There were no reports of anyone's socks being blown off though. But even with all of their precautions one miscalculation during a episode led to a test going horribly wrong, which resulted in a cannonball being shot through someone's home.
While testing a myth about cannonballs at the Dublin range in Alameda County, they missed their target. The cannonball then went yards through a nearby neighborhood, traveling as fast as a bullet.

It went completely through the home where a couple was sleeping, hit the roof of another house, and smashed into a window of a minivan before coming to a rest. Miraculously no one was hurt, but it did go to show how dangerous busting myths can be. While filming an episode about the legend of a Civil War soldier who was shot in a sensitive area, leading to the bullet impregnating a women, Discovery censored them from directly saying the scientific word for it.
That forced them to get creative when talking about the myth, with terms like "genetic legacy" instead. But as weird as that restriction might seem, the network was so happy they managed to keep the episode family-friendly, they trusted them to do an entire show about farts.
Because apparently Discovery thought parents wouldn't have a problem with talking about farts. The campaign was designed to help improve decreasing sales, especially after controversy over whether or not the fast food giant's recipes included "pink slime.

While he thought McDonald's food was "good," fans of MythBusters did not feel the same way about him being involved with the company. They were angry and disappointed a respected man of science " sol d out " to help sell unhealthy fast food.
With his walrus-like mustache, black beret, no-nonsense approach, and stoic face, it's hard to imagine a time in his life when he wasn't in total control. However, that wasn't always the case and it led to a very difficult time during his teenage years. In a interview, Hyneman was asked if a "hands on" approach to science as a child led to him getting in trouble with his parents and teachers. Rather than sharing an expected story or two about setting things on fire like Adam Savage did, Hyneman described himself as a "problematic kid" who left home at only the very young age of 14 to hitchhike around the country.
Who knows how much that difficult time period led to him becoming the serious adult viewers came to love on the show. One of the show's most memorable--and most peculiar--contestants was Christopher Hackett, who didn't win, but definitely left a lasting mark with his strange work and personal habits. Hyneman is a master builder and explosives expert. Savage an expert designer of things and experiments, and fearless of danger.
Kari Byron is expert on firearms, explosives, and prop design. Tory Belleci is an expert on rigging, and falling off and onto things. Imahara is an expert on anything that resembles a robot or that uses Pulse Width Modulation.
Rather, they pick a topic that could come from fiction, reality, mythic or not, such as the effects of extra gravity, navigation, jailbreaking, super hero abilities, or weaponry. Then, they come up arbitrarily, I assume it is a design thing with six exemplars, and explore them. The team makes no effort to address these six instantiations of the focal topic uniformly. Indeed, they do quite the opposite.
My Review Of The White Rabbit Project - Greg Laden's Blog
For instance, consider Episode 2 on jailbreaks. This is done with actors though they do show the real before and after mug shots and there is no serious analysis and zero attempt to replicate the event.White Rabbit Project - Official Trailer [HD] - Netflix
This one is jut for fun. A second jailbreak involved over British officers escaping from a Nazi prisoner of war camp. For this escape, the team went into great detail as to how it was done, and took it very seriously, but did not replicate anything. A third case involved two families trapped in East Germany behind the Iron Curtin escaping via a home made hot air balloon.
For this escape, Belleci actually builds a replica of the balloon and gets it off the ground, reveals problems with the technology, teaches how the technology works by demonstration and interviews with one of the original builders as well as a ballon expert, etc.
So that historical escape got the whole nine yards.
