It's been interesting to watch the top search keywords for this site evolve over time. There was a bit of pride when my top keyword was 'gollum', which was related to a photo of gollum that I had posted to one of my entries. There wasn't nearly as much pride when the Khleo generics fan club hijacked my Holes review. Befuddlement turned to slight disgust when my top keyword was 'species iii girl comic-con in box'. In recent months, my Mythbusters posts have each taken their turns in the top keywords list. While I'm happy to see that people searching for "Archimedes Death Ray" may find something useful in my show notes, I'm a bit bothered that Scottie Chapman -- blond, tattooed, female , welding member of the build team -- has spent several months in the top spots. I would even be tempted to write a rant about this, but parakkum has already saved me the effort, pointing me to this quotable rant written by someone empathetic to this specific vexation :. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the number one referrer to this here blog are search requests for "Scottie Chapman.

A former horse trainer, video-game tester and graveyard-plot telemarketer, Scottie Chapman is the MythBusters mistress of metal. Trained in welding, machining and metal fabrication she has built, burnt and bashed everything from bridges and amusement-park rides to seaplanes and race cars. In the course of her career Scottie's worked in set-building, carpentry, model-making and architectural restoration; she's also taught high-school metal-fabrication and studied special-effects makeup. Her building talents have been used by San Francisco's famous industrial performance-art collective, Survival Research Laboratories. A passionate snow boarder, Scottie loves gardening and tending her prized pet koi. She's also raised three orphaned baby squirrels, who come to visit her back yard each morning for breakfast. Plus, she can belly dance and fire dance — often at the same time. Beyond all that, Scottie really loves getting behind the wheel of her Lincoln Mark IV race car and competing in full-contact auto races.

The series was transmitted by numerous international broadcasters, including SBS Australia first-run episodes, with repeat episodes shown on 7mate Australia , and other Discovery channels worldwide. The show's hosts, special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman , used elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, myths, movie scenes, adages , Internet videos, and news stories. Planning and some experimentation took place at Hyneman's workshops in San Francisco; experiments requiring more space or special accommodations were filmed on location, typically around the San Francisco Bay Area and other locations in northern California , going to other states or even countries on occasion when required. During the second season, members of Savage's and Hyneman's behind-the-scenes team were organized into a second team of MythBusters "The Build Team". They generally tested myths separately from the main duo and operated from another workshop. This arrangement continued until August , when it was announced at the end of " Plane Boarding " that Tory Belleci , Kari Byron , and Grant Imahara would be leaving the show. Savage and Hyneman subsequently hosted the final two seasons alone. The show aired its final episode on March 6, MythBusters refers to both the name of the program and the cast members who test the experiments.
