Adam thank you for taking the time out of your day to make these segments. as a now semi-experienced maker, I discovered my passion as a child watching Mythbusters and you as an idol. But now as an adult, I see you like a father figure that I can come learn and listen to anytime I need. Every video makes me smile and every segment teaches me something new. Thank you Adam for all you have added to this world and to my life personally.

Working with your kids on something you enjoy must be just as much fun as it is for the kids. When I was in my mid twenties I got to work with my Dad on a couple of jobs (we were both prototype wirers). Communication was simple because we inherently understood each other, and we had a real blast. He's gone now, but I will always treasure the months we worked together.

As a father of two young ones (4 & 6) i love hearing Adam talk about his experiences as a father. The little things he mentions like them holding your index finger when out in the world, i totally get. so when he talks about them as adults, it makes me excited for the future to see my own sons grow into independent adults. I'm a few years off, so I'll cherish my time with them now.

I’m a dad of a great son. That said I never once wondered about what kind of dad I’d be if I had a kid. As for what kind of dad I am well I’m the kind of dad my dad is.

I know what you meant. Good clean fun. One of my greatest feelings was being able to treat my whole family to dinner. Paying back all the prior moments of being the one who needed dinner bought for them.

Many years ago, I read David Gerrold's book The Trouble with Tribbles. This is his account of the creation of the titular episode of ST:TOS. He wrote about the level of rewriting (as he was the scriptwriter for the episode), which was extremely high, but worked for a comedic episode. On that show, each alteration to the original shooting script was done on a different color paper, in an established order. Normally, they'd have maybe 5 layers of rewrites to the shooting script. There was something like 20 on that episode, and had colors never otherwise seen in a script.

Sounds like folk racing in Finland, they keep the price low and if you win another person can ask to trade vehicles with you to keep it fair.

I'm quite impressed how Adam has managed to shield his kids from public visibility, even though I'm sure they are as active on social media as anyone of their generation. I assume, now they're fully mature adults, they'll reveal themselves somewhere in due course.

Im the same age as Adam , my sister also gained extreem ideas, I think the trigger was a minor car crash , accelerating her blood pressure and causing a minute brain pop. causing initially time not working where time was given to chasing the rabbit hole whatever that may be, a sense of impending doom she had. unexplainable. Are your kids really called Thing 1 and Thing2, that would be great, ive 4. bgbg, love your work. Almost finished the Multico M1 morticer restoration.

Thank you again Adam, I appreciate your time as always. I loved that episode, one of my favorites from that show. Recent videos of yours have inspired me to rebuild my lab once again, continual improvement method, to try to get closer to your first order of retrieval goal. As always, stay safe, and thank you for the inspiration

I would place money on the LAX Jetman being a drone, there are several videos on YouTube of R/C 1:1 scale flying man models that look very convincing.

The most memorable event of my parenting experience was the first time my son exceeded my ability at a particular task. I taught him to juggle 3 balls one weekend. Within a month he was juggling 4 balls and doing tricks way beyond my capacity. #proudfather

Yeah, he probably doesn't have the money these days. While the base vehicle is not overly expensive, that's not the sort of thing that doesn't spiral to crazy costs very fast.

my parenting thing was wanting to do science projects with my child/children and i got to do that thanks to mythbusters. the mentos and diet cola episode my boy was 5 at the time he saw that and just lit up watching you guys do that stuff so we got permission from mom to do it out side and then went and got cola and mentos and we spent a good 2 hours doing rocket experiments and trying to make the cola clear the house. i cant wait to see what i get to do in a few years when hes older and working as a geologist which is his dream now. love of science all from two guys playing with cola.
