Goodbye Mythbusters 2003-2016

It has been a few days but have to admit I am still not quite ready to admit that after 14 years, Mythbusters is no more. This is one of my favorite all time shows, a joy to watch in part because the hosts clearly were enjoying what they did. Often I would learn a new nugget of information, be reminded of a lost childhood fact, or just be memorized at the creativity (and explosions) that were on display. I suspect that before its all said and done that the Mythbusters impact on the next few generations of scientists, innovators and creators will rival that of the moon landing. No matter how you cut it, that is a hell of a legacy to have. Goodbye, it was a privilege to enjoy this show for so many years.
