    I just read that in the news. How incredibly sad!

    I loved the Mythbusters gang. I feel like I've lost a cousin or something. :(

    Such sad news. :(

    I used to really enjoy Mythbusters. I think Mr. Imahara was also Sulu in Star Trek Continues, wasn't he?

    My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

    Very sad news, he was one of those people that did something for science and technology, he was one of those that managed to get other people interested.
    Strength wished to family and friends.

    I had a co-worker die from an aneurysm and it can be so sudden, unexpected and untimely that it can be hard to get a good sense of closure for the survivors. He seemed liked a good guy and I enjoyed him on the Mythbusters "B-Team".

    He was a great part of MythBusters and from the outpouring from his friends a really nice guy. RIP Grant.

    Really sad hearing about this. He always seemed full of energy and enthusiasm for everything I saw in. An essential part of the Mythbusters team.

    Condolences to his family and friends. :( :(

    I got to meet him a few times at Dragon Con. He was a really sweet guy in person and a truly geeky man in the best way. He enjoyed hosting the costume contests because he got to see the best costumes up close.

    49 is too young. :(

    I was very sad to hear about this, I was a huge fan of both Mythbusters and White Rabbit Project, and he was a great part of both shows. RIP:weep:
