An online video shows a man running in slow motion while drunk on a treadmill recently and being slapped across the face. Apparently the slap is more likely to sober you up than a treadmill. The man sacrificing his body in the name of science was Adam Savage, who, along with Jamie Hyneman, is host of the Discovery Channel's "MythBusters." Savage and his crew employ a lot of technology in their myth busting. And starting tomorrow they'll set out on a tech-y month-long live tour.
