  1. Makes me want to build something.

    Makes me want to have a kid to teach to build something.

    Makes me want to be a grandfather so I don’t have to work and so I can have a grandchild to teach to build something.

  2. love how all the kids are on their phones in school…..this is why our education system sucks and less and less graduate :/ when I was in school me and about 5 other kids had phones in the whole school and kids were graduating. sad times we live in that this is actually happening.

  3. He makes very good points for schools and governments to stop cutting art and shop classes to save money.

  4. WOO! Whole heartedly agree on his allergy story. Kids need to learn to feel what it’s like to fail so when they succeed it means something. I’ve already done that with my 3 year old daughter and I’ll continue with my next child (which is due in December! :))

  5. This makes me want to build that dinner table I can’t find anywhere… can barely hold a hammer.

    Interesting video, Adam.
