    A stunt for the TV show "MythBusters" sent an errant cannonball through a California family's house and into a parked minivan nearby.

    Two thoughts come to mind. The first is an NRA shooting safety rule:

    1. Know your target and what is beyond.

    Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt. Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap.

    2. Don't try this at home.

    So, it looks like that old myth about a wooden door being able to stop a cannon ball has been busted. I always did find that one hard to believe.

    There's money to be made there. At least for the lawyers. I'm surprised thst since it is California that you don't see lawyers lined up in the video.

    Cannons are illegal in California.

    They suspended production of the show pending legal issues. Like Discovery needed that!
