Why I Love Jamie Hyneman

I know, it's been awhile since I've posted anything Mythbusters on this blog. Or in Spanish... Cazadores de Mitos.

Recently YouTube held a live event in San Francisco which they streamed out over the internet. They had lots of famous guests and infamous ones too - some the creators of those viral videos that become a big hit were there too.

It's the ultimate stress relief. One can totally shed all the tensions of the day by watching Jamie and Adam blow stuff up.
