"Hey Kyle, I'll bet you're taller than your dad."
This fucking sucks so hard :(
Thank you @mertesn for finding the Mars rover boarding pass. I've embedded it into the home page (not on mobile).
NASA is collecting names to send with the rover in 2020. Registration ends today.
Remember that time Brian's kids won everything?
Just want y'all to know that Kyle's computer was named "Buttpuncher"
The fundraiser just crossed $15,000. Thank you, everyone.
I remember when Brian, Kyle, Perry, and Lincoln drove down three and a half hours from Warren to help me move into my first apartment in Columbus. I was totally new to the Midwest.
Turns out I was moving in on the first football game day of the season. I didn't know anything about this Ohio State/Michigan rivalry thing, or that people could get heckled for driving with Michigan plates on game day. After we were done unloading the moving truck, we walked past campus looking for some food. I'll always remember when rowdy drunk folks stumbled out of bars, then, seeing these two kids walking with us, they tried to temporarily pull themselves together and look like adults in front of Kyle and Perry.
I think of my first trip to the Warren house for Expo and Kyle showing me his Legos. I think they were Bionicles. He was passionate and his enthusiasm was contagious.
Aaron and I were hanging out at the Icrontic house (or as my daughter calls it, The NERD House), probably playing DND. Kyle swaggers in with a trenchcoat and hat, looking sauve, with a giant smile. I remember thinking he was pretty young to have that sort of presence. Super large personality.
Kyle walked over to Brian with a sideways grin and confidently asked for some money and the car keys. He rolled a natural 20 in persuasion with a +8 to charisma. Resistance was futile.
