In today's One Day Build on @testedcom , the plan to upgrade my drill press turns into a disassembly and repair mission. Watch:

And now, the conclusion of our @calacademy  building-an-octopus-puzzle series! Watch:

Today's show and tell features four beautiful sculptural masks made by a fan. They're incredible.

Another absolutely wonderful short shelter-in-place film from @testedcom 's @joeyfameli . SO good.

In today's favorite tools video on @testedcom , BEST GLUE GUN!

My friend and colleague Grant Imahara embodied the qualities of kindness, generosity, humor, and camaraderie. I'm so grateful that there’s now a foundation named in his honor that will carry those qualities forward. Watch their memorial video here:

I’m at a loss. No words. I’ve been part of two big families with Grant Imahara over the last 22 years. Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing, and gentle PERSON. Working with Grant was so much fun. I’ll miss my friend.

Just a reminder from this friendly neighborhood science communicator that wearing masks is how we protect each other and prevent further death from COVID-19. They’re uncomfortable, that’s true. Then again so is dying. It’s literally the LEAST you can do. So do it!

“GOP” members of the Senate, you unconscionable, pathetic, spineless, hypocritical, lickspittle, death rattle of a racist patriarchal Calvinist shitbags. May all your teeth fall out but one. And in that one may you have a toothache. Enjoy how history looks at you. It’s not pretty

Just piping in here to let you know that if you think that wearing a ppe mask=weakness, i have some colorful things to say about your intelligence. I’m astounded that wearing a mask is AT ALL CONTROVERSIAL, and yet here we are. WEAR A MASK!!

Grant and I bonded early at ILM and called each other “Doctor” the entire 22 years we knew each other. This photo is from the last job I did at ILM, Terminator 3. A month after it was taken, I started filming MythBusters. Grant would join us two years later.

And why the hell are black men being found hanging from fucking trees? Seriously what the hell.

I want to change the direction i see this country moving towards: one set of rules for rich white ppl and another for everyone else. I’ve considered the candidates. I’ve researched them, & tomorrow I’m voting for @elizabethforma . I like most of the rest of the field just fine.

I went to the march today in the mission and it was so moving and awesome. Crowded but EVERYONE was wearing a mask, plenty of real distancing despite the crowd. I brushed against three people total in the 90 min i was there in the middle of the throng. It was a beautiful sight.
