This old popcorn machine, is supposedly the fastest popcorn maker in the world. Mythbusters a science program on the Discovery Channel,
decided to put this machine to the test.
I have watched Mythbusters take onmany urban myths.
This is one of the shows I couldn’t wait to see. Does this
machine make the fastest popcorn in the world? Food Network TV
Chef Alton Brown, made a guest appearance on the show
to find out.
The Chinese media and the state-run TV channel weren’t
pleased at all with the show.
Video footage of this created a substantial reaction in the Chinese media (including the state-run TV channel CCTV) that ridiculed the unnecessary– and some claim ignorant — precautions taken by the show’s hosts.
I really think the youtube comment that “Americans are stupid” is foolish.
A big part of Mythbusters, is that they do blow things up, and suit up
in protective gear. You expect that something will get blown up. Otherwise
its not a true Mythbusters show. Its not reality TV, its meant to be
entertaining and fun.
