  1. The link to “An Announcement Regarding Tested Premium Membership!” is 404! I suppose that’s an announcement, but probably not the one you intended to make.

  2. Guys, now that you are finally posting new content, after months, my subscription ended and I cannot find a way to renew it. What’s going on?

  3. I too have wanted a US/metric ruler tattoo too. The thing is I feel funny doing it now as it feels like I am just copying Adam and for some reason that makes me less than comfortable.

    Silly?

  4. I have a ASK ADAM question.

    I have noticed in all your videos that there seems to be an ever-present bandage and/or bruise on one of your fingers. So my question is a series of yes/no true false.

    – Have you EVER gone a full week in your life WITHOUT wounding on one of your fingers? Yes/No.

    – Have you ever gone a DAY in your workshop with out a bandage or bruise on your hand? Yes/No

    – I BET you have never survived a FULL MONTH without a finger injury. True/False.

    BTW this is not a criticism, If I were to tell the stories of all the scars on my own hands, it would be a 10-hour session.

  5. Hey Adam! Just watched your Captain America Cosplay Case video, and I have a question.

    I’ve been thinking about doing up my luggage with some retro-style travel stickers. Where do you get your inspiration for the stickers you put on the cases & boxes you make for your stuff?

  6. My question would be: Considering the amount of spraying and sawing and filing that is done in the cave – AND the amount of stuff that are every where…how the heck do you keep the place ( and all the dolls and props and what not) clean?!?

  7. Genius! This inspired me to tattoo the Orton Pyrometric Cone temp conversion chart that I’ve carried in my wallet for 13 plus years on my left forearm. (Once we can get tattoos again.)

  8. I noticed in one of your recent videos, that the floor of your cave is plywood. I would have expected it to be concrete. Why is it plywood?

  9. Hi Adam and All. I have purchased the Ruler from your store. I will be having it Tattooed on my left forearm, as I am ambidextrous, lucky me As an X Paramedic working in London England, Cup of Tea Please, I never had the time to sit and enjoy the content, and watch with amazement how you and All are able to problem solve and innovate a problem. This mirrors my 17 year job as a Medic, diagnosing and treating a patient. On my days off I worked on film and television around England. Mainly Pinewood Studios and Leavesden while working on Harry Potter respectively. I have fond memories of doing a night shift having my evening meal that my then Wife Sarah ( We are still best friends ), sitting on the set of Diagon Aley at 3 in the morning, just wandering around the many sets and waiting for the Special Effects crew to leave so I could go home. I m at 55 and now retired due to illness and injury. But treasure every moment from both my real job. Loved helping the Old People, and then the movie stuff. Thank you and all for a brilliant show, and I am glad to be a patron. Thanks Geff Hedges.

  10. My question is about the ever changing nature of technology and how it would impact mythbusters today. While (re)watching the show I wondered what it would be like if you had access to things like ultra high speed cameras, or self driving cars (as opposed to remote controlled rigs from the past) do you ever wish you could revisit a myth just because the new technology would make it easier/more precise/more entertaining?

  11. Hi adam! I just recently made a friend with someone from alameda, and she shared with me that you (and the mythbusters crew) used to volunteer at her school growing up, and she had great memories of meeting you!

    I thought that was super awesome, and was wondering what your favorite memory of alameda was, outside of shooting the the show/work. Thanks!
