Mythbusters uses explosives to answer question: Can you knock someone's socks off?

A complete non-sequiter. The few times I've caught it on, I've enjoyed Discovery Channel's Mythbusters (imdb). In what can only be described as slightly insane, in order to answer the question of whether or not it's possible to knock someone's socks off (CrunchGear), "the Mythbusters crew ignited 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate about a mile outside of Esparto that resulted in an explosion that “was a lot bigger than they expected.”" With windows shattered as far as a mile away, my guess is that the answer is yes.
