Los Angeles, May 7, 2010 - Blasting a Port-a-Potty 100 feet in the air using sugar powered rockets? Constructing home-made night vision goggles that actually work? Pulling off foolproof bar bets backed by scientific theory?

Whether it's creating the ultimate jet propelled shopping cart racer, playing a game of lawn darts using refrigerators, washer dryers and other large objects, or simply discovering why ketchup is so hard to get out of the bottle, "It's Effin' Science" sets out to take a fun, witty and approachable look at science. Hosts Angie, Chad and Marc use simple combinations of everyday objects to construct everything from refrigerator lawn darts to fire hose jet packs. They use the basics of science such as counter balance, friction and centrifugal force to make can't lose bets with unsuspecting participants.

Highlights and recurring segments include:

Effin' Around: The team sets their sights on building a hover board like the one used in "Back to the Future."

Effin' Science Projects: The hosts explore the world of sonic booms.

What's Effin' New: The team tries to create a solar powered mini-bike using solar cells and a rechargeable battery.

Bets You Can't Lose: Angie challenges weight lifters at a gym to several He-Man challenges that test scientific theories such counter balance, center of gravity and structural integrity.
