I would like to post comments there, this would be a nice test for them to do, Id like to know for sure :goofy: For those of you who do not know, the MythBusters is a show on the discovery channel 9yes this channel rocks) that test urban legends and myths, to see if they are actually true (Examples are exploding Bug Bombs, Cell Phones Igniting Gas Pumps, Blowing Up Cement Trucks, Shooting Buster the Dummy out of Homemade Cannons). I posted a thread on their message boards. Register there and give this thread some support! I would love to have the answer to this myth finally put under raps.
edit- Can't search for it, either.:p When I entered "CPS 2000" into the search bar, I was greeted with a Link Error 404 page.

. Its scientificaly NOT possible to blow someones eye out with a watergun that does not shoot farther than 15 meters. Its a rumor started by demented kids who skiped basic science classes. Damage nerves on the eyeball, perhaps. But not blow it out. Demonstrators in the past got a firehose blast in their faces from close range and they could still see fine after awhile. The blowing eye out myth is as impossible as the lawsuit of some kid breaking a car window with a soaker.Please post science related ideas for the MythBusters
I think the powers that be would have tested this product, as they test many. Instead of like a helmet, where they test the protection factor, they'd test it in terms of threat factor. If it exceeded a certain "dangerous" PSI, changes would need to be made or it would not be passed as safe. They probably also had a warning that stated "avoid direct eye contact."
