“Mythbusters” Dickhead Accused of Raping His Sister 40 Years Ago

I must say: I’m skeptical about all of this.


Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage has been hit with a lawsuit filed Tuesday alleging that he raped his young sister for years when the two were children in the 1970s.

Miranda Pacchiana alleges that Savage subjected her to years of sexual abuse when she was between the ages of seven and ten when she lived in her family home in Sleepy Hollow, New York, the New York Post reported. “Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage, would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse,” said the papers filed in Westchester.

Pacchiana, 51, alleges that Savage, who was between the ages of nine and 12 at the time, named himself the “raping blob” and tried to pass off the abuse as a game between the two.

Pacchiana filed her lawsuit under the New York Child Victims Act, which recently opened a one-year period allowing victims to file lawsuits concerning decades-old accusations that have exceeded the statute of limitations. “The prolific abuse by Mr. Savage as alleged in the Complaint has caused irreparable damage to my client that she will live with for the rest of her life,” Pacchiana’s attorney said in a statement. “Today is the first step in the direction of healing and justice.”

This guy is weird, but I doubt he raped his sister 40 years ago. If he did, it doesn’t matter, because you can’t prove something that happened 40 years ago, so it’s totally outside of the bounds of anything that matters to the legal system.

However, in the post-Harvey world, he can literally be convicted of this and sentenced to prison. He won’t be sentenced to prison in this case, because it’s a civil suit, but this woman has all of the evidence the accusers of Harvey Weinstein had, which was zero.

If a court feels that she is really good at crying, or that he seems “creepy” – maybe they’ll show the jury a picture of his deformed penis – then he can lose this case.

This is the new reality. Women’s word is considered a form of physical evidence of a crime.

When history records the total collapse of reality in the year 2020, it will start with Harvey Weinstein. That’s when society officially said, “we can just make our own reality – the only thing that matters is that it feels good!”

It was very important to me, and I wrote an entire series on it.

Of course, now the whole idea of the law existing at all seems quaint.
