  • ✪ Bathrooms Mythbusters (2017-2018)


[music] Hey Tigers, we know you're excited about moving to Mizzou and we're here to give you an inside look on the bathrooms of your new home. [music] If you flush out the facts, you know that every bathroom at Mizzou is shared. A community bathroom has multiple stalls shared by 15 to 25 people. That works out to be about four people per stall. It's true that suite style bathrooms are shared by fewer people overall but you're still sharing with four people. [music] It's up to you and your suitemates to determine the schedule for using and cleaning of the bathroom. [singing] I hope you enjoyed my soap opera, but you won't have to worry about other people hearing you sing in the shower. Take it from someone who's lived through the experience. [student] I've never had to wait, not once. It seems like everyone's schedules work out to where people shower at different times and some people shower at night, others shower in the morning and with the classes staggered, it's a... You never have to wait for anything. [music] In suite style bathrooms you and your suitemates are responsible for keeping the bathroom picked up. Our staff will come in once every two weeks to clean and disinfect the bathroom, but if things aren't picked up then urine big trouble. Our staff won't clean the bathroom if it looks like it's been hit by a tornado. Our community style bathrooms are cleaned and disinfected by our staff daily. So the bottom line is you won't have to worry about sharing germs with other people on your floor. That would be tear-able. [student] You sometimes see your friends but sometimes you do have the bathroom yourself and there is privacy and it's clean. I see them clean it almost every day. [music] We're coming clean about privacy. It's important to Res Life too. That's why community bathrooms were designed so that each shower stall is separate from the rest of the bathroom by privacy dividers. [music] [lock click] There are a few things you need to know about suite-style bathrooms. The first is that there's no outside access to suite style bathrooms. The next is that they're all lockable. [lock click] It's also important to note that you can't lock out your suitemates. They'll have access to your room as well as your bathroom. [aside] Hey guys what's up? This ensures that nobody accidentally gets locked in the bathroom. [music] In addition to our community style bathrooms, some of our Res Halls have single private bathrooms on each floor. These single private bathrooms have a shower, toilet and sink, just like the ones at home. Some of the bathrooms are accessible from outside the hall much like the ones at home and, depending upon the building, some of the bathrooms are accessible from inside of the community bathroom. In Gateway, the community bathrooms are all individual private bathrooms. There are also three common area sinks outside of each bathroom. All the bathrooms are cleaned and disinfected daily. [student] I like the bathrooms here a lot better than the ones with other buildings because in other buildings they're still setup in stalls like it's open to everything. But here in Gateway, you go in and there's a full door with a lock. You close it, you're in your own private room. [music] Even with regularly disinfected bathrooms, it's always best to wear shower shoes in shared bathrooms. They don't have to be anything special just cheap plastic flip flops work great. No matter what kind of bathroom you have you should put your belongings together in a caddy that you can easily take in and out of the shower or bathroom with you. [student] They clean them every day. I always see people in there cleaning them so it's not dirty by any means. Oh yeah, no. You wear shower shoes. Let's take a look at the different bathrooms Mizzou has to offer. [music] Jalyn, filming this bathroom video has me feeling rather pooped. Hmm, sounds like you need to... wash your worries down the drain. I can't handle all this bathroom humor. I gotta go. Rachel, you never know what you got til it's gone. Toilet paper's a good example.

Episode 249 – "Heads Will Roll"

  • Original air date: November 15, 2017

Airbag Disaster

Myth Status Notes
A passenger in a low-speed car crash with his/her legs up on the dashboard will be killed by airbag. Busted Although the feet and legs suffer extensive and life-altering injury, the injuries themselves are not lethal.

Delayed Casualty

Myth Status Notes
A sword can travel through somebody's neck so quickly that the head will stay on the victim's body. Busted Even a rocket-powered blade did not move fast enough to cut the head off without also causing it to fall off the body.

Episode 250 – "Chimney Cannon"

  • Original air date: November 22, 2017

Killer Chainsaw

Myth Status Notes
A lumberjack can be killed if a bullet has been shot into a tree and the lumberjack's chainsaw catches the bullet when the tree is being cut down. Busted Even a high-powered "Hot Saw" could not cause the bullet to move quickly enough to be lethal.

Chimney Cannon

Myth Status Notes
A burglar who tries to enter a house through the chimney will get shot out like a cannonball when the homeowners turn on the gas fireplace. Busted It was not possible to set up enough back-pressure in normal circumstances to cause the burglar to be shot out of the chimney. When the guys sealed up the firebox to get enough pressure, the chimney exploded instead of launching the burglar.

Episode 251 – "Earthquake Water Heater"

  • Original air date: November 29, 2017

Earthquake Water Heater

Myth Status Notes
A water heater tank damaged by an earthquake can turn into a rocket, destroying the garage it is in then going through the motor-home parked next to the garage. Plausible The horizontally launched water heater destroyed the shed they built to simulate the garage and slammed into the frame of the motor-home. It was determined that if the water heater was aimed up just a little bit, it would have gone through the side of the motor-home, so the myth was deemed plausible.

Dutch Oven Explosion

Myth Status Notes
A camper lets rip a Dutch oven (a fart inside a sleeping bag) when his companion is lighting her cigarette. This results in an explosion. Busted The flammable gas does not stay concentrated enough to cause a fire, let alone an explosion.

Episode 252 – "Rock 'n' Roll Road Rage"

  • Original air date: December 6, 2017

Killer Carp

Myth Status Notes
A silver carp, jumping out of the water, can hit a water skier hard enough to kill him. Confirmed A two-pound fish fired from an air cannon at Buster broke his anatomically realistic neck in several places when the fish hit him in the head at 35 miles per hour.

Rock 'n' Roll Road Rage

Myth Status Notes
Listening to violent or aggressive music will make someone drive more aggressively. Plausible For those already inclined to drive aggressively, listening to aggressive music contributes to more aggressive driving.

Episode 253 – "Invisible Assassins"

  • Original air date: December 13, 2017

Fire Extingisher Nail Gun

Myth Status Notes
A duplex nail fired from a fire extinguisher can disable a bad guy. Busted From the movie, The Bourne Legacy. A nail fired from a CO2 fire extinguisher with only the flow regulator removed was not accurate enough or powerful enough to penetrate the human analog. When a 6 foot (1.8 metres) barrel extension was added to the fire extinguisher, the nail was able to go all the way through the ballistics dummy, but the barrel extension did not show up in the movie, so the myth is still Busted.

Shotgun Chandelier

Myth Status Notes
Light bulbs modified to fit in a shotgun shell with a bag of nuts and bolts around it can become lethal fragmentation-style grenades when the bulbs are turned on. Busted From the James Bond movie, Skyfall. The shotgun shells were ignited by the light bulb filaments, but did not explode, so the shrapnel just fell to the floor when the plastic bags holding it melted.

Shotgun Floorboards

Myth Status Notes
A shotgun shell rigged with a nail to fire from under a floor will kill the person stepping on the board. Busted From the James Bond movie, Skyfall. The shotgun shells fired, but the oak floorboards deflected the shotgun shot and kept Buster from losing his leg.

Episode 254 – "Dead Body Double"

  • Original air date: December 20, 2017

Dead Body Double

Myth Status Notes
In a gun battle, picking up a deceased human body and hiding behind it will stop the bullets still being shot at you from hitting you. Busted Carrying a dead body in a gun fight was plausible, but the human analog did not stop the bullets in any significant way.

Goo Gone Wild

Myth Status Notes
Oobleck can be bomb proof. Busted The oobleck actually increased the intensity of the blast.
