Why I Can't Be Objective About Adam Savage of "Mythbusters" and His Sister's Rape Allegation

Both Miranda Pacchiana and her specific allegations are compelling and credible, yet I keep looking for holes.

Warning: This article contains graphic discussions of childhood sexual abuse.

Mythbusters host Adam Savage is a harmless goofball. Mythbusters host Adam Savage raped his sister.

Is it even possible for both of these statements to be true?

The former is too deeply embedded in my head for me to really doubt it after nearly two decades of watching Adam Savage build impressive and absurd toys, costumes, and machines—charmed by his gleeful enthusiasm for nerd culture and the build process. The latter is based on credible allegations that his sister, Miranda Pacchiana, has put forth in a new lawsuit made possible by New York's Child Victims Act.

Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have called it quits after five months of dating, according to several sources, but the split is said to be 'amicable.'

Back in March, things looked precarious when Patrick was photographed in Cabo San Lucas with a pretty girl who he later identified as a friend's girlfriend.

The couple seemed to have worked things out when he returned to Los Angeles but evidently the romance never got back on track. Patrick went to Coachella without Miley the past two weekends, and while no new scandals ensued, he seemed to be enjoying himself.

Meanwhile, Miley was in Ohio at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame over the weekend, while Patrick hung out with his dad, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

And as if to make a statement of independence, Miley has stepped up her risqué Instagram posing in recent days. It could be her way to punish her ex for cheating on her in Mexico, or it could simply be Miley having fun in her own provocative way.

Before we get out our hankies, who among us suspected the Miley and Patrick romance to be a clever public relations deal that raised both of their images to new levels of approval?

Miley needed to be taken seriously as a nice girl you could take home to meet the parents, whie Patrick needed to launch his faltering modeling career.

Is that too cynical? Never mind, then. Let's say it was a real love match that has finally run its course.
