    Know your Backstop - Mythbusters

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...annonball.html

    I saw this and thought to post it. Since no one was injured it is humorous but it could have ended much worse.

    I enjoy the show and hope they don't run into legal issue that end it.

    I'm sure they will pay the people off and the show will go on. Kinda remarkable what one little cannonball can do though.

    Adam apparently didn't find it too funny. From what I heard he was at their house balling his eyes out trying to apologize to them.

    I'm sure they were mortified. They seem like they are good guys.

    I think the word you want is "bawling". The word you used has an entirely different connotation.

    I have been on that range, many times. One thing that the article does not say is that the range faces approx 90 deg away from the houses. It is also almost 2000' away from the street that the house's were on.
