  1. wil should go to rhinebech new york they have an areodrome with WWI planes you can’t ride in them but on weekends they have a mock battle. google old rhinebeck areodrome for info.

  2. It was a pleasure to meet you at the Perth show Adam, l got the nervous fan mumbles which was a shame but great to meet you nonetheless.

  3. Regarding the “all five cities” joke, I can see why it might get varying reactions.

    To Australians who are aware of the Aussie connection to Mythbusters, that joke looks very different to people who don’t know much about Adam. To the former, it’s obvious that he is taking the piss.The latter plays directly into the unfortunate stereotype of the “ignorant American”, being slightly compounded by the grain of truth that after the five state capitol cities, it’s only really Canberra and Newcastle that have more than a few hundred thousand residents. They’re more like big country towns than true cities.

  4. mortalwombat: (sorry, the comment system doesnt like me replying to you directly)

    it seems adam likes to flirt with the ignorant american stereotype in his wit from time to time. nothing objectionable about it of course, but its a sensitive thing to get to land just right. doubly so when not in a person-to-person interaction but speaking to an audience or via video.

    i know i had to take a little time to decipher when german came up in his joking. on one hand, its easy to rationally understand adam cant possibly not know german (spiced with misremembered linguistic stereotypes, no less) pronounced like english is wrong, and playing its weird sound for laughs makes you look kinda dumb. but dammit if his delivery wasnt so on point that it took effort to not misread him as an actual stereotype ignorant american.

  5. Oh my god! I realized just now that I turned down a compositing supervisor job on that WW1 doc that Peter Jackson is making.

    I guess I’m going to have a “I feel stupid” day today.

  6. G’day Adam and team,

    I have footage and photos of your puppeteering of our Allosaurus at Creature Technology while you were here in Melbourne. How can I get it to you? Thanks so much for coming in for a visit.
