MythBusters - Hurricane Windows - Shattering Heads

MythBusters Returns Wednesdays @ 9pm E/P with All-new Episodes! Check out the top 10 strangest myths tested by the MythBusters team: http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-strangest-myths/?smid=YTDSC-YTD-PLP Can a human head dunked in liquid nitrogen freeze so fast it explodes on impact? The MythBusters put a memorable scene from Jason X to the test. When the air turns cold, rain falls from the sky, and the wind blows at 70 mph, is your first thought to close the windows? According to NASA, you should actually leave windows open during a hurricane or strong storm to prevent serious damage to your home. Jamie and Adam head to The University of Florida to test out this theory with the worlds largest portable hurricane simulator. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory tackle two frigid fables involving liquid nitrogen. Using horror movies as inspiration, the trio recreates the famous scene where the villain dunks the victims head in liquid nitrogen for five seconds and then shatters it on the counter! Then, they investigate a very unusual legend that if true, could potentially ruin your Christmas. Supposedly if a large amount of liquid nitrogen leaks into your Christmas tree, it will snap-freeze, expand and explode the tree! With their customary diligence, flair for danger, and a whole truckload of liquid nitrogen, the team sets out to confirm or deny this incredible tale.
