* '''Everything about the Underwater Car myth, ''especially'' the Inverted car revisit.''' Just watching Adam go down with the car can be uncomfortable by itself. But imagining yourself in Adam's place, in a car that's sinking for real is some serious nightmare fuel. Taken UpToEleven with the Turn Turtle revisit. Just watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-eK_cpTsOw this video]] detailing his experience. (Also keep in mind that Adam technically "died" in the experiment. He had to use an emergency air supply, which someone in a real-life situation wouldn't have.)
** In a behind the scenes special, Jamie said that the image of Adam going underwater in the upside-down car [[HypocriticalHeartwarming gave him nightmares the next day.]]
** Adam has stated several times that this was the scariest and most dangerous stunt he'd ever done, as they try not to put themselves in situations where not panicking can make the difference between life and death.

* In a behind the scenes special, Jamie said that the image of Adam going underwater in an upside-down car in the "Turn Turtle Escape" myth [[HypocriticalHeartwarming actually did give him nightmares the next day.]]
** Adam later stated in a web video that this was the most dangerous stunt he'd ever done, as they try not to put themselves in situations where not panicking can make the difference between life and death.

* Jaime seems to be the ButtMonkey of the final season opening shorts, but some of them get downright disturbing considering the program's demographic. The worst offender has to be the one where it implies Adam accidentally crushes Jaime in a car crusher.

* There are two words guaranteed to make long-time fans cringe: "Chicken Hand".

* There are two words guaranteed to make long-time fans cringe: "Chicken Hand".Hand": several chicken thighs sewn together to mimic a human hand -- which is disturbing in itself -- to test the results of an improper grip on a revolver (holding one's thumb against the cylinder gap). It nearly severed the thigh. Worse, this was based on a real incident, the results of which they see in a photo they weren't allowed to show to the camera.

* Jamie's "Lawnmower from Hell". So over-the-top crazy that it actually ''sheared its own blade off'' before they could get the high-spectacle ending they wanted. When was the last time that happened?
