In mythbusters they edit the everliving **** out of the testing. It's supposed to fit into a certain time slot

It was all fun and games until they attacked mythbusters.

There have really only been a few episodes where Mythbusters have been quite wrong.

Most of the time they do several test on different scales. Because if the first test is no where near the same the one on the video, they can only try to increase it.

For example, the one with Sylvester Stallone runs on a hanging bridge and the rope is cut but he's still able to take a few steps and then jump.

They did several test but the moment the rope went off they could not get any sort of fast footing on the planks.

Another one was with a car hanging on the edge of a cliff and a bird lands on it and tip it over. They threw like 40 birds onto to it before it actually went over. You don't need to test it that much.

So Mythbusters are actually pretty accurate with most of their testing.

The Mythbusters do plenty of controls, and they have multiple data points for pretty much every myth that it's feasible to have them for. You just have to remember that they have to put 3+ myths into every thirty minute episode that they air. A lot of that stuff gets cut, and we're just shown the highlights, but you can see a lot more of the process online by visiting their site, which phdcomics obviously did not do. Apparently you don't need citations for a PHD.

Also, try to keep in mind that Mythbusters is a television show with a budget. They might want to be able to blow up six tractor trailer trucks to confirm definitively that yes, this is/is not possible, but they can probably only afford the one. They even say as much on the show. "We're only going to get one take at this, so we'd better get it right the first time." Sound familiar?

Robots won't ever take over the world, though, no. That's just absurd.

Zombie Feynman has a thing or two to say about Mythbusters hate.
