  1. Adam, have you ever given up on a project that you’ve been working on for a long time because you got too frustrated with it / couldn’t make it work to the point where you can’t even look or think about it anymore without getting mad?

  2. #AskAdamSavage – can you talk trash?? In your shop, what are some of the best ways to keep your shop clean? Is there a special tool or set of tools you use to ensure your shop stays clean?

  3. Adam, I hope this is something you ruff on in a future public talk, I think there are some interesting insights here on the difference between collecting/owning/hoarding stuff and being a steward of something you are passionate about.

  4. “If your shop caught fire and you could run in for one thing, what would it be?”

    There can be only one answer: the fire.

  5. #AskAdamSavage Hey Adam. Apart from the Mythbusters eyebrow incident, what is the stupidest way you have been injured whilst completing a task?

  6. Those of us who live in potential disaster zones sometimes create a “horcrux box” of a few items that sample the important moments on our lives from which we derive great meaning. Not so many that we miss them on a daily basis, but if we lose everything else we still have those few objects to ground us materially to our past lives. In my family we stash these safely with siblings in other parts of the country.

    I want to hear an answer to this question! Where does all that sawdust go?
