Moved to trivia.

grammar and spelling corrections.
''Brainiac: Science Abuse'' is a British TV series, originally presented by Richard Hammond and now by Vic Reeves, assisted by Jon Tickle (a former ''Series/BigBrother'' housemate) and an army of nameless "Brainiacs", used as human guinea-pigs. The series ran from 2003 to 2008.

It took the part of ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' where stuff went boom and ran with it. There is generally no attempt made at producing scaleable, repeatable experiments to actually determine a result -- it's more along the lines of "Wahey, if you do ''this'' you can make it go bang! This works because there's a sudden release of energy."
