  1. MythBusters‘ Adam Savage Talks Privilege, Women in STEM, and Gamergate: “Shit’s Tough for Girls”

    Confirmed.

    "All anyone wants is to be happy and to be fulfilled [...] And it’s genuinely sad that [GamerGaters] feel so unfulfilled that they feel the drive to push their lack of fulfillment outwards. Right? ‘I want to deny things to you — because I feel denied.’ That’s terrible. The moment you’re trying to hurt other people, whether with words or physical violence — there’s something deeply wrong with you."

  2. Things We Saw Today: Who Needs Hogsmeade, Oreo May Have A Butterbeer Flavor

    If these taste remotely like rootbeer I'm calling shenanigans.

    Someone alerted us to these cookies via e-mail, but there's no confirmation yet from Nabisco if this package is real or just photoshopped by someone with a Mirror of Erised.

  3. Take a Tour of Adam Savage’s Pop Culture-Packed Workshop In Google Street View

    It's the best episode of Hoarders ever!

    First off, can we all agree that the phrase "Man Cave" is generally kind of dumb? That said, I'm willing to let Adam Savage call his studio in San Francisco whatever the hell he wants, because it is every nerd's dream. Now with the help of Google Street View, you get to see every nook and cranny for yourself.

  4. The Doubleclicks’ “Fake” Geek Girl Video Has Nothing to Prove

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    At the beginning of this month girl nerd band and sister act the Doubleclicks asked the lady geek community (with help from some special guest stars like Kelly Sue DeConnick, Marian Call, Wil Wheaton, Paul and Storm, Adam Savage and more) to help them make a music video, and it just might put a tear in your eye. Previously in The Doubleclicks

  5. Adam Savage Outlines the Process of Making His Amazeballs Admiral Ackbar Costume

    We're showing a lot of restraint by not just typing "IT'S A TRAP!" in all caps here.

    The man beneath that Admiral Ackbar costume is none other than Mythbuster and friend of Geekosystem Adam Savage. Having top-notch fabrication skills and access to some of the best special effects minds around is bound to help one's cosplay game, but seriously, this is some next-level stuff. Savage showed off his costume on the floor of San Diego Comic Con and outlined its creation on Tested.

  6. Somehow This Happened In Real Life: A Little Girl Befriends a Robot [VIDEO]

    Awwwwww

    This may be the sweetest video to come from San Diego Comic-Con so far. Watch as a little girl, complete with a superhero cape, cautiously befriends the Stan Winston Studios giant robot that Adam Savage and Wired revealed this year at Comic-Con. The 9 foot tall iron giant, if you will, towers over little Zoe and promises to protect her, making me wish that a movie about such a pair, filled with adventure and engineering, would grace our screens.

  7. The Mythbusters Explain How Superman Shaves, Try to One-Up Bill Nye

    The Mythbusters' theory on how Superman shaves might be a little far-fetched, but I still had a great time talking with them about it.

    In 2003 my mother said, "There's this new show you'd probably like. It's got people doing science and explosions to test myths." She was of course talking about Mythbusters, and she was absolutely right about my liking it. I love it when people do science and explosions, and I'm pretty confident most folks that read Geekosystem do too. That's why I jumped at the chance to interview Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage for Gillette's How Does He Shave? campaign.

  8. The Mythbusters and Chef Traci Des Jardins Help Chris Hadfield Make a Space Burrito

    Food options are limited in space, so the Mythbusters and Traci Des Jardin helped Chris Hadfield piece together a space burrito.

    Space food is the kind of thing that's fun to eat if you happen to be visiting NASA, but probably not something you want to have every day. For astronauts in space, they don't have much of a choice beyond freeze-dried and shelf-stabilized menu items. While Chris Hadfield was still in space Tested.com enlisted Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, and chef Traci Des Jardins to help Hadfield come up with an original space recipe. The result: The Traci Spacey Burrito. Looks tasty.

  9. What Did the Mythbusters Invent for Chris Hadfield in Space?

    Remember that scene in Apollo 13 where the NASA engineers had to come up with a way for the astronauts to fit a square filter in a round hole using only things already on board the craft? The Mythbusters did that for Chris Hadfield when he was still on the International Space Station. They weren't fixing an air filter, but they took care of an important problem

  10. Room for One More? Mythbusters Prove Leonardo DiCaprio Could Fit On the Raft In Titanic

    The ending of the movie Titanic has been a cinematic bone of contention for the ages. Relationships have been shattered and children disowned as a result of the senseless bickering between the two camps --  folks who take Cameron at his word that the wardrobe door could not have preserved the lives of both star-crossed lovers, and other people (yours truly included) who have always believed that there was pretty clearly room for two people, and the whole ending was a piece of idiocy that ruined an otherwise excellent film. Thanks to the Mythbusters crew, we can now shorten the title of the second camp -- you can just refer to us as "the people who were right." Want proof that both Jack and Rose could have lived to see another day, bet married, and probably grow sick of one another in due time? Let's go to the tape.

  11. Science Beats James Cameron: Titanic’s Death Scene Officially Mythbusted

    and let it be known

    Annoyed movie-goers (and director James Cameron) have argued this one for years but we can finally put it to rest. The Mythbusters crew (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman) tried to figure out if Titanic's Rose and Jack could both have survived. Cameron may think he had the last word but I think that's best left to this guy. (via MTV) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  12. Mythbusters Pose With Freakishly Realistic Miniature Versions of Themselves

    Well, that's unsettling: The Internet has unearthed this photo of Mythbusters stars Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage posing with pint-sized simulacrums of themselves. A myth-busting experiment about cloning gone horribly wrong? A terrifying portent of things to come? Apparently not. Eagle-eyed Redditors point out that the lifelike masks were made for a segment on their show, and have been incorporated into the duo's live act where kids from the audience are disguised as the Mythbusters. While that's some good knowledge to have, it doesn't make this image any less unsettling.

  13. Mythbusters Hosts Will Produce, Judge a Rube Goldberg Competition Show

    Don't Try This At Home

    If you like Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, you're going to be very happy about this: the Mythbusters hosts have announced that they'll be producing a new show for Discovery called Unchained Reaction. The duo will serve as judges on the new show, which will pit two teams against each other while they build the most awesome Rube Goldberg device. And it looks like ... yes. Yes, I read that right: there might be guillotines.

  14. Yes, Adam Savage Sings I Will Survive To Neil Gaiman in the Voice of Gollum For The Second Time

    This Makes Sense

    You may be interested to know that you can now purchase the Lord of the Rings movies in Blu-ray. The theatrical editions are priced at $65, where the full extended will set you back $120, depending on where you purchase it. Amazon is offering it for $70, for example. Video in this post? There's no video in this post. I just wanted to tell you about some blu-rays. (via Topless Robot.)

    Almost Totally Excellent

    Throw Carl Sagan or a velociraptor in this somehow, and the internet might explode. (via io9.)

  16. Wil Wheaton “Quits” w00tstock

    Well, it's been a week since Dry-Erasegate, when an ad agency TheCHIVE fooled the internet for a few hours with a series of photographs that supposedly emailed around an office when a certain HOPA decided to take her leave. So the viral quit was a viral hoax. What's next? Why, meta-tastic riffing on the original meme, of course. From Wil Wheaton, Paul and Storm, and a special guest? Why, this is the internet, isn't it? We reproduce the beginning of Wil Wheton's answer to the Dry-Erase Quitter below.

  17. Mythbuster Adam Savage Sings “I Will Survive”… As Gollum [Video]

    Sometimes things just come together perfectly, and it's like an episode of Blue's Clues gone absolutely, perfectly right. Well, let's see, Blue, do you want to put the Adam Savage on top of the Gollum then make both listen to "I will survive? Choir of children: "Noooooo!" Well, should we have Gollum and Adam Savage fight while "I Will Surive" plays in the background? Choir of children: "Noooooo but that would be awesoooome!" Should we have Adam Savage sing "I will Survive" in the voice of Gollum to a crowded room? Choir of children: "Yeeeeees!" Good, because that's just what happened:
