I have a great deal of skepticism that this actually happened, much less happened this year.

If you're going to make shit up, at least make shit up that's not 15 years old...

Hmm, I didn't think to check snopes. Gotta admit it makes for a good story though.

And the Mythbusters eps they did on that one are great!

As soon as I read the first two sentences of the winner, I guessed which one it was... Yup... JATO. Very old and very false. Thanks for posting anyway.

That Mythbusters episode is great, to actually see a car with a rocket mounted on the roof then later on they tried it in the trunk for another Myth IIRC.
