It's a damned good thing no one was hurt but the show's reputation.

In the news footage I saw, the houses didn't look that old to me.

And you have to wonder...did it hurt the show's reputation? Kind of makes me more interested in coming back to the show (I used to watch it "religiously", but just like religion, I grew tired of it). Big Grin

Same here. I have found more fulfilling pursuits of late. Too many books to read, to many TED talks to parse, and too many posts on The Thinking Atheist to read and digest. Oddly, I do not miss MythBusters that much.

Atheism is a non-prophet organisation. Cool
