[up][up] I think instead of "professionals," you mean "insured."
This is where the old statement "Shit Happens" comes in

What's the point of being grown up if you can't act childish?
Slightly old but:

According to Adam's twitter, it SOUNDS like they're just not including the accident in the episode.

I'd imagine it'll show up in one of the specials where they go "behind the scenes", this isn't the first time one of their tests ended in property damage, though it's likely the worse offender in that regard.

Following memebase, it's gonna take a while for Mythbuster's to live this one down in the public consciousness. They will be subject to ridicule for quite some time. In internet time (so, probably another month or two).

If I was the guy who had the cannonball crash into my car, I'd collect insurance and also demand I get to meet all the Mythbusters to have them sign the cannonball.

If you weren't injured or had serious house damage, right?

I guess it was unfortunate that the wall that was supposed to stop the cannon failed to work. I'm surprised that it can go so far.

Dammit, Savage! This is what happens when you start rejecting realities and substitute your own!*

Seriously, though, I hadn't heard about this. I'm glad no one was hurt.

I meant the specific person that ended up with the cannon ball. After it tore through a house, it ended up on the floorboards of his car, having smashed the dashboard.

I'd be honored if the Mythbusters perforated my home.

"Ah, what's a little property damage between friends, anyway?"

As they say, "almost doesn't count".
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
