Rat Pee Soda, Hidden Nasties & Car Skip
It’s all cops and swabbers tonight as Adam and Jamie turn dirt detectives to get to the bottom of two frighteningly filthy myths, while Tory, Grant and Jessi skip the lake fantastic with a manic movie myth. First up Adam and Jamie get to the bottom of an unsanitary urban legend. In ‘Rat Pee Soda’ they test the myth that soda cans are contaminated by rat pee, and that those rodent remains can kill. Then they go on a grime wave testing the myth that everyday items are dirtier than your toilet seat. In ‘Hidden Nasties’ they get the swab done, finding out if there are more ghastly germs on everyday items like cell phones and keyboards than there are on the old porcelain throne. And the results of our grime scene investigation will surprise you. Meanwhile Tory, Grant and Jessi cut to the chase.
In the 80′s movie ‘Speed Zone’ the driver of an Italian super car needs to make a quick getaway from the cops, and after a high-speed chase he turns off the road and towards a pond, it would seem he’s trapped, but instead he puts the pedal to the metal, and speeds the car towards the lake…whereupon it bounces across the surface, like a skipping stone and then continues to drive on the other side! But is this fantasy or stone cold fact? Because nobody is volunteering for a high speed dip, Grant our resident control geek takes over, and with one remote controlled super car ready to go the team have only one option – take it to location, get it up to speed and drive it into a lake! After their first test it seems this may not be as simple as the movie made out, but our Mythbusters never leave any stone unturned so tune in to see whether this myth will sink or skim!
