Hey, Jamie. Just thought I'd start out by saying my family has been watching Mythbusters since the beginning. It's fostered a lot of scientific thinking, which I'm assuming is, at least in part, one of the objectives of the show. Also, I live in Jacksonville, so hopefully I'll be at the show next weekend!

Do you ever wish you had more time to explain or explore the actual science behind the myths you test? I can't think of anything off the top of my head right now, but sometimes I can't help but notice that some explanations/shows are aimed at an audience that doesn't have a strong scientific background, which is understandable when you consider the show is probably viewed by most people for entertainment, and not necessarily as a source of scientific truth. While a peer reviewed verdict obviously isn't required for most myths, the aspects of chemistry and physics that drive these myths could be interesting.
