According to the San Francisco Chronicle, a stunt done by the crew from the television show "Mythbusters" went awry on Tuesday when  a homemade cannon missed its intended target at a bomb disposal range, sending a cannonball into a neighborhood 700 yards away in Dublin, Calif.

The cannonball crashed through one home, hit another and came to rest after slamming into a minivan, according to the Chronicle story. Nobody was injured, according to the report.
