  1. Omg, that Mythbusters clip is horrifying! Just the way that helmet collapsed is amazing. Slightly startled to see how excited they all were, given what it means really happened to any of the poor humans it happened to to create the ‘myth’.

    Great caustic stuff guys!

    1. I found the most unsettling part was how long the effects took to play out.
      Listening to the cast I thought it would be a pretty quick process but that was what 20-30 seconds of squeezing? Now I have the horrible notion of a diver living just long enough to see his own viscera bubble up into his helmet Blurgh!

  2. damn, not much gets me but I hadda put down my applesauce for a second watching that mythbusters clip.
    on a good note the intermission song is definitely in my top five, I’ve been listening to it on repeat since monday.

  3. Hey guys! So, a callback to the flatulence episode… if diving can affect pressure in your system, and you can expel flatus by pressure in your blood, does that mean that people who dive a lot will also be very flatulent?
