Are you sure you're shooting for Mythbusters? Those sound more like props for the Darwin Awards.

And bottle bombs aren't a myth...I've been close enough to a couple to hear them blow...tho I suppose that could have been gremlins busting them then disappearing before I turned around.

Homebrewing costs less than buying commercial beer.

I believe this is your best bet! I try to prove / disprove it on regular basis yet, no conclusion... I guess I'll just have to keep trying...

they did bottle bombs, kinda. they did one with a wine truck that caught on fire and shot corks such and such a distance and were supposed to sound like a machine gun and so on. not exactly the same, but it was kinda cool.

My thoughts exactly @ numbers 1 & 2.

BTW, bottle bombs are no myth. A friend of mine had half of a batch pop on him.

They did one on "Beer Goggles," though - does that count? Adam, Jamie, and Kari got drunk in an empty bar and they each basically went on "Hot Or Not?" as they became progressively more loaded.

That Revy actually cuts and pastes. The reality is that he types each and every response.
