I really WANTED to put this into the general firearm area but, I am afeared of what comments I might possibly get.
This WAS on TV Today...The Show Was MYTHBUSTERS...this is a serious post.
Did anybody see the ending of Mythbusters tonight???? OR...has this one show run in your area of the United States before?
It was called SON OF A GUN....Anyway...Here was the myth that they were checking out & were trying to replicate.
It was during the Civil War...supposedly a soldier was ready to fire his rifle. He was Kneeling ~ Knee up ~ Elbow on his knee as a rifle support & he was THEN SHOT with a minnie ball that passed through the tibia bone of his lower leg & then through his yes, (you guessed it) his....bag of Family Jewels.
The bullet passed through his.........picking up his "D.N.A Material" then traveled approximately another 150 yards before striking a woman in the lower abdomen.
She reportedly became impregnated from the residual "male material" on the bullet. She gave birth to a bouncing baby boy & he was nicknamed..."Son Of a Gun" ~
This story was reported in the various post Civil War newspapers & has be legend ever since.
Anyway...I absolutely could not stay home any longer & I had to go out. I missed the end of the show because they were jumping back & forth between two different myths.
So...what happened???? Fact Or Fiction??? Keeping in mind that it only takes one of the tiny little tadpoles to do the job. Possible or Impossible? I honestly missed the ending.
