MeFi's own Adam Savage here. I'm tasked with busting some "Old West" myths. And we're light in the idea department on this one.
Now we've already done a whole bunch of sharpshooting myths, and gunslinger myths, and they still want more!
I'm asking the hive mind: are there any myths you can think of regarding cowboys or indians or anything to do with the old west. (cue black humor about the donner party etc.)
All suggestions taken seriously. Mostly.
