Default Anyone watch Mythbusters last night?

Biggest explosion ever, kinda cool actually.

when they were doing the small scale, they were using airbags, some of which look like they came from a bonneville <92-95>. anybody see this and may be able to confirm that it is from that. also, they pulled a penny out of the bag assembley. any ideas on how that got in there?

i would hate to see a penny flying out of an airbag on deployment at ~200mph

haha, yeah i saw it.... that was pretty cool how that one piece completely wrapped itself around the trunk of that small tree and broke it right off!! Dude, that was crazy. Not to mention all the other metal ALL OVER THE PLACE! That was cool.

Not only wouldn't have wanted to be around that explosion because of the metal flying..but can you imagine those SUPER SMALL shards of glass?!?!?! OUCH!!!

I agree. It wasn't as cool as the cement truck. It was more explosive with a bigger bang but it didn't look like as big of an explosion due to the lack of stuff getting blown up. Still cool though. I love those guy'* job.
