If you use Reddit, then you might have already seen the message Adam Savage from MythBusters posted a few days ago.

Adam is asking for Reddit users’ ideas for more myths for them to bust.

In case you don’t have a Reddit account, here’s what he posted.

“You read that right: I’m happy to announce that we’re doing MythBusters: The Reddit Special! Yup, we’re handing over the editorial of an episode to YOU. So if you’ve got a TESTABLE myth you want us to tackle, post it below. If you’ve got a myth you think we messed up and should do again, then put it here in this thread. We are also interested in novel methodologies if you guys have something interesting in that regard too! If you want us to blow something up, here’s where you can tell us! Or if you’ve just got a burning desire to send something weird and wonderful to its doom courtesy of the rocket sled, then you know what to do. (Post it below!)

“Basically, we’ll tackle the myths you guys have suggested with one obvious caveat—the myths have to be PG-13! We’re definitely up for some fun with stuff like farting, but anything more R-rated than that (and we know how Reddit works) is not going to fly! In two weeks’ time, the MythBusters R&D team will trawl through this entire thread and select the myths/stunts/questions/requests that are the best fit for the show, and then we’ll fast-track the episode to a screen near you in early 2016. Happy posting!”

So far, they have had 4039 comments.
