Well, to be fair, for me "Mythbusters" died in 2014. When the Tory, Kari and Grant were fired. And in 2016 the tried to start "White Rabbit"

This one sucks hard as he was a friend.

For most of the day as news of his death passed through those who knew him the one word that has come up volumes over anything else is "kind." The Grant you saw, from Junkyard Wars, Battlebots, Mythbusters, White Rabbit, his guest appearances and fan builds; the curious Grant, the playful Grant, the problem solving Grant, those were all real. But the could know him and never know how deep that kindness went. He was kind when he didn't have to be, he was kind in ways no one would ever see.

I didn't know him as well as others, but we all knew his kindness. He was a beautiful person and the world is better through his example.

Mythbusters is partially what got me interested in engineering and the scientific method, so this is really sad. I feel like it's really rare to have such genuinely curious and innovative television personalities these days, and Grant was definitely one of those.

Mythbusters was one of my favorite shows growing up, and I liked White Rabbit Project as well. I don't know what to say other than RIP.

Then again, today's been dealing us a multi-blow of fuck.
