Paging Doctor Savage... The gold... "They were trying to literally "knock the socks off" a mannequin by igniting 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate. But the explosion was a lot bigger than they expected."

This post was deleted for the following reason: can someone try this again without the "hey you" aspect of this and maybe more than a single link newsfilter post? We all like Adam just fine but don't do this here. -- jessamyn



 
Careful, Adam; you'll get on a DHS list!

They're testing the idiom "knock the socks off"? I bet a producer made them do that, because it's fucking stupid. At least they get to play with explosives.

You had to get me all excited by referencing Doc Savage!

Interesting, but the Man of Bronze this ain't.
Ok, maybe I need to get my head out of the pulps for a few days.

Paging Doctor Savage...

I'm sure I'm not the only one who assumed you meant this guy.

On preview, I owe Seamus a Coke.

Actually, I thought it was Dan Savage, and I was wondering if this was some sort of way out of control post-phd party.

Do we need to reference the fact that the guy has a metafilter account in every post about mythbusters?

I hope that lady with the shattered window gets in the episode. She's so thrilled in the news video.

What happened to the socks? This just an ad for Mythbusters? We have to watch it now?

There is no word on when the episode they taped there will air.

That sounds familiar.

Do we need a comment by delmoi in every Metafilter post?

Does every MetaFilter post need to veer into MetaTalk territory?

Beyond that, the only reason this posted is because it's about Adam Savage. Anyway, this isn't really worth posting here anyway.
