We all knew that sooner or later, some stunt on “MythBusters”  would go wrong.  What we didn’t know is that it would be a cannonball flying through someone’s house.

Yeah, so this actually happened…

According to Access Hollywood, producers for the show fired a cannonball, yesterday, at the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department bomb range behind the Santa Rita Jail.  The cannonball was supposed to go through a few water-filled barrels and a concrete wall.  It instead misfired, passing over the barrels, through the wall, and then took a “very unfortunate bounce that sent the ball skyward.”

But it wasn’t done yet…about 700 feet away, the cannonball then bounced in front of the home, tore through the front door and made its way straight out a wall on the back of the house. It then bounced at least once more and (just like the chicken) crossed the road and smashed the window and dashboard of a minivan.

Sheriff’s spokesman J.D. Nelson said producers have used the cannon that they built at the range more than 50 times without incident.  He told the Contra Costa Times that no one was injured and the home’s residents didn’t even wake up from the blast.

Jasbir Gill, the owner of the minivan, said he and his children had just gotten home.

“It’s scary…I was in the van five minutes before this happened.”

All I’m wondering is if the stunt will still be shown on an upcoming episode…

This Cellist’s Rendition Of The ‘Inspector Gadget’ Theme Song Is So Good!

You don’t need Go-Go-Gadget-Hearing-Aids to hear how cool this cover is.

There are a few theme songs that are instantly recognizable and one of them definitely belongs to Inspector Gadget. YouTuber, Samara Ginsberg, not only shared her cello composition but also played all eight parts needed to perform the cover perfectly. The sound of eight cellos working together enriches the cartoony tune of the original, making the cover feel more appropriate for someone like James Bond. Talk about an epic mashup idea!

Folding Phones Are Now A Thing! Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s really happening. Could the days of mocking people with flip phones be over? But wait – there’s more. This phone as SIX cameras — three on the back, two inside, and one in the front for when it’s folded. I can’t even count how many selfies that adds up to.

It’s almost two thousand bucks. For now. But it expands from nearly 5 inches as a phone to a 7 inch tablet. Will it make me breakfast???

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

MUST WATCH VIDEO: “How Spies Use Disguises” Is The Most Fascinating Video You’ll Watch All Day.

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
