    Summary: 
    Disc 3 --- Adam, Jamie and associates investigate whether it is possible to shoot a person's hat off his head, the possibility of using horse power to effect a jailbreak, and if injury could result from puncturing a side air bag while using a lock pick to open a car door. In Big Rig Myths they examine the lethal potential of exploding truck tires for other motorists, whether a car can be driven up a ramp on the back of a truck while both are in motion, and if "drafting," the practice of tailgating a big rig truck, improves fuel efficiency. They then test the ability of yodeling, whip-cracks, and rifle fire to set off avalanches, test if one's tongue will actually freeze to a flag pole in sub-freezing weather, and test whether it is safer to drive in reverse on icy roads. They investigate the relative effectiveness in shielding bystanders from granade blasts of throwing one's body on a live grenade, submersing it in water, and putting it in a refrigerator. They test self-hypnosis as a cure for sea-sickness, for reversing bee-phobia, and for changing eye color. They also demonstrate the combined effects of Mentos and Diet Coke taken internally. And finally they examine the physics of baseballs in flight, the effect of using a bat with a cork core, whether the humidity of a baseball reduces its distance when hit, and if sliding into base actually slows the player down.
    Disc 4 --- Adam, Jamie and associates investigate the potential of cigarette butts as ammunition, the possibility of stopping a moving vehicle by shifting into reverse, if sneezing with eyes open can cause the eyeballs to pop out, if a tennis ball can be used to open car door locks and compare a "Hollywood" car explosion with the real thing. In the Superhero Hour they test the comic book phenomena of using a grappling hook and lift to ascend walls, the ability to leave a permanent impression on a persons face by hitting them while wearing a signet ring, phonebooth costume changes, and taking 90-degree turns in a speeding car using a hook and cable. They then test the color perception of bulls, the effects of heat on bullets in an oven and in an open fire, and the truth of the adage about a bull in a china shop. Revisiting earlier experiments, they once again explore a ninja myth, underwater car escape, potential airbag injury, beating the speed camera, and risk of an exploding RFID tag during MRI examination. In the final episode they test the combustion dangers of a vehicle's fuel tank leaking a trail of fuel and a leaking powder keg's trail of gunpowder. They also investigate the dangers of using a defibrillator on a person wearing a bra with an underwire and on a person with nipple piercings.
