Holy crap! Who could have thought a Cannonball could be so destructive!? Ricocheting and going trough walls and whatnot! I hope nothing happens with MythBusters, but they might get to pay a fine or something.

What a weird trajectory. It's good that there were no victims though.

Seriously hate to be in the Olden Era with the Pirates and get hit by one of those.

Lets see they were used to destroy castle walls after catapults went out of style. They could rip through a ships hull with 1 shot (and remember we are talking MASIVE wood used for ships those days) and out the other side, add a chain and they literally cut though a mast wider than your average tree.

Yea those things are deadly.

Hope the show doesnt get canceled because of this.

Worst that will happen is that they have to pay for all damage Caused By the ball

No I think thats pretty much a given. Worst thing that could happen really, show gets cancelled and some family sues the crap out of them.

Haha! Irony at it's finest! (.......). No but seriously, forgot how "stubborn" and unstoppable they were. Like it went through walls and didn't stop etc etc. I knew it was destructive, not so much that it didn't lose it's velocity when mowing down it's targets. I don't usually think about cannonballs and their destructive powers during the day, but I was just reminded of something I actually knew in the back of my head. Cheers!

That's a better explanation of your comment. :devsmile: Because the one before was unflattering of you. And cannonballs.

something tells me they won't be allowed to do stunts like this for a while .... or perhaps not at all.

they really did get lucky that no one was hurt/hit
