the sci-fi community. It certainly had the pedigree for it. I hope the idea is picked back up in a retcon or something, simply starting the premise of the old series from now, and pretending the old series never happened. I know it won't, but it's nice to dream. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 2, 2009, 3:30 am

Sonic the Hedgehog - Random Topics
Sonic boned after Sonic and Knuckles, but for a number of different reasons. 1) Sega started taking Sonic way too seriously. When the game came out, the story was about an anthropomorphic hedgehog that had magic sneakers on a quest to save his furry animal friends and the environment (who he just happened to be 3 times taller than). If you think about it, it made no freaking sense whatsoever, but like most video game stories at the time, it was the perfect excuse, to put a blue walking hedgehog into a game running at breakneck speed and executing game mechanics derived from Mario. Tweaks were made to the storyline, but all in all, it remained pretty simplistic: like Virtua Fighter, there was just enough story to make the game work, no more, no less. Then after Sonic and Knuckles, the furry fans got involved, and that was the end of Sonic. They tried to make a meaningful story where Sonic interacted with humans. In the ABC series commonly known as Sonic SatAM, this kind of worked, because humans were offscreen for the most part, save Robotnik, and while there were some unnecessarily deep plots, for the most part, it was a simple story that didn't get into ugly contradictions and relationships. Then Sonic XTreme, the aborted Saturn game, didn't come out, and that was the end of the franchise. When the Dreamcast came out, Sonic was back in a new adventure, however this was where Sonic started having problems. Suddenly, they tried to make this whole thing work in the HUMAN world, complete with explanations that all of this was taking place in Australia on Earth, not Moebius, and we just weren't noticing this until now. Furries got this wonderful idea that we'd love to see Tails as a super genius flying around in a spaceship with Sonic, Amy, and a whole lot of other characters that we just didn't give a flying damn about. Robotnik's name was changed to match up with his Japanese incarnation, and some inane overly complex "epic" storyline was concocted in order to add "depth," to the storyline. Maybe the idea was to 1up Mario in both storyline and gameplay, but they failed at both. You would think that Sonic Team would learn some lessons from the Mario dev team by now, namely keeping it simple and uncomplicated WORKS, and sometimes less is more. Look at Mario games: even today Mario's goal is pretty much "save the princess, save the world," period. No more backstory than is absolutely necessary is provided to make the game move. That's not to say that the story isn't good, but it's simple, and it focuses on what is necessary, not what is not. Here's an example of Nintendo's backstory on Super Mario Brothers: Mario Mario and Luigi Mario, two plumbers, are accidentally sucked into a drain pipe leading to the Mushroom Kingdom, a magical land filled with talking turtles, walking mushrooms, and many other magical creatures. In order to get home and save the land they're in, they must use magic and their wits to defeat Bowser, King of the Koopas, and rescue the Mushroom Princess, whose magic may be able to get them home. Simple, easy, straightforward. If Sega and Sonic Team were writing this backstory today, we'd have to have a 150 page story about how Mario got his abilities from being a genetically modified ex CIA agent, and Luigi was a weapons expert, and Toad suffers from a curse that changes him into a demon on certain nights, and the Princess is a latent psychic ESPer with the power to destroy the world, and Bowser is actually a genetic experiment gone wrong who was designed by the Princess's father, who was secretly a madman himself... You may laugh, but this is the kind of plot that we see floating around in Sonic games now. In other words, the kind that we not only don't care about, but is actually stupid enough to take away from the gameplay. Which leads me to my second point, which I shall have to write at a later time, as I have been too long on this first part already. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 1, 2009, 12:09 pm

eBay - Websites
Once again, multiple bonings apply. Fees and stupid customers are both valid reasons. 1) You won't quite understand how bad eBay gets you with fees until you realize that eBay and PayPal are the same, that eBay pretty much requires you to complete transactions in PayPal, that PayPal charges you fees on top of eBay as though they were a separate company, and that PayPal will charge you several times for doing the same thing. 2) As a seller, you have no protection. When you first look at the ebay policies, and see all the measures they have in place, you might think that this is a good thing for buyers and sellers, because they can report bad sellers without fear of retribution, and good sellers don't need to worry about getting bad ratings. However, if you're a buyer AND a seller, the truth comes out quickly: as a buyer, I've made about 60 purchases over the past two years. I've had _One_ instance where a seller tried to scam me to the point where I had to threaten to go to court to get my merchandise, and this was after 2 months of talking and exhausting every other method. In the same time period, I have sold about 50 items. 17 of them were non-pay's after extended periods (over 2 weeks), where I had to go to eBay to go after them for my money, or people complaining about mail transit time, expecting it to be unrealistic (IE complaining that the US Post office didn't mail them their 200 lb exercise bike in 1 day from Florida to Alaska when they selected First Class mail as opposed to Express or UPS...you can't mail such a thing 1st class, but that's an exaggerated example), or people complaining about issues that they were informed of through email or on my listing (IE complaining that an item arrived disassembled when I clearly stated in larger than normal print that the item will be disassembled for ease of shipping, or complaining that an item is using substitute parts in a refurbishing when I have stated that said item included substitute generic parts, and explained where they can find OEM parts if they so choose before they purchase), or non issues (IE the customer is just lying). The truth that you realize quickly is, as a buyer, you have a lot less to fear from being screwed over than as a seller. Market forces keep most sellers honest: a seller could rip people off, but one who wants to make a lot of money realizes that you're better off being honest, because they want a buyer and as many of their friends to come back to them as often as possible, as opposed to someone else. However a buyer doesn't really care who someone else sells to, so long as they can find one seller who will sell to them, which there always is. Word of mouth travels among sellers as well as buyers, but it's easier to get blacklisted as a bad seller than a bad buyer, even though there are probably more bad buyers than bad sellers. As it stands, there's little reason to sell on eBay unless you're using it to augment another business like selling at the flea market or selling at home. When you count in all the fees from eBay, PayPal, and shipping, it's hard to make a profit as it is, and when a customer makes a complaint, win or lose, YOU the seller pay for that complaint, as PayPal charges you for them having made that complaint, regardless of how unfounded it was, regardless of whether you were rectifying the problem, regardless of whether there was even a problem. It's so bad that technically, you can mail an item to someone, and someone can complain to PayPal that they didn't receive their item, virtually immediately after you sent it, and PayPal will freeze your account with them, take money out of it to investigate it, and blame you because the delivery service doesn't use teleporters to send packages. Even if they conclude that the buyer's complaint was ridiculous, they won't give you your money back for having investigated a BS claim. So yeah, eBay is one hell of a fish Fillet. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 1, 2009, 10:49 am

Starship Troopers - Movie Series
I agree with the reason that this had little to do with the books, but the reason about the antiquated war tactics is equally as valid. I'll add another: the logic doesn't really work out for a bunch of stuff. The stated logic regarding why only soldiers are allowed to vote doesn't really work in the book or the movie: it is said that this system is used because it ensures a balance of power, and "the maximum amount of power that you can wield is equal to the maximum amount of responsibility that you can accept for wielding it." This doesn't quite work, because I can presumably vote again and again and again, and affect neither society nor myself in the least (think everyone who voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 election), however if I die to pay for this, I am permanently affected by this irrevocably, even though my ability to vote had no effect. If they had just said something trite like "if you're brave enough to hold a gun and get shot at you're responsible enough to cast a ballot" I'd have brought it more. The thing about women being better pilots in High G environments is questionable as well: not because I have a problem with women being portrayed in such roles, but because at the level of the forces that we're dealing with, the slight advantage that women have over men in high g conditions would be moot, and you'd probably be better off using pilotless vehicles run by AI or broadcast signals from mother ships that remain in orbit. It's like saying "I'm going to fire a bullet at you at the speed of light, what would you rather have as armor, iron or steel?" Of course, some of these comments veer off into the book too, so I'm going to stop here. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 4:10 pm

Cube - Movie Series
The instant a sequel was made, the entire series boned the fish. Film directors, and film students of all genres should have a copy of this film series in their library. It so perfectly illustrates a number of concepts that film makers don't get: 1) Everything doesn't need a sequel. 2) Some questions are better left unanswered for the audience. 3) More money != (does not equal) better movie. The first movie almost qualified as a parable: the Cube was a setting, but also a faceless, nameless, anonymous character in the way the Starship Enterprise is both setting and character in its franchise. No explanation was given as to how it came to be, beyond hints that one of the prisoners was responsible for designing a part of it. This ambiguity of purpose, combined with the unavoidable and obvious lethal nature of the cube, was the centerpiece of the story: these prisoners were trapped in this gigantic, inescapable, death trap, that some of them in part helped to build, but no one was really responsible for. The very real possibility that not one single person knew the magnitude of the death trap that they had helped to create was a plot point that was far more interesting than the explanations for the cube that were given in the later films, partially because this sort of thing has happened in real life: individual members of an organization think they're just helping out the cause/just being human or normally bad and are no worse than any ordinary person, but together they create unspeakable evil, that no one or only a few high ranking members fully comprehend. None of this was certain, but the way it was handled gave one something to think about after the credits rolled, something that very few movies rarely do. The second and third cube movies devolved into cliche quickly. Cube 2 left questions unanswered, but they weren't interesting esoteric questions that added to the story imply by being left unanswered, rather plot threads were introduced that were simply left hanging. A plot point involving IZON was introduced, but no one is ever told exactly what IZON is, and the one person who goes survives to tell the tale is immediately executed upon escape, without explaining everything that was introduced before. The third movie just needlessly complicates the first movie, and while it is a decent stand alone feature, it shouldn't have been made in reference to Cube. So this movie boned on the first sequel. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 12:57 pm

Seconded, never boned. I wish that the Jay Sherman character would come back to piss on real movies in real life: with some of the bad movies that are slated to come out and have been out recently (Street Fighter, Dragon Ball Z, Thundercats, Battle Angel), he is sorely needed. However if they do something like that, it won't work unless Jon Lovitz is doing his voice. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 12:26 pm

Voltron: Defender of the Universe - TV Shows
Thing about the Sven injury was, this was due to a whole lot of plot chopping and rewriting on both sides of the ocean. You hear those stories about people in cartoons dying in the original script, then getting put back in in a voice over. This is what happened here. Technically, in Japan Sven was dead. They just didn't kill him over here, and the way they showed episodes over here, it made it look like he was just too injured to pilot the Lion. Also, extra footage was made for Voltron that never aired in Japan. The movie "Fleet of Doom," was purely for the US market: in Japan the Vehicle and Lion Voltrons had nothing to do with each other. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 28, 2009, 11:03 pm

Lion King - Movie Series
I have to disagree with the comment about Disney ripping off the Lion King from Kimba. I'm going to grant that Disney has made some deplorable animation over the years. However, people who say that the Lion King sucks because Disney stole it from Tezuka don't really know what they're talking about. On the one hand, I will grant that the two shows have extremely similar characters, so similar as to invite the possibility of plagiarism on that count. However, if you watch the two shows, you'll see that they are nothing alike so far as story goes: The Lion King really did deal mostly with Simba's journey to find himself, brought about by his exile resulting from Scar's lie. Kimba was about Kimba and his struggle to reconcile humans and animals, as well as his attempts to "civilize" some of the animals by getting them to eat bugs. People who talk about the Kimba/Simba controversy make like if you're watching the Lion King, you're just watching an inferior version of Kimba the White Lion and you're getting ripped off. In fact this isn't true, I've seen both, and I can tell you, outside of the nostalgia value you really aren't missing anything if you haven't seen Kimba but you have seen The Lion King. They are two different stories, and the main characters have two completely different motivations that overlap in parts, but are different enough to drive the two different stories. Lion King may have boned, and Disney may have boned, but it wasn't because of Kimba. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 23, 2009, 7:22 pm

OJ Simpson - Celebrities
His most recent conviction in Las Vegas. A retroactive bone the fish moment in that it justified all of the hate and derision thrown at him before that he avoided because of his acquittal. I wanted to believe that OJ didn't do it, and if after being acquitted, OJ had went on to live an uninteresting, ordinary life, I might have actually brought that this was a generally decent guy who got a bad rap off a false accusation. However this wasn't the case: OJ was in trouble with the law every 5 minutes, and getting in fights with girlfriends and his daughter. Given that, it's not a stretch to assume that he killed his ex wife: most people would say "who would be stupid enough to kill your ex wife the way OJ did," but then who would be stupid enough to do all of the stuff that OJ has been seen doing, save OJ himself? -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 23, 2009, 12:07 pm

Mythbusters - TV Shows
http://mythbustersresults.com/episode46 With regards to my previous comment, here is an example of myths that have supposedly been "busted" that actually were true because the experiment was done wrong, or was rushed in order to "make" a conclusion happen. http://www.tmth.edu.gr/en/aet/1/13.html Doing a search for this on the internet, there's enough corroborating evidence (as well as several other people who tried the same experiment under identical conditions and made it work) such that we can conclude that it was Mythbusters who screwed up performing the experiment, and that the myth is actually true. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 23, 2009, 11:45 am
