    Sorry, but MythBusters are pair of scammers. Their research is noobish and they do not know what they are doing.

    I would never believe what this people have to say.

    Do your own research before believing what this clowns have to say...

    ok,

    Research has shown that a duck's quack does echo, but it is hard to hear because it is difficult to distinguish the quack from the echo.

    I'm not trying to be a dink, that's just what I've read/watched/heard.

    still a good thread.
