As a geek, this was a story I could not pass up blogging about and sharing with those that did not hear the news on NPR yesterday. The fact that the President of the United States wants the Myth Busters to investigate whether Archimedes actually created the first Solar Death Ray Gun is a matter of World and National Security. It has been awhile since anyone has undertaken such a challenge. I can’t wait to see what they come-up with in the Myth Busters episode.
In case you did not get a chance to hear the story, here is a link to the NPR article.
