MythBusters (ep 170)

30 Jun

I was not surprised by the result Adam and Jamie got regarding floating on your back instead of treading water to survive an underwater blast. The military generally knows what they are talking about when it comes to keeping soldiers alive.

We also watch Deadliest Warrior, so we already knew that paper armor worked, but it was fun to see the ways in which the Build Team chose to test it. However, when it came to crawling along a rope over water wearing armor (paper or steel)- who thought that would be a good idea? Shouldn’t someone have common sense?
