Re: Add "Muzzle" to the list of "Untimely Lifts"

What makes absolutely no sense in the explanation is in their diagram of what happened they claim the cannon ball went through it's intended target, deflected off the hill behind the target and then took the trajectory that caused all the damage. The muzzle lift theory would seem to indicate it did not go through it's target but muzzle lift caused the ball to fly uninterrupted on it's unintended trajectory... A more likely scenario given what happened.

That diagram was the best part of the entire story. (Besides the fact that the poor Shetty's must've thought they were filming a new version of Gunga Din.) Rube Goldberg would've been PROUD of that cannonball, hopping and skipping all over the place, through this and up that, finally ending up in a minivan. Such a mundane ending, though, for a cannonball. A minivan.

So I guess they busted the myth that they actually know what they're doing.

Ya can't make this stuff up.

p.s. Watts is probably busy blowing something up.
