Everything seems a bit bigger in Alaska, even the myths.
I received an e-mail press release this morning from Mike Miller at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center about a visit by the "Myth Busters" TV show folks later this week. Apparently, Alaska has a couple myths that need some busting.
The center will be closed to the public on Thursday for filming. It seems the Busters need some footage of the conservation center's big bull moose to go along with their work on a segment about "is it wise to speed up or slow down if your car is going to be in an unavoidable collision with a moose?" Hey, this myth stuff might help save lives.
Another Alaska myth ready for some busting is about "cabin fever." I always thought the best way to beat cabin fever is to not stay indoors for months at a time. I guess we'll have to see what the experts – including show hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman – have to say about it.
There was no information on when the episodes will air.
