“Don’t try what you’re about to see us do at home.”
“We’re what you call ‘idiots’.”
If you want to know a bit more about Mumbles, check out the post on her blog where she talks about joining the cast of Spoiler Warning and gives a bit of her gaming background.
I tease the other cast members about how they make me feel old. When you can’t see someone, you’re not constantly thinking about their age and background. I’ve never met any of them in person, and they’re all fairly mature. So I forget how old they are and treat them like same-age peers most of the time. But then suddenly one of them will mention something crazy, like how they were a kid when the Nintendo 64 came out, and I’ll suddenly be reminded of our huge age differential. (Not as huge as some, but still.) So I keep saying annoying old-man things to them.
“Hey, I met my wife the year you were born.”
“So wait, you’re YOUNGER than Tetris?!?”
“Please tell my you’re joking about not seeing Back to the Future.”
“My oldest daughter turns 13 in about a week. You’re closer to her age than to mine.”
They’re all good sports about my sudden revelations regarding my own mortality. And I had a point to all of this but I’ve forgotten it now.
Oh, right. Mythbusters is awesome.
