So the Mythbusters were at the bomb range and I guess they were shooting a cannonball but it all went to hell and one of the cannonballs went through 2 houses in a nearby neighborhood.

I smell massive lawsuits.

DUBLIN: Cannonball experiment by television show damages home... | www.ktvu.com

I hope its not true that it is canceled. I love the show.

Man thats crazy. Those guys are usually pretty on top of things, makes me wonder if it was Adam and Jamie or their idiots that work for them. Good show, but theres no way it will go on after this. At least, i don't think so.

Yea, the Alamida (sp?) bomb range. They have done multiple episodes there. I never realized there were neighborhoods that close to it. I always assumed it was out in the middle of nowhere.

The police don't, the MB were using the range.

I know, my point was what made them think it was a good place to do that? Just because it was a police firing range? I am sure it is safe for what the police do there...but not crazy science experiments with unknown outcomes.

Exactly, no place IMO to be doing crazy experiments with unknown outcomes (that is why they do them right? To see what happens).

They are pretty cautious honestly, and they have done some pretty serious experiments on that range with no incident.

I know I have seen the show, but like ^ said, you think they are in some remote location not some neighborhood police station/barracks. I guess now they know they need more space between these experiments and the public.
