MythBusters is a great show. Those guys are hilarious and smart. I enjoyed this episode because I like both shows and to be able to show some of the myths of crab fishing was interesting. I actually meet Tory at the SFO airport a couple of years back. He was a nice guy. http://www.riunemploymentlawyer.com
