Sad news *PING*
Sorry to hear that. He was great on that show.
Was he the guy who tried to recreate the Star Trek TOS gunpowder cannon ?
I think so.
I really liked him. How sad. Praying for his family.
My daughter told my wife to let me know a while ago. My wife survived an aneurysm years ago and a few years later her sister died of an aneurysm. My wife recovered completely and doesn't often even think about it.
Well, that sucks.
Yep. Every myth that needed remote electronic control system, he found a way. Also, he had a brilliant midnd for finding solutions to problems they ran into as well.
Poor guy. My grandfather died of an aneurysm; cardiac. It was sudden.
That’s so sad. I spent middle school and high school watching them, and they got me interested in electronics and mechanical tinkering. Grant was also one of the original Battle Bots champions, which I also remember.
That’s so very sad. RIP, Mythbuster.
Now I'm thinking of the redhead: the ultimate nerdette. I hope everyone else associated with the show is doing well.
RIP. Loved Mythbusters.
Way too young.
I gave up on the show when the ‘kids’ were let go. The show by then had gotten pretty stale anyway and that didn’t help at all. You could really start to tell that Jamie and Adam hated each other.
Played Sulu on the, IMHO, best of the fanfic ST sequels, Star Trek Continues. And was great on Mythbusters.
If my memory serves me, I believe he created Geoff the Robot on the Craig Ferguson Show.
My sister had an anyeurism 15 years ago. It damaged her vision. Her left eye can only see high to the right.
To clarify, it is a burst aneurism is deadly.
Those eyes. A man could drown in them!
