"My beauty gives me special powers: Stand next to me, you'll feel invisible."

And then there's this. I haven't mentioned in a while another bizarre sleep-related habit of his: Often, when Adam wakes up, it is quite suddenly and with a fully-formed, completely coherent pronouncement.

Adam is talking about a MythBusters episode from last week in which they tackle a scene from the Bourne Supremacy involving a magazine, a toaster, and a gaggle of blown-up bad guys.
ADAM: (waking suddenly) The timer on the toaster! The timer.
KAREN: The timer on the toaster?
ADAM: Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. You know on that MythBusters one, when they had the magazine in the toaster?
KAREN: (incredulously) Yes?
ADAM: It can't work because there's always a timer in the toaster and you can't get the toaster to work for 12 minutes. There's no toaster that toasts for 12 minutes.
KAREN: I have to ask you: How is it possible—
ADAM: I just thought of it.
KAREN: But you must have thought of it while you were still asleep!
ADAM: I had a picture in my head of the toaster.
KAREN: Oh my god.
ADAM: I remember seeing the toaster, and I'm like, yeah, imagine him walking out the door and hearing the toaster just go "ca-ching!" He would be like "Fuck, I put it on to light toast again!"

  2. I can set my toaster oven for up to an hour. Should we try this? Maybe not, as Adam and Jamie would say "Don't try this at home!"

  4. Is it a timer or a thermostate? I'm pretty sure it's a thermostate.

  5. "I put it on light toast again." How warm this makes me feel because we all know that toast never pops up with the exact right shade.
