This isn't mythbusters, it's some conspiracy site
Date: Friday, April 25 @ 14:44:27
Launched on September 13, 1996, Disinformation was designed to be the search service of choice for individuals looking for information on current affairs, politics, new science and the "hidden information" that seldom seems to slip through the cracks of the corporate-owned media conglomerates. Ironically, it was funded by one of the largest media companies in the world (TeleCommunications, Inc. (TCI), now part of Comcast), who paid for placement on Netscape's then ubiquitous search page.
The site drew immediate attention and (usually) applause from the very same news media that it was criticizing as being under the influence of both government and big business, but the honeymoon was short. Some three weeks after launch the CEO of TCI learned of Disinformation and immediately ordered it closed down. Needless to say, the founding team managed to keep the site going and it has evolved into the largest and most popular alternative news and underground culture destination on the Web. At the height of the dotcom boom The Disinformation Company was acquired by one of the high fliers of the so-called "New Economy", Razorfish; when the bubble burst so did Razorfish and today The Disinformation Company is independently owned with offices in New York City. In addition to this site, The Disinformation Company also has thriving publishing, television and home video divisions.
While many of our projects are deemed 'liberal' or 'progressive' that doesn't mean we close our minds to ideas that are called 'conservative' - far from it. How can someone be truly well informed with only half the story? In the years since we launched the site in 1996 it has gone through several design and editorial changes, evolving from a specialized Web search directory to an original content (text and video) destination to the current format of the most important daily news and information links carefully selected from the "noise" that clutters up the web. The site also has a deep archive of opinion and editorial articles featuring original Disinformation interviews and reporting, plus community areas for users to find other users (a/k/a the personals), post comments and chat about the issues presented on the site and other topics of importance to our community. We also welcome your feedback and of course encourage you to load up on Disinformation goodies in our store.

Err.. what's this have to do with MythBusters?
I used that name because it readily came to mind when I thought about how it really relates to the website.
Looks like a bunch of paranoid crackpot theories to me. You calling this thread mythbusters is pretty misleading. Maybe Disinformation would be a better name since that's the name of the website?
Or maybe I'm just one of the sheeple blinded by the government while I inhale the vapors of chemtrails and prepare to accept the mark of the beast from the genetically altered lesbian feminist Freemason abortionists?
I honestly read your signature links just now. There are some of the things I found in savethemales.ca I can supply links If anyone wants.
"Men -- steer clear of any sexual relationship where you are not in charge."
"Contrary to what we have been taught, women need constantly to be possessed and spiritually fertilized by man's love. Similarly men have a fundamental psychological need to possess a woman with his love."
This one is REALLY good:
"Women need to be competent in the world, but the feminist quest for equality that everyone supports, is in reality a cynical front for a devastating attack on heterosexual institutions (fatherhood, motherhood and the nuclear family.) The elite always uses fronts to manipulate events. Feminists think they are rebels when in fact they are mostly unwitting pawns of a powerful secret elite centered in the Rothschild-Rockefeller-Morgan empires."
Check this homophobia out:
"Homosexuality is a developmental disorder defined by the failure to establish a permanent bond with a member of the opposite sex. Psychologist Richard Cohen, in "Coming Out Straight: Understanding and Healing Homosexuality" (2000) argues it is caused when a male child fails to bond with his father. By having sex with men, the adult gay is trying to compensate for father-love denied in adolescence."
Really dude? I must be one screwed up fag because my dad is like my best friend dude. I love him to death and he doesn't give a damn if I'm gay. It was never really an issue. Maybe if he sent me to a brainwashing heterosexualization camp I'd be a real man. Hey, if it really is a developmental disorder can I have one of those disabled person's liscense plates so I can get a good parking spot when I go to the men's bathhouses?
See, how can anyone take you seriously if you spread stuff like this? And provide links to sites that spread hate and crackpot (or maybe crackhead?) conspiracy theories about the Jews and the Illuminati? The rockefeller-morgan empire? Really?
Can you at the very least see how other people might not put very much credit into this kind of stuff, especially given the source? Come on this stuff is just crazy zappafan!
Excuse me. I've suffered from a crazy overdose. I need to go puke.
"exposing feminism and the new world order"?
.... you ARE kidding, right?
"Seeds? Oh yeah... sometimes I forget they grow from those. I feel like they should hatch or something."
~a friend's observation of my CP's
I would flip through one of those books just for the sake of reading what sort of crackpot stuff they have. But I would never take any of it seriously, nor would I ever buy the book. I might see what the library has one of these days... but probably not.

"The tragedy of life is not that every man loses; but that he almost wins."
"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"
F.Y.I, the term mythbusters is most often used to refer to the popular show on the Discovery Channel of the same title. Hence the comments like "This isn't mythbusters, it's some conspiracy site"
that makes no logic
Or maybe I'm just one of the sheeple blinded by the government while I inhale the vapors of chemtrails and prepare to accept the mark of the beast from the genetically altered lesbian feminist Freemason abortionists?[QUOTE]
Wait a minute ! I didn't know they were genetically altered ! Holy Crap now that's gonna change my mind without a doubt.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and The American G. I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
