Perhaps because he's got some myths he'd like to bust (can Adam Savage devise a citizenship test?), or perhaps because Mythbusters is plainly awesome, President Barack Obama will appear on that show in December during the White House Science Fair. According to CNN, Obama said:

If you win the NCAA championship, you come to the White House. Well, if you're a young person and you produce the best experiment or design, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too.

Congrats to our friends Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman for scoring the presiential walk-on, and kudos to the prez for going out of his way to make a big deal about America's young scientists.
