Deadliest Catch captains Johnathan and Junior join the MythBusters to test if a crab pot will drag you overboard to the bottom of the sea if your foot is caught in a coil, if it's better to work a 30-hour grind with no sleep and if crab pots truly are indestructible.

  • Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?

    They should test if King Crabs really do scream as they are boiled alive or if its just the steam escaping from their exoskeletons. I boil mine frozen and presumable dead and they dont seem to scream.

    That’s an interesting question you asked there. However, if kings crabs can scream when they are boiled alive; couldn’t they also scream when they are being frozen alive? A crab that has the ability to scream when it’s boiled to death could probably also scream when it’s freezing to death.

    Does anyone know if the Breaking Bad themed episode of Mythbusters is still going to be a thing?
