  2. 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.

    she blinded me with science

    Kari Byron spoke to Mother Jones recently on what it's like being the Chick on Mythbusters, what her inner twelve year old would think about what she's doing now, and how babies and science are totally compatible. You just might have to ask your doctor a lot of unexpected questions.

  6. The Secret World of Punkin Chunkin, Science Channel’s Thanksgiving Special

    Smuggling! Cloning! Pumpkin theft! Chunkin' is a lot weirder than we thought.

    Science Channel is airing their annual Punkin Chunkin special Thanksgiving night at 8:00PM ET. If you're not familiar with it, it's a show about people who build machines that hurl pumpkins as far as possible -- some nearly a mile. It's a fun look at physics and engineering, but we went to event this year and found it was actually a whole lot more.

  8. 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.

  9. Gillette Teams Up With Geek Celebs to Wonder About Superman’s Shaving Techniques [Video]

    My guess? He flies backwards around the world until his beard shrinks back into his face.

    It might not have occurred to you while watching the Man of Steel trailer that since Clark Kent is depicted as having a beard in one shot, at some point he had to learn how to shave -- which would probably be incredibly difficult considering the strength of his hair follicles. Razor company Gillette has definitely picked up on this, of course. They've launched a tie-in marketing campaign to postulate about how the Last Son of Krypton manages to look so clean-shaven all the time, and they've enlisted the help of Bill Nye, Mayim Bialik, Kevin Smith,and the Mythbusters to do it.

  10. 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
