Adam and Jamie embark on an archery odyssey as the MYTHBUSTERS go back in time to recreate a machine that can fire arrows just like a modern machine gun.  According to an ancient Greek legend, Dionysus the Elder of Alexandria created a machine 2,300 years ago that could fire arrows just like a modern machine gun.  It’s an ancient engineering challenge, but for our machine mavens it doesn’t take long until they have an ancient archery prototype.  Will it live up to its historical hype, or turn out to be a Trojan horse?  Meanwhile Grant, Tory and Kari take to the road to test ‘tired’ versus ‘tipsy.’  Each year, thousands of traffic accidents are caused by fatigue, so the team tests whether it is far more dangerous to drive tired than to drive slightly inebriated.  Could commuting without 40 winks actually be more risky than driving tipsy?  Arrow Machine Gun premieres Wednesday, November 3 at 9PM ET/PT.
