The MythBusters test the myth that talking to plants makes them grow better. They set up several test groups of bush peas, and all are under the same conditions except the type of sound to which they are exposed.
Professor Philip Brainard creates Flubber and tries to learn more about it. He performs quick tests on the physical properties of Flubber and finds that it is a highly viscous elastomer that can also phase shift between a liquid and a solid. Using observation skills, he also learns that Flubber is moldable, foldable, ductile, and elastic, among other properties.
