Mythbusters need your help, sock fans
A washing machine-based task is facing the special effects maestros on TV show Mythbusters, who aim to disprove the myth that socks get lost in the contraption.

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, who take on three urban legends or misconceptions in each episode of their popular series, are asking people for socks and similar hosiery so they can truly find out if they get lost in the wash.

The show's producers said: "Did your grandma or Aunt Betty give you some horrible socks for the holidays that you'd like to get rid of? Well, the search to re-gift is OVER! Send them to us!"

Jamie Hyneman has worked with Nike and 7-Up, with Adam Savage lending a hand with Terminator 3, the Matrix sequels and Steven Spielberg's AI.
