* [[HeyItsThatSound Hey It's That Music]]: Sharp-eared gamers may recognize one of the musical snips they sometimes use between shots as coming from the soundtrack of ''VideoGame/MechWarrior 2''.

(If you want to know the specific moment, it's after the second test in the Hypermiling myth, you very briefly hear the same beat used in "Ambushed", the song for the missions Wolf Trial 4 and Iron Piston)

* EditedForSyndication: The "rough cut" of each episode is about 52 minutes long, but in the US, those episodes get edited down to 42-45 minutes. Most of the cut material winds up on the website. In one first-season episode, most of the "Octopus Pregnancy" segment (including ''all'' the testing) was chopped out of the US release. Adam has said that the US versions of the episodes tend to cut out the punchlines of his jokes.

Additionally, episodes from earlier seasons are often re-edited to be aired as part of the kid-friendly ''Head Rush''.

* NoExportForYou: Unsrprisingly, ''Laws Of Attraction'' did not air in several conservative markets overseas due to it's content being deemed too risque by the local censors.

* ShortRunInPeru: Though the show is made in America, the episode "Plane Boarding"/"Bite the Bullet" aired overseas two full years before it finally aired in the United States. A few other episodes were similarly delayed (including Traffic Tricks), though no others were delayed for that long.

** One instance that [[GoneHorriblyWrong went horribly wrong]]] involved a prank in which Adam was shocked with an electric fence battery left over from a previous myth. A producer forced the build team to do it, and Adam was most definitely not amused. Neither, really, was anyone else. That particular producer "left the show" not long afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: A few cases with children, such as the "Taking Candy from a Baby" myth (turns out crying is one of the baby's greatest defenses) and plenty with animals, such as the goats they couldn't get to faint (though one did [[GroinAttack punch Tory in the balls]]), the skunks they couldn't get to spray them, and the crocodiles they couldn't get to chase them. Their experience with uncooperative ducks while trying to see if a duck's quack really has no echo is also an example, resulting in a recurring clip of Jamie holding a duck in a threatening manner.
