Did a Medieval Chinese astrologer make it into space by strapping rockets to his chair and setting them off? Just how hard IS it to find a needle in a haystack? Can you in fact go insane by having water drip on your forehead?
These are just a few of the myths, urban legends, and improbable sayings that the Mythbusters try to figure out.
