I’ve been watching Alton Brown on The Food Network for years, and when I saw him tweet about his day at the range today I was pretty surprised. Apparently he’s also a pilot and motorcycle enthusiast.

I love watching Mythbusters, especially when they do a segment that has to do with guns! (check out Kari with a .50BMG) I’ve always wondered if any of their mythbusting attempts have ever ended in disaster, well it looks like one of them did.
