As a nerd of some note, I’ve long been a fan of the Mythbusters, using science to examine the world around us and maybe blow some stuff up in the meanwhile.  With the last episode of the show airing this weekend, I’m a bit saddened to have one less fave-rave show, but at least I have the memories of science and ‘splosions (and the lovely Kari, which doesn’t hurt at all), leading us to today’s Mythbusters memorial query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has left explicit instructions that my mortal remains be placed in a cement mixer and blown up, as seen on TV, asking: What’s your favorite Mythbusters experiment, moment or myth-adventure?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    Call it cliche, but my whole family has always been partial to when they blew up the cement truck. Sure, it’s not their biggest boom, but it was kind of a special moment, you know?
