Question on Episodegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
We fell asleep before we could see the end of the episode where the Long Brothers were competing against the UK team to build a car smasher in the "World Series" episode. Who won? Thanks.

The Amereican's won. The Megalomaniacs little hydraulic press was doing a fine job of crushing their mini. until the unstoppable forces of nature destroyed it. I.E. The immortal words of Newton, the smartest Brit., who ever lived: For every action there's an equal and opposite reaction. The downward force that was crushing the mini was also exerting an upward force that tore their hydraulic press to pieces.

I thought the Brits had the Long Bros. beat for sure, at first. The Long bros. car went from being crunched (didn't see smashed) to smushed, real fast in the editing. That car was pulverized. Hydraulics have many hidden possible failings. I've learned that.
The Brits are burning up the air waves over here so much that I barely detect the accents anymore!
