Buckminster Fuller was almost the victim of his own success. His Fuller Domes enclosed more space with less material than any other method. They popped up all over the natural landscape, like mushrooms. But the funniness of these domes -- seemingly the work of a hippie dreamer -- helped pigeonhole Fuller. He was really a deep, deep thinker. Here, Adam Savage of "Mythbusters" remembers something Fuller said. It was a way of exampling the fragility of our world.
