    No one hurt. It missed the water filled target, went into a house, up the stairs, then out the other side of the house then into a parked minivan.

    I hope they show the segment. Since they're about teaching as well as just stunts it would be a good chance to show what went wrong and how they'll protect against it in the future.

    I'm looking on Google Maps now trying to see if I can figure out where the range is with respect to where the cannon ball went. The exit hole was pretty clean, looking like it was still going at a fair velocity, and it still went into a car across the street.

    Assuming this doesn't kill the show... maybe they'll stop focusing so much on explosion/ballistic-type myths. I guess that stuff is popular, but I'm pretty tired of it myself.
