The first time the myth was tested, the miniature bridge was flawed enough in its design to get an inconclusive answer, but with this test, just testing the natural resonant frequency of a simple wooden bridge, resulted in a plausible conclusion, but it is very improbable.
(This myth was retested for this episode but it ultimately did not air.)
When re-visited, frozen chickens could penetrate sets of layered glass panes better. Listed as Plausible because it’s uncertain the original myth actually occurred.
They retested using slow-frozen bullets that were stronger than the ones they used previously. The bullets simply vaporized when the trigger was pulled.
The battery of retests the MythBusters performed reaffirmed their original Busted verdict.
The aerosol cans didn’t explode inside a car after sitting in the sun for hours. Both aerosol and cola took temperatures of over 300 °F (150 °C) to blow.
The different types of inflatable brassieres tested proved capable of maintaining their integrity even at altitudes fatal to humans.
Upon retesting the myth on an electric fence it was found to be confirmed, but the rail was still Busted. Distance was the factor, as the urine stream breaks up less at the close range needed for urinating on the fence than urinating on the third rail, thus ensuring a direct line of current between ones body and the electrical source.
When Adam retested the myth, he reported some discomfort, describing it as a slight flu-like feeling, but he nonetheless survived.
