MythBusters Cannonball

(Disclaimer: Yes, I'm sure the hosts are not solely responsible for safety measures.)

Of course the second team were the ones responsible for this mishap!
Not sure why, but this figures:

"Savage and Hyneman were not present at the Alameda County bomb ordnance range - which the show has used for years and is nearly 1,000 yards west of the Shetty home - when the cannon fired at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday.

"They said the three other stars of the show -- Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara -- had been 'calibrating' a homemade cannon, firing a ball made of either steel or cast iron into water barrels and a brick wall to make sure it had the same power as a historical cannon."

At least Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman are taking full responsibility for this. Good on them.
