  1. hmmmm….. unlike the other features on Tested, the video is missing here. In its place is,

    Perhaps you need to start over again :-).

  2. Hi Adam, I have a follow up to this. When a project gets “shelved” because you have run out of energy on it, do you have a system for “saving” your progress so that you can hit the ground running when you pick it back up again in the future?

    Thanks,

    Richard

  3. Hi Adam! I have been following your journey since the beginning of Mythbusters. You seem to have worked with every kind of maker there is- vast ranges of age, experience, skill sets and interests. But you seem to have had a special experience when you worked with the incredible kids on Mythbusters Jr. They seemed to spark your enthusiasm in a whole new way. That’s my long way of asking: which do you prefer and why? Working with adults or kids? I am sure there are advantages and disadvantages aplenty for both situations. #AskAdamSavage
