The Riddle

From Bay Area Workshops,

Just brimming with props,

In theory science lessons they taught.

Proving claims to be flops,

But they mostly blew up things. A lot.


The Discovery Channel program Mythbusters, was filmed largely in two Bay Area warehouses (one for Adam and Jamie, and one for the assistant crew). The primary warehouse, owned by Jamie Hyneman, was filled with various parts and props from his commercial and special effect work. The show was theoretically about science, engineering and critical thinking, "busting" implausible claims, but they tended to end things with a bang.
