At this point this myth was declared busted for humans. On the third day, the procedure was again repeated and this time each person attempted to relax as much as possible both physically and mentally. They repeated the procedure the next day, but this time attempted to dance and move around to help them combat the urge to pee. It is possible to pierce, without shattering, a pane of glass by throwing a needle at it. The guys test an underwater bike ride, if you really can 'know it like the back of your hand,' and the potty dance.
Jamie, meanwhile, added lead training wheels weighing 140 lbs total to the front and back of his bike. Adding 50 lbs of weights helped slightly when riding downhill but they still could not ride uphill. People can easily recognize the backs of their own hands. They continued their normal daily activity and measured how long they could wait before urinating. These are just a few of the myths, urban legends, and improbable sayings that the Mythbusters try to figure out.
Comprised of special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Heineman - as well as their mottley crew of Mythbuilders, Mythterns, and resident 'crash test dummy' Buster - they don't just tell the myths, they put them to the test to see which ones are possible, and which ones are just plain bunk. . Using the same methodology as above, 7 out of 12 people correctly identified their palms and 10 out of 12 people correctly identified their teeth. After noting that the results of each method can vary widely from person to person, the team called this myth plausible. Tory lasted 2:05, Grant 2:46, and Kari 2:43.
In this test, Tory lasted 1:31, Grant 1:51, and Kari 2:47. Tory was able to last 1 hr 57 min; Grant, 1 hr 58 min; and Kari, 2 hr 40 min. Again, despite shattering a steel needle, Matt Cain was not able to pierce the glass. They decided to modify their bikes further and have a race to see whose ideas worked the best. Next they brought in a professional baseball pitcher, Matt Cain, to help them.
Despite their troubles, this myth was busted because they did find it possible to ride under water on flat ground. It is impossible to ride a bicycle under water. Adam and Jamie also decided to see how well people could identify their palms and their teeth. The team mixes it up with a medley of viewer requested myths and hit a home run with baseball legend Matt Cain. Can you in fact go insane by having water drip on your forehead? Both Adam and Jamie still struggled greatly to ride their bikes uphill in order to complete the race. . .
