This is a great Mythbusters to show around winter time, when everybody seems to be getting sick. The Mythbusters test whether a sneeze can really fly at 100 miles per hour and then show just how far nasal secretions can spread through casual contact. In this episode, Kari, Grant, and Tory investigate if flying glass can decapitate a head in a tornado. Science topics discussed are germ theory, nasal secretion output, nasal irritants, viral contamination, personal hygiene, viral replication, kinetic energy, the kinetic energy equation, mass, velocity, and the Fujita Scale.
