Oh no! I just said aloud. He seemed to be a likable, smart guy! RIP Grant!

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

That is a drag! I also agree with Sarcany...Kary had better stay healthy.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I can count on one hand the number of notable Asian personalities on American TV. The passing of Imahara is a huge loss.

Refreshingly, he is being spoken of only in glowing terms regarding his warmth and kindness as well as innumerable people attesting to his encouraging influence on their interest in science and just being flat out curious in all the best ways.

RIP.

You must have missed the memo about Kelly Preston.



It is what it is.

No it doesn't.

Apparently so.


This is really sad news.

I've seen him on TV in different venues many times and always seemed like a very personable guy.

Of all the things he did for Mythbusters, my favorite creation of his is



As I recall, Ferguson said to Grant 'Make a robot', and he did.


RIP. Grant.

Oh man, this is surprising to me, sad news. Enjoyed him on MythBusters, and seem to recall there was a more recent show with him but I never got to watching it. sad smiley

Very sad, can't remember him being on the screen and _not_ loving every minute of it.

He was great. Very sad to lose a great TV personality.

I hope he didn't go to an ER 2 weeks earlier complaining of headache...



All I ever really needed to know, I learned from watching Star Trek.

I didn't know who he was, but that is very sad. I'm impressed with the story about the robot on Ferguson.

I wasn't as familiar with his work on Mythbusters, but he was great as Sulu in the Star Trek Continues productions.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

Kari apparently had a messy separation from her husband. She posted some suicidal stuff on Twitter in a drunken Twitrage at one point, then deleted it later and apologized.
