Mythbusters Experiment Gone Horribly Awry

Apparently a cannonball, uh, stunt for the Television show Mythbusters went wrong. Really wrong. Like, firing-a-cannonball-700-yards-out-of-test-range-through-a-front-door-up-some-stairs-through-a-wall-and-across-four-lanes-of-traffic-and-off-the-roof-of-another-house wrong.

I'm no physicist, but what happened here? Someone forget a decimal? Presumably these scientists -- and I use that term lightly --  do multiple calculations and possibly simulations before running these stunts, right? I think this could have some pretty big implications for the show's future. Imagine if that thing picked someone off.
