'Mythbusters' Cannonball Accidentally Launches Into California Home

The Discovery Channel's popular mythbusting duo busted more than the myth this time.

A stunt for the show, "Mythbusters," went awry Tuesday when a cannonball was launched through the side of a California home.

The house in Dublin -- southeast of Oakland -- was hit at about 4:15 p.m. when a cannonball was "misfired" from a nearby bomb range, KTVU-TV reported, citing the Alameda County Sheriff's Department.

A sheriff's spokesperson said "the cannonball took a few unfortunate bounces" before hitting the home, going all the way through the house before smashing the window of a mini van, KTVU-TV reports.

"That cannonball careened off the hill at a very bad trajectory and carried into this neighborhood," J.D. Nelson of Alameda County Sheriff's Department said.

No one was injured.
MMMMM

Hot Dog in a Hallway with her. Already squeezed a burden out of that box

In other words, this is right down the road from me.

Shit, that's right she had a kid. Now that pink goodness likely looks like a bulldog's mouth after he's eaten a bowl of whipped cream.

Actually, they got kicked out of the quarry they used to use because they set off an ammonium nitrate bomb that was WAY bigger than expected and broke some windows and scared the shit out of the local town.

I remember when the blew up that concrete mixer with an ammonium bomb. I don't think there was a piece of that truck bigger then a shoe box left.

It was actually the "knock your socks off" myth that prompted all the blown out windows, not the cement mixer. They even talked about it on a recent "best of" episode. The producer grabbed Kari and said "you're coming with me. Nobody can be mad at a pregnant lady!".

Adam and the Hymenman should do their disclaimer in front of those houses they just wrecked.

The title should have been "Mythfired" or sumptin tss tss


In spite of it being a pre-housing range and all, I'm surprised it still faces homes, regardless of the odds this happening. Amazing nobody was even injured. Seeing all those holes reminded me of that recochet ball in "Men In Black"

It probably was that dumb broad "Carry" or whatever her name is.

Show would be 20x non-effected if she vanished and never appeared again.

The geeky middle school kids gotta have a smart girl to idolize!!!!! LOLOLOL

Fuck the guy covering that story, that was fucking awful. He got out of the van 10 minutes before it happened, he didn't exactly have a near death experience. That is why I don't watch the news.

Cannonballs leave cannonball-shaped holes -- confirmed.
