Jamie and Adam Try to Dodge Bullets on 'Mythbusters' (VIDEO)

If you're worried that a sniper might be targeting you, you may have tuned into this week's 'Mythbusters' (Wed., 9PM ET on Discovery) with a glimmer of hope in your heart. The gang decided to see if they could break the Hollywood myth of dodging bullets.
They set up a rig that would shoot a paintball at Jamie Hyneman from a close distance mere milliseconds after Adam Savage fires from a typical sniping distance. It's a good thing, too, as Jamie wasn't able to move fast enough until they reached a distance of 500 yards. Then, he was just able to dodge it.
At that distance and under those perfect circumstances, Adam declared that "There's just no way you could see [a sniper] fire from far enough away to give you a remote chance of dodging that thing." Myth busted, which means you're on your own with your sniper.
