I've discussed the fact that urban legends are the only things that utterly give me the willies without fail, so I'm not sure why I'm enjoying Mythbusters so much. Maybe it's the fact that the hosts don't take it too seriously. (Unlike TLC's urban legends show, which I just couldn't finish watching.) Perhaps it's the fact that so far I've only seen them investigate some of the more amusing urban myths.
Or maybe it's the fact that they just used the phrase "panty static generator."
