Crucial to sustaining that infectious creativity is what Byron calls the ability to "Crash and Learn." In simple terms, it's the ability to learn from your mistakes, and it's something Byron seems to have learned the hard way, "With Mythbusters, that was our daily business. We were given problems that were beyond my general knowledge, so we had to get things wrong over and over and over again." She recalls a time when she had to build a flying guillotine, "I failed over and over and over and over, but I had so much fun in the mix, trying to come up with the right thing, was all part of the process. I feel like I learned so much about mechanics just from trying to create this gruesome device, that they just stayed with me. That was my class that day. Learning just how to do it."
