ScriptPhD + Discovery Channel Giveaway: Join the MythBusters at Comic-Con!

The ScriptPhD gets down and geeky with MythBusters Grant Imahara and Kari Byron at Discovery's recent 25th Anniversary party in Pasadena, CA. was delighted to join Discovery Channel in celebrating 25 years of science, specials, animals, crazy experiments, and educating the public viewing audience last week in Pasadena, CA. There, we met up with the likes of the MythBusters, Animal Planet, The Science Channel and more to get scoop for our fans and be a proud part of the best pure science television programming on air today. To help Discovery Channel celebrate, is announcing a giveaway and fan contest that you don’t want to miss, especially if you’re a MythBusters fan! For more photographs, party coverage and details on our contest, please click “continue reading”.

As everyone knows, any truly great party starts with an animal. We knew we’d be in for a great evening last Thursday when we saw Animal Planet‘s Dave Salmoni and two of his closest long-necked friends frolicking in the backyard:

Dave and his giraffe. Both are very, very friendly and house-trained.

Inside of the Discovery Channel tent, not only was the science immortalized with geeky conversation, but also with flour and marzipan. Here, two lovely representatives of TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off show their devotion for Discovery programming:

The sweet secret to the ScriptPhD's heart...

While chatting with Grant and Kari of MythBusters , Grant revealed exclusive scoop to A future episode of MythBusters will test whether a car is bullet-proof with phone book pages (really!) and the premiere episode, in which they tried to literally knock a dummy’s socks off,

will be repeated. They got so many great suggestions, input and experimental alternatives from fans, that the Busters will attempt to bust this myth again! Not only was I fortunate to hang out with MythBusters Grant and Kari, I got cozy and comfy with the real star of the show, Buster. As any fan of the show knows, before the MythBusters can try out their experiments and theories, they must be tested and safety-proofed with a dummy. Meet the dummy:

Well, he's not much to look at, but he's so manly and brave!

Finally, we got terrific environmental advice from actor, activist and reality star Ed Begley, Jr. (His show, Living With Ed airs on Planet Green.) We asked Ed what his one non-green indulgence is, and he sheepishly admitted that it was the sometimes unavoidable luxury of flying an airplane. However, he suggested a terrific resource when flying (or doing anything that will leave a relatively large carbon footprint) that is not only environmentally-friendly, but largely affordable: a Terra Pass. For a small donation each time you fly, say $30 in exchange for a flight from Los Angeles to New York, TerraPass will fund organizations and projects that reduce emissions, offset the carbon footprint you are leaving, and make our world more sustainable and eco-friendly! Ed also reminded me that big change starts with small actions. Replace the incandescent light bulbs in your home with fluorescent ones. Weather-proof your windows and doors to reduce your heating bill. Recycle. These are activities you don’t have to be a celebrity or wealthy to implement, and they have a BIG impact!
