So the Prez guested on Mythbusters (frankly one of my favorite programs) on Wednesday night, December 8, and asked head Mythbusters Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to take another look at the infamous story that Archimedes figured out a way to set fire to the sails of attacking Roman ships. (We got a look at their meeting with the President right there in the White House--very impressive. They clean up nicely). Adam and Jamie, who had already looked at this myth in Season 4, took another stab at the problem. If you missed this episode, it airs again on December 12 at 9 p.m., 8 Central time, on the Discovery Channel.
