Can you really get cabin fever? Does double dipping cause germs? Are hand dryers better than paper towels? For the past 12 years, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage have been using scientific experiments to test myths, urban legends, folklore, history, movies and the Internet on their Discovery Channel series, MythBusters (and they’ve gotten plenty of big-name help from the likes of President Barack Obama, James Cameron and Seth Rogen). The hosts are turning their popular TV show into a live, interactive experience using stories, demonstrations and audience Q&A. So who knows? Maybe you’ll be called up to take part in a stunt to prove whether axes or guns are better in a zombie attack.
