Everyone's favorite mad scientist mjenks does a wonderful little thing for us on Tuesdays, where he explains to us why things explode and then provides us a video of an explosion.
When Cora was last here, one morning we were lounging around, and I flipped on some MythBusters. Cora had heard of it, but had never really watched it. Earlier, we had wondered if my water heater (not "hot water heater", you don't need to heat hot water) would hold up to the three of us showering in the morning.
MythBusters and water heaters made me think of my favorite episodes of all time.
Note, while they did tamper with the safeties on the water heater, those safeties are only there because somewhere, sometime, they weren't.
So, sleep easy, thinking that something like this is in your house.
(And technically, mjenks isn't a "mad scientist". He can't be after Notre Dame's thrashing of Nevada on Saturday.)
