Though it has been a long time since Jaime Hyneman and Adam Savage have collaborated, their classic episodes of Mythbusters continue to be relevant each and every day. This is especially true in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, in which one experiment in particular is making its rounds across the web.

The experiment in question comes from Mythbusters’ flu episode, which dispelled the myths and realities of catching the illness. In the experiment, Adam Savage played a person with a runny nose and hosted a 30-minute dinner party to see how many of his attendees would be infected by his germs. Check out the video and be reminded of this at the next dinner party you attend once social distancing comes to an end.
