'Mythbusters' Busts Some Windows

One of my favorite shows, 'Mythbusters', went in to a town in Northern California called Esparto to try and bust a new myth for their television show. They wanted to see if someone could actually have their socks knocked off. Well if you watch the television show you probably know what's coming next... or maybe not. They packed a mannaquin with 500lbs of ammonium nitrate to see if that would do the trick. I don't know if it worked, but the explosion was HUGE. How huge you ask? The show replaced windows that were blown out in some surrounding houses and it had people running out of their houses a mile away to see what happened. I cannot wait to see this episode. For an example on how big their explosions can get, here's a little compilation:

Take the jump over to KCRA for the full news story on the explosion.
