I Have A Twin Brother!

January 30th, 2007 by Kevin

As part of a congrats for my fifth Blogiversary, Nightwriter noticed an uncanny resemblance between myself and Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame (one of my favorite shows).  

I have to admit, he makes quite the case, complete with photographic evidence.  For example…

  • Both use the motto, "I reject your reality and substitute my own!"
  • Both get paid to figure out how to blow things up. The difference is Adam Savage shows you how to do it on TV; if Kevin showed you how it's done he'd have to kill you. (Go here for links to Mythbusters' greatest explosions.)
  • Adam busts urban legends that "everyone knows are true" using physics, curiosity and some cool gear; Kevin blows holes in generally accepted liberal "facts" and thinking using reason, research and a lot of attitude.
  • Adam once tested the effects of a mannequin urinating on an electrified rail; that's how Kevin wakes himself up in the morning.
  • Adam goes to great lengths to test the limits of science and knowledge; Kevin goes to great lengths to try to buy my daughter beer and test the limits of my patience.

That combined with the other evidence presented….well, I admit, I'm even convinced.  I have a twin brother.  And he has access to some really really cool stuff.  Since he lives and works in the People's Republic of Kalifornia (ROK), perhaps he can hire me on as the firearm specialist.  Or maybe he can help me build a device that will allow me to sneak a beer to Mall Diva without Nightwriter finding out.  Or maybe we can combine the two?!?  Uh….maybe not.
