Feet . Again, from the 2010 season, Kari, Tory, and Grant wanted to know if that old idiom, "cold feet", is actually true. They made Tory fly in a jet, and his feet got a little colder. They put Grant's head in a glass box, and had tarantulas walk all over his face. His feet got 15°F colder. Then, Kari, though she is a vegetarian, was forced to eat live bugs. Her feet's temperature also dropped by 15°F. They thought that this should be ruled as plausible.
Cannon. From 2010, this was to see if it is possible to make a working cannon out of leather. Grant, Kari, and Tory first wrapped leather around a cannon, but decided to make an all-leather cannon. It did not work that well, and it was destroyed after a few shots. This was absolutely busted.
Kari. In this episode from season 3, in 2005, the whole team all got together to test the myth that during the Civil War, the Confederates created a rocket missile that traveled over 100 miles. They created the missile and gun cotton themselves. The result was that the myth was totally busted.

Plausible. In this episode from season 4, Jamie and Adam tested to see if it is possible to make a crossbow out of nothing but paper, elastic from your underwear, and food trays for an arrowhead. Adam and Jamie had a competition to see who could make the best paper crossbow, and Adam won. After taking many shots with their self-made paper crossbows, they decided that this myth should be plausible.
Plausible . In this episode from season 2, Jamie and Adam tested to see if a sunken boat could be lifted off the sea floor by thousands of ping pong balls lifting it afloat. They tested this by sending ping pong balls through a tube, and under a boat. The results left them to think that the myth should be plausible.
No. In this episode from season 1, Jamie and Adam tested to see if you would be killed if you were hit by a penny that fell from the top of the empire state building. They tested this by making a gun that could shoot pennies, and fired it at a ballistics gel head. The results made the myth absolutely busted.
