We love busting myths here at Lifehacker, and because of that, we love the show MythBusters. If you do too, the web site MythResults summarises all 271 episodes of the show so you can quickly see what's fact and what's fiction. MythResults summarises each and every one of the over 1000 myths the show put to the test. Everything is organised by myth type in the table of contents (movie myths, household & everyday, food & drink and so on), and each result is explained with a single sentence so you can see the truth immediately. If you want to learn more, however, just click the link and you'll go to the episode's main page. There you can read a full-on summary, including an explanation of the test and the science behind the results. Check it out at the link below and try not to get distracted for hours.
