Mythbusters....Impossible to walk a straight line blindfolded - October 28, 2011, 07:58 AM

Watched my DVR'ed mythbusters last night and was really intrigued by the "Impossible to walk a straight line blindfolded" myth. Anyone actually tried it. Seems like it should of been easy.

Mythbusters is running out of ideas. That's the lamest premise they've had on their show.



NEXT WEEK, ON MYTHBUSTERS... IS WATER INDEED WET, OR NOT?!??!?!

LOL^ yes ive tried it...thats why you learn to get pace count etc in basic.... in the desert you can basically walk around aimlessly for hours since there are few and far landmarks to go off of besides the sun.


I agree though mythbusters is pulling but they have had what 6-7 seasons with 2or3 shows a week and 3 myths per show....not to bad

Uhm....

Don't you learn a pace count in order to measure distance travelled?

Pretty sure it has nothing to do with walking in a straight line, blindfolded or otherwise.

Either that, or I've been doing land nav wrong my entire career.
