Mythbusters Accidentally Shoots Cannonball Through House

A few “unfortunate bounces” sent a cannonball through a local home after the Mythbusters crew misfired the gigantic projectile for an experiment. The ball missed several water barriers intended to slow it down, was sent skyward and shot clean through the homestead leaving entry and exit holes.

Thankfully no one was hurt.

Which reminds me, did you guy ever heard about the urban legend where a TV show shot a cannonball through a house in Northern California? I wonder if it’s true or not.

    I reject your reality of water barriers and substitute my own!

    Thank goodness no one was hurt.

    Although, I personally feel that if I have to die, it would be awesome if I could be killed by the Mythbusters shooting a cannonball through my chest. In fact, just put “Busted!” on my tombstone. I probably wouldn’t die happy, what with the cannonball sized hole through my body, but I would die in an awesomely nerdy way. I would be dying the dream.
