I had adenocarcinoma in my lacrimal gland and I chose the best option for seeing my young children grow up. I have adapted well and I am using this rubbish year to start an eyepatch business to help others feel confident after surgery or injury.
[Edit] Thank you to everyone for the wonderful comments, hilarious jokes and brilliant ideas. I can't believe how much interest this received and thank you for the gold kind stranger. I've added the example prosthetic I was shown, mine will look younger and be matched to my skin tones, eye colour etc.
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
does the socket packet pocket have an error to report?
Which one of your characters do you think you are actually the most like in real life?
Welcome to reddit! If you could tell one thing to every person in the world, what would it be?
What is the best advice you've been given?
What do you think about fan-interactions that spontaneously happen when you're just doing your day to day errands?
(asking because I passed by you years ago and was too shy to say hello)
What was the give away that something was wrong with your eye? Let's trigger the hypochondria in all of us!
But on a serious note, hope you recover quick. And when you get your prosthesis you should get one freaky looking eye too! For special occasions!
If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!
...but if you want the actual answer: it is "no" as it is a system write vs a network error, neither TCP nor UDP would report anything back
That would be a good question for my wife. I don’t know. I don’t think any of them, not completely. There’s a piece of me in all of them and all of them in me, but I can’t say this one is really like me. Training Day was close. No, that’s the old me. The younger me.
I would like to spread awareness about brain tumors. Support the fight against childhood cancer. May is brain tumor awareness month. I'd like for people to support it more especially during that month
Well...Bryan has a new book out, full of great advice. -jf
I had been getting headaches for a while, my eye started to swell up and I had double and blurred vision. I said at the time it felt like my eye was pushed forwards and it turned out it was. I have put a few pictures on my Facebook to raise awareness.
I'm hoping I can have some coloured eyes made up, match my eye to my outfit!
Hey Gray, what would you say is the thing that keeps you so positive in the face of having dealt with this for ten years?
What were both of your "Hey, I finally made it in Hollywood" moments?
What, in your opinion, was probably the stupidest myth you ever tested on the show? What about your favorite?
How easy is to change eyes?
Gray said he wants to video his first response. We are uploading it and will edit this link shortly!
When we did Freaks and Geeks I remember sitting around Seth Rogen and Jason Segel, the four of us was just like, THIS IS IT! WE MADE IT! HOLLYWOOD HERER WE COME! Even though that show was so good, when it first came out a not a lot of people watched it, so we kind of had that moment and it kind of was taken away, and then it was given back to us when it played reruns. - jf
Pyramid power was the lamest myth. I have so many favorites that it's hard to pick one. What's your favorite myth?
They pop in and out of the silicone that will make up my eyelids, so very easy I imagine
Hardly anyone who has done a security related AMA has mentioned Flash. As someone who got rid of Flash probably about 4 years ago this seems odd. Is there a reason why it's often forgotten, or am I thinking it's a bigger issue than it really is? (Either way, Flash is gone for good on my systems - nope, don't use Chrome so it's not there and just disabled either)
If you didn't have a career in acting what do you think you'd be doing for a living?
Hey Gray, I'm a 17 year old battling brain cancer now. Do you have a favorite doctor/nurse that you love talking to? And what advice would you give to me or others who are battling childhood cancer?
When will you guys be doing a Malcolm in the Middle movie?
How much creative control does Netflix give you guys with White Rabbit Project?
Wait you lost your eyelids too?
Probably working with children. That’s all I did before, I was a counselor for the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA. So that was most of the kind of work I was doing from age 13 up until I became an actor.
Just try not to think about what you have. Let your family or whoever take care of that. Just focus on being a kid. You know who I got that from? M. O. M.
There has been some conversation about that. I dont know if or when that could happen, I guess we have to gauge the temperament of the fans to see if its something they want. But maybe. It would be fun to play with all those people again. It would be like if you (JF) did a Freaks and Geeks movie -bc
Netflix has been amazing. They pretty much just let us make the show. So different from cable.
I had an orbital exenteration, it's the whole contents of the socket removed and the eyelid, due to the position of the tumours
Bryan, has anybody ever told you that your voice is like smooth butter dripped over some like mashed potatoes? I fucking love mashed potatoes.
How did your conversation with Kari go after she electroshocked you over dinner?
I was coincidentally just wondering about this on my lunch break, dunno if you're still answering but if you're not maybe someone else can answer even...
Does the vision from that eye go black (or whatever colour it might be) or does it just..... disappear? I don't know how to describe what I mean really.
We were laughing so hard. It turned out to be a very fun scene.
I love this question, I wondered the same before my op. It was strange, to begin with it was almost white, then static now black. But it's not the same as having both closed when I wink if that makes sense.
Do either of you find it harder or easier to do comedies as compared to dramas?
Well thanks for that question, Sayshoe. Comedy can be tougher because its more fragile. You can ruin a comedy easier than you can ruin a drama. And thats why I say that. A drama is usually very well scripted. A comedy is not fully baked. You are infusing, on a daily basis, opening them up and trying different things. And because of that a comedy is much harder than a drama -bc
If one wanted to, oh, I don't know, maybe get a friend elected in politics, how difficult would it be to pull it off without actually getting caught? Asking for my comrade, er, friend.
Hi, just wanted to say you are one of my all time favourite actors. A living legend.
My question for you is: What role if any did you have a hard time shaking off once the movie was wrapped up?
Good morning Gray. I've been helping my Wife through a similar situation for a bit over 5 years now. Four bouts of various types of cancer (gastrointestinal [neuroendocrine carcinoma], cervical, ovarian and now, just last month, stage 3 melanoma) How have you dealt with the depression and/or isolation that typically comes with this ordeal?
Michelle, as a caregiver, same question.
Would you be interested in me writing an erotic fan fiction about your movie?
Hi Tory, thanks for doing the AMA! You should do this more often!
Do you still maintaining contact with Jamie and Adam? I know that you appeared in one of Tested podcast but do you still come by M5 from time to time to check up on Jamie? That guy just vanish into the deep water like a wal.... (i better not say it)
Was everything, even the prosthesis, covered under insurance for you?
Apparently all you have to is send out a phishing email and you will catch the competition in your net
Malcolm X. My wife would be like “Is Malcolm coming home tonight?”
I feel like I get depressed and alone but I always remember that I have people to help me through those moments. And when I remember that, it makes me feel peppy again. That there are people out there that are cheering for me and it helps me not feel alone and conquer what I'm going through. From Michelle, keeping him involved with people with similar conditions. Like CoachArt. When you do things with CoachArt, there are families and kids with similar situations and we get to be together as a group. Creating opportunities to share within the foundations we are involved with is an outlet for him to share. It creates a support network Gray says I like CoachArt because it helps me meet people who know how I feel and it makes me feel better because other people really don't know how I feel
I find it very flattering when one piece of creative evokes erotic fan fiction, or another piece of creative. So why not go for it -bc
Thanks! I just had lunch with Jamie a week ago. He's still building crazy machines in his shop, but I get the feeling he's done with TV.
I'm in the UK. Big up the NHS. I'd never have been able to afford any of this without them.
Do either of you have a favorite gas station snack? If so, what is it?
Are you half italian? Your surname sounds like that. Big fan from italy ciao!
My wife was diagnosed and treated for the same condition in 2010. It was quite and ordeal but her recovery is complete. Now living a normal life minus a bit of peripheral vision. Depth perception at short distances was tough at first but you adapt.
Where did you receive your treatment? We are from Canada but travelled to Miami to the Bascom Palmer for specialized treatment.
Good luck with your continued recovery. If you ever want to chat with a fellow survivor PM me and I will pass it along to her.
To find a cure to brain tumors. I have lots of dreams but that's my biggest dream. I think 7 kids die from a brain tumor each day. I could be wrong about how many but that's scary to me
A slim jim. Its like an old piece of sausage and you chew on it and you're like, oh wow there's a lot of grease in there. And then you realize you just ate a pig snout. Why dont they just come out with pig snout?? -bc
I am from the UK so most of my treatment was London or my local hospitals. Thank you for your kind words and I wish you both the best for the future. It good to hear she has recovered well.
This is probably going to get buried, but I wanted to let you know that when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 24, I became really jaded and relied on gallows’ humor to cope. I am 27 now and can be rather bitter over how much I have lost (peripheral vision, being able to drive at night, decent looking hair/skin, and a modest credit score) over my diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Reading your AMA has blown me away with how positive and insightful you are at 16. You have a lot to be proud of and I hope your co-captain knows that she raised a wonderful young man.
Per this subreddit’s rules, I have to ask a question : when you went through chemo, did you have Temodar (the oral chemo?) Have you found it to be more mild than intravenous chemotherapy?
Why this movie?
What is your "White Whale" of testing? The one thing you could never get just right, but knew the solution was out there?
I worked with a guy at Kings and St Thomas hospital on a project about restoring peripheral vision in people who had lost an eye - he was one of the maxillofacial surgeons there. If you are interested, drop me a pm and I'll see if he's still working on it.
I'd like to say thank you and I'm sorry to hear about what you lost. But just remember, there's always a silver lining at the end of the rainbow!
I love the director John Hamburg. He does most of those Focker movies, I Love You Man, just great guy. He was acutally my professor at NYU so I knew him a bit. WhenI heard that Bryan was interested, it just seemed like a great opportunity to it. I've been doing comedy with Seth Rogen for a long time, and I've been a fan of Bryan for a long time -- so here was a chance to do comedy with a new crew. - jf
Driving an F1 race car upside down. It's supposed to have so much down force that it would overcome gravity. No one ever wanted to let us use their F1. Go figure.
That's amazing thank you.
Good morning Gray! Hopefully you're having a good day. What do you feel most proud of?
Who is the better kisser between you two?
The see-through screens you guys use on WRP to video chat are awesome...are they real or CGI?
So all of us one eyed Redditors are planning an uprising, you down?
But seriously, from a fellow eye patch enthusiast, way to channel something terrible into something awesome.
Hi! Just the fact that I'm still here and still going. Any time that I'm feeling down and having a bad day, I remember that I'm a brain tumor survivor and that's not by luck. It's a little luck but we've fought hard
James kissed my nose once while filming. I didnt think it was appropriate for you to use tongue in my nose though, James. His tongue darted out and went up my nostril. I didn't say I didn't like it, it was just unusual. -bc
They're so cool right?! Available this Christmas? I'll keep that a mystery.
Thank you fellow cyclops
When I get verification, I always get it as a phone call instead of SMS. Is this more secure?
Denzel, I am a big fan of yours. My question is how did you psych yourself up for the "King Kong ain't got shit on me" scene in Training Day, and how much of it was ad lib?
Thank you sir!!
Tory - I used to binge watch myth busters in my friend's basement. Should I prepare to do the same? I need to know how many days of food to prepare
I'm sorry to hear about your rare cancer! Losing an eye is something I can't relate to, but I'm glad you're able to keep your life and family and press forward to a better, healthier future!
You're very brave to not only endure all of the procedures and share it with Reddit, but can you see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
Not really, if you can intercept SMS you could also forward the phone call somewhere else. There is no way they could authenticate the voice as you unless they personally know you.
That was an ad lib line, and I was developing and ad-libbing the scene as we went along, so we actually shot everybody else as I was working it out, and his whole thing was his ego, and I was getting real stuff from the real gangsters like shoe program and what that meant and all that stuff from the bloods, and from one take I just went off, and Antoine is like, “man, you know what you just said,” I said, “yeah”, and he said he wanted me to do it again. But purely it was his ego, Alonzo’s ego. If you look at the end of the movie again he’s getting out of the car and pointing with his key cause he’s trying to get out of the trunk where his guns are cause he’s still until the end not giving up, what did he say? I’m gonna win anyway.
HAHA! White Rabbit Project is 10 eps each around 60mins. If you're gonna binge and you're serious, you could probably get it done in a day. 1 day supply.
Aye, I can half see ...
You managed to write 4 sentences and still not actually answer the question. You should rethink the whole cyber security and become a politician !
What is something someone in your life has said, that you've kept with you- and has made a positive impact on your life?
Hi Gray, thank you for sharing your experiences with us!
What has been the hardest part of dealing with your medical issues? Would be interested to hear from your mother about this as well.
Mr. Cranston, do you ever see yourself directing a film in the future?
Hi Tory! What was the scariest thing that has ever happened to you while filming?
Have you ever used the "I have my eye on you" joke as of yet?
"We want to fight a single defined target" meant we'll take the big duck!
My mother said, "Keep it simple." It took me a long time, wading through a lot of stuff, to realize how much of it you don't need. I don't even mean material, professionally, I've said this before, Sidney Poitier told me, "if they see you for free all week, they won't pay to see you on the weekend." So don't be everywhere for everybody. This is an age when we think the more you're seen, the better. In the movie business, that's not the case. Prime example, when is the last time you've seen Daniel Day Lewis? Right? Lincoln. Last movie did 3-400 million. That's the movie game. You want people to say, "where is he?" Like you just said, "When's Equalizer?" Those are two good things. Keep it simple.
Just going through treatments one after another after another after. Every time I have an MRI or surgery, I'm wondering "am I gonna make it or am I gonna die? Sometimes I wonder if this is the last one." Mom said hardest for Gray has been the anxiety and anticipation of going through treatments. That's ALWAYS been the hardest.
Yes, I do have a script that I wrote that is getting some traction and could possible go next year or the year after that. I'm really excited about it. I directed an episode of a tv series I created call SneakyPete on Amazon -bc
It's a toss up between getting in the ring with a bull and jumping into shark infested water.
I have so many eye - deas. I can't wait until it's fully healed the pranks will be immense
Hi Tory! watching White Rabbit and loving it. Is Jesse the chemist (from ep 3 I think?) the same Jesse who was in the Breaking Bad ep of Mythbusters?
Real sorry about loosing your eye. I would like to know how long did it take to get you diagnosed from the time you had eye pain and headaches and seen a doctor. What kind of test did the doctors order?
I went to see an optician within about 3 weeks of it being noticeable, I had to chase a bit for the MRI as my referral was lost the first time luckily I had a fantastic g.p. who listened to me and sent me urgently for a scan. The results took 2 weeks and then from there it was so quick. I had a call to say I had to visit a local hospital that day as my scan results were in, they then referred me to a specialist eye hospital that had me in for a needle biopsy, blood tests, chest x ray, CT scan and a debulking operation. Once it came back as cancer I was referred to an oncologist for a full body scan, which took a further two weeks to be confirmed clear, and a MRI of my eyes again. This then showed I still had tumour left behind and due to the very aggressive type the full orbital exenteration was recommended by all my doctors as the best choice.
First off, just want to say that you're an amazingly strong young man for enduring what you have. I just lost my mom (4 months ago) to cancer after a 4+ year battle. She's the strongest person I've ever known, and I can only imagine what it was like for her, but I'm so happy that you've fought just as hard as she did, and you're still at it! People like you two inspire me and millions of others to never give up in life.
Also, what are your top three favorite games?
Best moment on a film set?
That touched my heart, thank you. Skip Bo, Monopoly Deal, and Uno Attack. This is from Joe, I can tell you first hand Gray is savage in Skip Bo
I think it was our fight. I really enjoyed it. Its complicated, its like a dance. You have to choreograph it. There's something that happens during the fight that wasn't planned. Once James and I were in a certain position... its like 'well, look here'. I bit down on James Franco's crotch. I got a mouth full of Franco. That was the best and worst moment on set -bc
What are some unexpected side effects of large breaches like this?
Having done Fences on stage as a play and now as a film what do you think is the most difficult part to transition and is there anything you feel was lost/gained because of the change from stage to screen?
Do you think you guys will, if White Rabbit Project gets renewed which I see easily happening, look at suggestions fans might have about the show and see if it's something you can improve on?
You mentioned earlier you are also missing the eyelid. Do you have a "phantom eyelid"? Does it feel normal? Or do you feel like you can't blink that side?
Biggest consequence is that 70% of people use the same password on multiple sites. So there are coordinated networks to try these credentials on many sites like Amazon PayPal etc.
You should also consider using different emails for different sign ups
One of the challenges were the transitions. In a play it's lights out, the curtain comes. You can't do that but it opened up other opportunities to stay with the character that were left on stage in the play. It was a process. It was a slow process. Was anything lost or gained? Yea, probably! That's just the nature of it. You might lose a little, it’s a motion picture now. Some of the story is just told in what you see. You won't have to say it all.
Totally. We've always been very responsive to you guys so if we do get a S2 we're listening. So far a lot of people are happy with the show, but want more builds. I agree.
I do, it's twitched a few times in the past, drives me crazy.
How would Heisenberg deal with James Franco's character in Why Him?
Got any pirate themed eyepatches? Or are all eyepatches pirate themed by default?
Speaking of barrels, he would've rolled out a barrel with some sort of chemical in it. And I would say to him “are you going to be good to her? Are you gonna be a gentlemen? Cause if not I will come after you, and no one will ever find you. -bc
I worked with J & A for years before MB in special fx for movies. When they got picked for MB they called me to audition as a builder and the rest is history.
Most other patches I could find were pirate themed which is why I started making a wider variety. I have made an anchor patch for a pirate pantomime though so anything is possible. I make them to order so I can customise them to suit the customer.
Good morning, Gray! Thanks for doing this. I think you're awesome and inspiring. Is there a way I can keep following you to hear/read about what you're up to and be able to say hi? PS: Joe is way more popular since he started hanging out with you. Good job teaching him how to be more fun.
Bryan & James, What is your typical morning routine?
Fellow one eye person here. Honestly, if I could have got a cool eye patch at the age of 12 when I lost my eye, it may have made middle school a little little less hellish for those few months. So best of luck to you and what you're doing!
That is funny about Joe. I have a Facebook site that I can receive messages: https://www.facebook.com/Amazing-Gray-117720188251784/?fref=ts
I usually get up pretty early. There's just so much to do. Although I go to bed pretty late. I've been trying to get more sleep, but it's so hard! Bryan left the party early last night! - jf
HAHA! And someone from the highway called 911 because they thought someone was driving it. Good times indeed.
This is the reason I am doing this, thank you for your well wishes.
Hey guys, did you happen to pull any pranks on each other while filming? I feel like you're both the type of dudes to have a little fun on set.
Do you still keep in touch with Joel Zimmerman aka deadmau5?
sorry to hear about your eye firstly. How has this affected your daily life?
Making moments out of everything. If you're saying something can't be done, someone else is doing it
yes. so James was also teaching every weekend that we were shooting this. We worked 14 hours a day on our show. So during the week often, where there was a couch or something, James would take a nap on the couch (in the middle of everybody working), we'd go over and take cast pictures with James while he was sleeping. He can fall asleep anywhere. And he reads more than anybody I know - bc
Yeah I talk to Joel all the time. We were just hanging out in Hawaii about a month ago, trying to crash golf carts at his show.
For the first few weeks it was very painful and I was very self conscious but now I have lost some peripheral on my right side but it doesn't really affect me massively. It's a small price to pay I feel.
What's your favorite pizza topping?
Hi Tory! Thank you for taking the time to be with us today!
What kind of milk do you drink? 2%, 1%, Whole, Chocolate, Milk Alternative?
oh that sucks, i hope everything works out for you!!
Between Grim Rocket and Grim Chaos, Gray said he likes Grim Chaos better. But it's close
Considering that Bryan likes slim jims....he probably puts anything on that pizza. - jf
Thanks for asking me the hard hitting questions. drink 2%
Thank you, it was the right choice to make in my situation so I feel very positive about it.
Hi there! As a current medical student/future physician, do you have any advice for me either about a really positive experience you've had with your doctors or even a particularly negative experience that you'd want to share with me?
Thanks for doing this, hang in there and keep fighting! I'm on your side, fighting against cancer, just from a different angle! You are inspiring with all your positivity!
How's movie shoot catering?
Do you ever get a self satisfying feeling knowing how many people , especially children you've inspired towards science over the past decade or so? Do you feel like you're contributing towards the betterment of man kind by sparking interests in science at such a young age?
Yikes that's rough Sorry to hear it Are you considering getting maybe holiday themed glass eyes? Like ornament eyes? I think that would be pretty shwanky
Yes I do. The patient is always right. The patient AND their parents are always right. Listen to your patient's parents and also listen to their parents. Don't look at them like they're crazy. Just trust them. They know what they're going through more than you would know because that's why they came to you
It was pretty good on this one. Bryan would get everybody pizza, or Mexican, everything. Every Friday. It was great. - jf
I don't think we ever set out to inspire or educate with the show. We were just a curious bunch and wanted to entertain. If we've made a difference for the better then it makes it that much sweeter.
I saw a picture of a rainbow eye and I want one, I wonder if I could get a festive eyeball.
Good Morning Gray, do you believe in an Higher Power? Me being in your situation, id always think "Why Me?"
Hi, Tory! I wanted to quickly say thank you for entertaining me for so many years! You and the rest of the MB cast and crew really made me love science from a young age. I binge watched WRP earlier this week, and I really enjoyed it!
Ever since that moment you wiped out jumping over the wagon, you've kinda become known as the "daredevil"/unwilling guinea pig/guy who accidentally hurts himself on camera a lot. How do you feel about that being a part of your legacy on MB and WRP? I'm also sorry for laughing at a lot of your (hopefully not too bad) pain over the years.
Bonus: What was it like driving that beautiful Lambo for Kari's GPS experiment?
Did you get to keep the eye? I like to think if I had one of my eyes removed I'd have it in a jar on my desk for the rest of my life.
This is the second disclosed breach. In relation to the first one I think the news reports were that they knew about it before the verizon deal was signed during the due diligence process. There is a good argument that this constitutes a "material adverse change" in the business. I am unsure related to the timing of knowledge for the second breach.
Anyways, I think Verizon definitely wants the asset, this could just be a lever to negotiate a better price by threatening to walk away. There is tangible damage here to the brand though, rough to quantify but could be in the Billion+ range.
Hmm. I was just watching something on Istanbul that looked interesting. I’ve been lucky to go so many places, hmmm. I don’t know. Any suggestions?
I used to feel like God chose me to pick on me. I sort of still feel that way a little bit. Everything happens for a reason but I wonder why God chose me to have the brain tumor? Michelle says "One day Gray said, you know what mom? Sometimes, bad things just happen. And not for a reason"
HA! I get hurt so you don't have too. Stoked you like WRP. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a stuntman so dreams can come true. The Lambo is SICK!
Unfortunately not, it got chopped up and tested for cancer
Good morning awesome folks! As a fairly new father, having something like this happen to my daughter is one of my greatest fears. So I guess this question is aimed more at Lady Crimson: What were the early signs of Gray's illness? What led to the discovery of his tumors? You guys are great and I wish you all the best in the future. Thanks for doing this.
Ok Tory, imagine you, Kari, and Grant are working diligently on a new build in your shop overnight. You emerge to find that the zombie apocalypse took place while you were too busy to notice. Now, using only what you have available in your shop, how do you get yourselves and your crew to safety outside the city?
Firstly, sorry about your eye! I can't relate to that, but I've known people who have gone blind, deaf, etc. (Which aren't really the same) but anyway, 1. Kind of disgusting question, but what happens to your eyelids when you don't have an eye? Do they just fall into the socket?shudders Do they remove them in surgery? 2. How does depth perception work for you now, since you don't have two perspectives of vision? How do you manage in places you've never been?
Those mainly just see if you reach a certain character limit and if you follow their requirements of using a mix of caps, lowercase, numbers, and special symbols. Longer passwords with variety are would take much longer to brute force.
However, that all goes out the window if the website stores plaintext passwords and someone is able to hack into it.
I've learned so much from so many of them, I wouldn't pick one. I mean I love Tony Scott, God rest his soul. I've had great success with Spike and Ed Swick. Obviously great success with Antoine Fuqua, those are the ones that I just mentioned. I love and miss Tony. One of the best filmmakers is really...I'm going to say everybody and all the ones I leave out are going to be pissed but...c’est la vie. That's a good group right there. I'm sure I left out somebody.
From Michelle, something seemed off. I would say motherly instincts. Something seemed off that I couldn't figure out and I would take him to the pediatirition. It was pressure in his head that would build up at night and he couldn't sleep. He would wake up very disoriented. After he would be up for a while, he would be fine. Anything that is persistently off, he was symptomatic at four. I didn't get him diagnosed until six. You kind of have to go by developmental milestones. But it's hard to tell at that age and you don't want to take him to the hospital all the time
From Gray, people thought my mom was crazy. But she was right
Get out of my head! We have these conversations all the time. Take whatever vehicle we can reach, A-team it out with armor, a flamethrower and then load it up with zombie destroying contraptions.
I had mine removed so I don't know, I had an exenteration but some people have just the eye removed. I read an interesting article about this actually, depth perception isn't fully dependent on two eyes, I have to be careful pouring drinks and sometimes things are further away than I think but all in all its not too bad.
Hi Gray! You're the man! What's your favorite kind of music to dance to?
Hey, long time fan, what was your favorite Myth or project you worked on? I've never heard your favorite ones since you did the Mythbusters episode. Thanks again, love the show!
Yes I felt typecast sometimes, and for any actor rejection. I was always at my best in auditions when I already had a job. I used to call it a smell. You walk in with a smell cause you’re too hungry, you’re thirsty, and they can smell it, but when you’re working you’re like hey I got 15 minutes I gotta go do that.
I think Pharoah’s impression is more like the, I don’t know it was an impression of an impression.
Rock and roll! My favorite song to dance to is "I Love Rock and Roll"
He just sang out the chorus, too
Thanks! My fav myth/moment was blowing up the cement truck. Hands down.
That picture was whilst I still had plaster packing inside so I still have the white dressing but it's not as big now. As its healing inside its just a hole, the skin is healing over like scar tissue and it's very neat, my 3 yr old thinks it's fascinating so it can't be too scary.
If my password hash is stored in md5 and that's what gets released, how secure is my randomly generated 30 character password?
I understand that even seemingly complex passwords like 1qaz2wsx3edc4rfv aren't secure because of their relationship to the qwerty keyboard, but something like Fr0Ot`sUpngcX§XlB7q7$Cqkd2w8Tc seems impossible to crack from the md5 sum in a relatively quick amount of time under a decade, or even a century.
Quick question: What sort of acting role would you like to tackle that you haven't tried yet? Thanks!
Morning gray, hope your day is going well. If I may ask, what advice would you give someone who has just been diagnosed with brain cancer?
Also thank you for the ama!
When you left Mythbusters, did you three know you'd eventually be doing another show together?
Since your operation, how is your depth perception now? Have you noticed any of your other senses being higher then what they were (i.e. Hearing, smell)
This breach was in august 2013, before Hillary began campaigning for 2016.
To not worry. That you're in good hands with your family and your doctors. Make sure your family knows that they need to trust what they believe in and not always trust what the doctors say. And your family will always take care of you no matter what you go through
We hoped, but didn't know we were going to get a show like WRP. Still can't believe it.
My hearing has always been my rubbish sense, I've always suffered with my ears and slight hearing loss so I do think it helped my hearing in some ways. I think I'm getting better with my sense of feel, I feel the floor better, if that makes sense at all, I'm more aware of my right side now too.
What was your favorite clip (video thing or whatever) from WRP and why is it Hitler with tits?
Those designs are actually really cute, have you considered taking commissions from people? Do you do sewing-based designs as well, and if not is it something you're looking to incorporate?
How do you feel about people who aren't blind purchasing your eyepatches for stuff like cosplay? Would you be ok with that?
I think my favorite clip so far is Kari controlling me with electrodes. We couldn't stop laughing.
I've sold one for a panto, I would be fine with cos play, I can custom make them to order so anything is possible
Enjoying White Rabbit Project so far!
What would your dream project be? TV or movies, what would you like to be involved in that (maybe) you haven't been already?
Have you ever thought about a glass eye? If so, what's the process for getting one?
Thanks! I'm so glad you're liking it. My dream project would be to direct a movie. Maybe horror or Grind House style.
I am getting a prothesis, I had titanium implants fitted during my exenteration and once I am fully healed I will have magnets attached which will hold my prosthetic eye. As I am missing my eyelid, that is going to be made out of silicone and the glass eye will sit inside that. The prosthetic team will be making a mould of the cavity soon and they will use a computer to match the skin tone. The eye will be painted to match my other one.
Hi Tory! Just a simple one, have you seen Rogue One yet, if so what did you think?!
Have you considered getting a cool chrome eye or something not designed to mimic a human eye? (This is a serious question due to the 'uncanny valley' effect.)
Haven't seen it yet, but planning on going today. STAR WARS!
I hadn't, I expect it would get rather cold! It would look pretty cool though
Are implants and magnets standard now, or is this because you lost the surrounding tissue? From old movies, I thought glass eyes were just balls you could pop in and out.
I had an exenteration, which is the eyeball, eyelid, and all the muscles, tissues and optic nerve removed. I was informed by my surgeon that the eyeball is one third of what fills the socket the other two thirds are mainly muscles and tissue. Therefore I'm having more of a facial prosthesis than a fake eye.
What was your favourite myth to bust?
What's better. Jamies mustache or Adams hair?
Who's better looking out of you, Grant and Kari?
Have you considered putting a small display on an eyepatch with a low-power bluetooth receiver and battery hidden in your eye socket (or wired through the band to something hidden in your hair), and using your phone to animate the patch while you're talking to people? It could be hilarious to have an eye show up on the patch and slowly get angrier and angrier (or turn into the eye of sauron) while in the middle of a conversation.
fav myth: Bull in a china shop what's better:Jamie's mo better looking:Kari is the fairest
That is such an awesome idea, I hadn't but I want one now!
If you could retest any myth, what would it be and why? In other words, what myth causes you to doubt the results of the experiment you devised to test said myth?
Is there any chance in hell you get bionic, see-through walls, laser beam eye?!!
P.S. You're incredibly brave!! Wish you all the best!
Wakeboarding behind a cruise ship. I was so worried about standing up that I didn't really get to enjoy it.
If they start making them I'll be first in line,
What are your opinions on medical cannabis and what is holding you back from CBD trials?
Hi Tory! What is your next project after White Rabbit and do you plan to continue the series? Love the show BTW!
We have a family friend who lost an eye on a skiing accident and said adjusting to depth perception was difficult.
Do you know if you will be able to drive again?
From mom, we actually tried it like five years ago. Had to get him a card. We didn't try it as a treatment, we tried it for anti-anxiety and neuro calming effect. At that point, they didn't have all the blends so the amount they were giving was so much that he would be knocked out. That prevents us from being able to maintain accurate neuro status and that's very important
Happy to hear you're liking WRP. Hopefully we get a season 2. We had a blast making it and would love to keep it going.
I've never learnt to drive anyway but you don't even have to inform DVLA in the UK when losing one eye. I don't know why I find it easy it just seems fine to me.
Watched your video, thanks for being pretty awesome and having way better dance moves than me!
Besides the dancing, how do you like to spend your free time? Any favorite movies or books or hobbies you have?
Hi Tory, HUGE Mythbusters fan and enjoying WRP.
You getting hurt on camera sort of became a thing on Mythbusters. Are you really that accident prone or were some of those scripted? What was the worst time you hurt yourself?
I lost vision in my right eye as an infant, so I never knew what it was like to lose my vision because it was never there. A few questions for you:
Q: Have you noticed depth perception issues like struggling to pour a glass of water or parking a car?
Q: Have you developed your "Spidey Sense" yet? By this I mean an inexplicable realization that something is getting close to you on your blind side even though you cannot see it?
Doing arts and crafts. I like to do all arts and crafts.
EDIT: From Joe, his Pinterest username is "michelleandgray" He loves Pinterest!
There's a little thing call camera courage that when you're being filmed you tend to think you're invincible. I thinks that's always been my problem. Thanks for watching WRP!
Omg I didn't know this was a real thing but I really do, that's so cool! The spidey sense that is, spilling water everywhere is not so great.
I'm enjoying the new show! Now to my question. I've seen you post stuff from IndyCar races a time or two, do you have a favorite driver and have you been to the Indy 500 yet? If not, I highly suggest it.
Have you thought about getting a glass eye? Or do you think that would look too goofy and you're going more for badass?
My favorite Indy drivers are Conor Daly and James Hinchcliffe. Oh and Mario Andretti for sure. I actually got to drive 66 laps at the 500 track in an Indy car. Best day ever.
I'm getting a prothesis but I'll miss my patch
What was your favorite gun to shoot on the show ?
What does it feel like to see with 1 eye? Do you "see" anything different or does it feel the same? I've had these questions since I was a kid.
Dodgers! I have friends that play on a little league Dodgers team so that's why
Looking at a whole room is frustrating as I can't see everything or everyone, but my finer vision is better I feel. It's only a small amount of the right side I can't see, I tend to walk my kids on my blind side so people walk round them and don't startle me
Do you get tired of people focusing on cancer as a defining quality of you? I mean, would you rather people talk about something else more often with you?
If someone offered you $57,000 to jump from a car moving 60mph into the bed of a truck moving 60mph, would you?
If someone offered you $20 to jump off of a bridge into definitely-deep-enough water, would you? Assume bridge height is known to be not sufficient for breaking bones.
I half think people just associate me with cancer. But mostly I think people think I'm a normal kid and look like a normal kid. Part of it is because I don't have the typical signs like losing my hair and stuff. It's feels bad when people give me a weird look like they're scared of me when they find out I have cancer. Sometimes my doctors focus on the bad even though I know they are just doing their job and trying to make me better. Sometimes I don't like being at the hospital because of the negativity. Sometimes I feel poisoned with negativity. Outside of the hospital I feel like I can breathe. The negativity is like smog and I'm breathing in the smog. It feels nice and good not to have negative thoughts
I'd take the $57,000 challenge. I've done the second challenge for free.
I have thought about it, I have so many possibilities now.
Ayo Captain Gray!
If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?
Hey Tory! If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Donate all to brain tumor research. To find cures for brain tumors
Pizza, but good pizza.
Hi Captain Gray! Do you play any kind of video games? PC, Console, or mobile, it doesn't matter. If so, what kind of games are you inclined to? First person shooters? Or Racing games? or Role-playing games?
What was the biggest/ most challenging project that you did with Mythbusters and what did you have to do?
Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo DS. I play food games on my iPad. Cake Mania is one
I think one of the biggest builds we did was for earthquake myths. We built a 40ftx40ft earthquake simulator. When it started shaking it was terrifying, but awesome!
I've seen you wear Nevada Wolfpack shirts on Mythbusters, and I wondered: Are you a UNR alum? I know they have an excellent engineering program, but I'd just always wondered.
Oh I loved that shirt. No, I didn't go to school there. I found the shirt at a second hand store.
Kari is that you?
Hey, I really like the episode of MB where you were trapped under all the earth. It looked absolutely terrifying and it definitely freaked me out.
Has there ever been a test that you've said no to because of how dangerous/scary it is? Or is there a hypothetical test you would never do?
I wanted to test going over a waterfall in a barrel at the Niagara Falls, but the Canadian Govt said no.
Hi Tory, huge fan here!!
Question: If you tried to jump over that wagon again with the same bike could you make it??
If I had a BMX bike then for sure I'd try again.
First of all thank you for taking the time to do this AMA. I love the mythbusters and started watching the white eabbit project a few days ago. When you started in mythbusters, did you think it was going to be this amazing?, and how happy were you when you found out that you were hired for the mythbusters? How did you fill when the show ended? And how happy were you when you three started working together again in the white rabbit project?
Again, Thank you very much :)
It's my pleasure. Good question. I was terrified when I started on MB. I didn't like being in front of the camera. None of us predicted the show would take off like it did. I was bummed when MB ended, but was also excited about the prospect of new projects and then White Rabbit Project happened. It's been a wild ride.
You were one of my first celebrity crushes! Hello!
My question is: what is your favorite build of all time?
Ha! Thanks. Favorite build of all time would be two big rig trucks crashing head on.
Do you have any advice on growing beards, given that yours is one of the most beautiful of its kind?
HAHA! Be patient. I'm Italian though so I might have an unfair genetic advantage.
Hi Tory! What's your favourite/least favourite fan experience?
I'm sure you've met some odd-balls.
Our fans are so nice. Once at the airport I was flying from Canada to the US and the CA border security yelled to her co-workers when she saw my ID, "Hey this is that crazy guy from MB who blows stuff up."
