So. You're minding your own business, filling up your gas tank, when your cell phone rings. Hmmm. Should you answer it? Because you've heard you shouldn't use cell phones near gas stations since they can produce small sparks that can ignite big fires.
But wait. Could that actually be true?
Sounds like a job for MythBusters!
It's a tough job separating truth from urban legend, but the MythBusters are here to serve. Each week special-effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman take on three myths and use modern-day science to show you what's real and what's fiction.
That's right, they do more than explain how something may or may not be scientifically possible. Through trial and error they actually demonstrate it.
So don't miss these two experts attempt to ignite a fire with a cell phone or explode a toilet
Oh, and hey, Adam and Jamie are open to your ideas. To suggest an urban legend for the MythBusters to explore, just post it in our discussion board.
