When you sneeze, your eyeballs will pop out if you don't close your eyelids. That's why you automatically do.

You could tape someone's eyes open and make them sneeze then stare on in disbelief as the myth proves true resulting the deocularization of your unwilling compariot.

or something like, the falling rate of a feather without any air below will have the same falling speed as a.... tennis ball falling onto the ground?

@Ubern00b-no it doesn't have to be complex. Something as stupid as brown noise would also work (but been covered by the teacher).

</div>MythBusters actually tested this myth twice. The first time, they proved that running in the rain made you wetter than walking... but a friend told me that on an other episode they received mails, in which fans told they weren't convinced... they then disproved the first result and confirmed that running is the driest way to travel when the sky is dark...

So far I could do the "drop a penny from tall building could kill unlucky pedestrian" but it would be hard to capture the data so...<br />
<br />
I'm still open for suggestion. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

will an electric shock from a plug kill you?<br />

Thats an easy one. Just cram your finger into a socket and see what happens.
