In honor of the protests over illegal immigration . . .

Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel tonight examined the myth of a gigantic slingshot used to fling people through the air and across the border. There’s one way to cross! Of course they’re too nice/smart to get too embroiled, so the imaginary border they created to test their gigantic slingshot was the US Canadian border. But not too nice, and definately smart enough to put the episode into heavy rotation for the next week. It was a pretty darn funny episode. (And no, you can’t really use a slingshot to get someone over the border.)
