      How about revisiting the portable bathroom explosion myth. Someone recently passed away in Florida by lighting up a smoke in the John at work.

    I've known about the motion sensor one. It depends on the motion sensor though. Ultrasound is iffy and depends on the refresh rate abd trip size. PIR the bedsheet can work depending how well you mask your bodyheat, microwave almost fool prove and AIR you can't move past. It really is just a senseativity thing, to sensitive and you get lots of alarms for stuff that doesn't need it too little and tricks like this work. Generally anything alarm protected will use two differnt types of sensors to cover the weakspots of individual sensors.

          The rock from a mower being able to kill someone is a given. It’s a bit weird this one made the cut? After shooting a random lost 3” bolt through the door of my dads car with a victor push mower. Yeah I’d believe it’d kill someone.

            The other day a car launched a stone with its tires and I was afraid it might hurt me, then I thought "but it couldn't actually kill me, right?" 😶

                        The lawnmower thing is real, one time in college a bunch of friends and i were outside of the class room and a guy was using a lawnmower like 20 meters away and sudenly we heard a sound but we saw nothing, seconds later we noticed a big hole between a friend and i in the wall, just centimeters away from either of our heads, we just were stunned.

                            747 unexpected? Sorry if an engine can make a 100 ton aircraft fly at 560+ mph of course it can blow over a bus 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

                              most of these are pretty self explanatory if u have some basic knowledge of physics

                                  Annoying when you say “point 3-5-7”, but you then hear the myth busters say it correctly, then say it again. I get that you probably deities it out of sequence but thatd be something easy to fix. If not only just for continuity.

                                        Once again it should be pointed out that the hot water tank in that episode of Mythbusters was highly modified to get that effect!!!! They clearly showed with the first hot water heater that they do not explode, I repeat hot water heaters do not explode they rupture and leak water out becuse they have several safety features built in. If you still don't believe what I'm saying actually watch the episode instead of commenting on it. This is extremely stupid of Mojo to list this as a confirmed myth, without commenting that they modified the tank extensively for that scene. All Mojo doing is using clickbait to scare people. If Adam Savage were to see this he'd be very angry at you.

                                          Remember when they said an axe would be better than a gun in a zombie apocalypse because their cheap airsoft spring gun jammed

                                            Guns would be hard to find in a zombie apocalypse and bullets because people would stockpile them.

                                                        The school bus behind a jumbo jet didn’t surprise me at all... why wouldn’t an engine that can lift a plane that weighs over 400,000 lbs be able to do the same to a school bus that weighs less than 40,000 lbs?

                                                        Also the lawn mower one was also one that just made sense to me. A lawnmowers blade turns at 3000 rpm, so that rock will be traveling up to 200+ mph so it should be more than able to kill someone.

Movies portray bullets cutting through water, however if you think about it, that's a lot of energy, and water just slapping hard enough with your hand will hurt it slightly, since water is very slightly a non newtonian fluid, one that rapidly hardens. Water just needs a lot of energy to do it, unlike oobleck. So a bullet hitting the water will have a hell of a lot of energy and crumple the bullet. If the bullet does hit you, it won't penetrate skin, however it might still burn you
