This is a fun show on the Discovery Channel. I've watched a few episodes...with myths like these:
It's possible to swing all the way around on a swing set.
The daddy long legs the world's most venomous spider.
Diving under water can save you from gunfire.

"Each week special-effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman take on three myths and use modern-day science to show you what's real and what's fiction.

30 Days with Morgan Spurlock
Wednesdays 10 PM eastern on FX.
A TV show by Morgan Spurlock, of "Super Size Me" fame, subjects other people to 30 days of their own personal hell on his new FX. A Christian will live in a Muslim community, a homophobe will live with gay people, fossil fuel-dependent 30-somethings will live off the grid, and a mother will binge drink to try to identify with her daughterâ€™s life. On the show's first episode, Spurlock and his fiancee moved from New York to the midwest, where they worked minimum-wage jobs for a month.
We watched this for the first time tonight (the Christian living with Muslims episode) and enjoyed it. We enjoyed Super Size Me too.
