I love Archimedes Death Ray. It is the quintessential MythBusters myth. The intro mentioned that they’ve done it twice before, but that’s not really true. They did it. The MIT professor wrote in that they did it wrong, AND they had a small scale competition to see if someone else could get it right. One girl even got in internship with Jaime out of it. By my count, this was death ray #4.
The B team shouldn’t have been worried about running over what hit the jeep. Hellboy served as a bit of a fulcrum himself, kept the weight stationary.
