I just watched that new episode of Mythbusters

1 million lego 2x4 bricks + 3 pyromaniacs + inclined plane = this busted!

Cool

but i failed to figure out what was the "myth" was

-lego in a large amount is deadly?
-a lego cubic ball thingy wont destroy a car?
-nobody is faster than a ball of lego?

Surprised the had cars on the street and pegged it,... somebody's getting sued

I saw an article that it was going to be on TV, but I don't have cable or satellite so I couldn't watch it.

I watched it last night. Awesome!

The myth was if the video was real or faked in some way.

They claimed 5 million bricks.

Mythbusters made a 7 foot high ball with around 1 million and it was very heavy. Its very hard to get a million bricks so 5 million isn't really likely. They figured the one in the video was hollow to appear so light.

They also wanted to see if it would really not damage the car. But theirs had "issues".

the way it fell apart suggested it was hollow as well.

no, it wasn't hollow, that much i know. 1 million bricks was too much to build just the shell, plus the built the inside on the show.

Definitely a good episode

Discovery Channel is also the shit because they have Time Warp and the most BrikWars show on TV: Weaponizers

the one on youtube is odd.
mythbusters found the solid one wasent strong enought to roll, yet they made it solid.
the people in the video might of made theirs hollow since where are you gonna get 1million bricks cheaply.
its a odd one, i think the youtube one was glued.
