Default Blendtec going to be on History Channel!

So, I'm sure you have all heard about Tom Dickson and how he uses the Blendtec Total Blender to destroy just about anything.

Well, On Thursday, March 6 at 8 PM Eastern time, Moderen Marvels on the History Channel will have a spot about the Blendtec Total Blender being the worlds toughest blender.

Modern Marvels : World's Strongest III Airs on Thursday March 06 08:00 PM

Witness some mind-blowing feats of strength starting with the world's most powerful elevators--one lifts fighter jets, the other lifts a giant stage filled with acrobats. Discover the world's strongest tire and the monster mine machine it rolls with. Take a 35-foot drop on the world's strongest mountain bike. See the world's strongest land transport vehicle that carries the Space Shuttle. Finally mix some drinks or chop a telephone into dust with the biggest and strongest home blender you've ever seen.
Pretty cool stuff!

For those who don't know about Will It Blend, check out some of these videos: http://www.willitblend.com/videos.aspx?type=unsafe

Yep, the cheapest model is $400, and that is the one used in the videos I think. Look at that power. 1500w motor, thats more than your average computer power supply.

The expensive model is $800... Imagine what it could do.

Hmm.. You would be better off checking your local TV listings. I myself am too lazy to look up your time zone.

Just watched it for the first time. It's hilarious. I love how Chuck Norris doesn't blend.

There is only one thing more powerful than the Blendtec Total Blender. And that is Chuck Norris.
