Wish they offered you more, would've been great to see you on the show. Then again, productions tend to take advantage of non-union people and from the looks of the show too many accidents can happen. Wouldn't be worth it to get injured and have them screw you over. Good call.

Now I want to see the episode where Blast clears the warehouse of stray cats by multipliable blasts of explosives.

Produce your own show and sell it to the Discovery Channel.

The BLAST Show: Do NOT Do This at Home!

I see it as sort of an intensified Mythbusters that leans heavily toward explosives and other dangers.

Possibilities:
Survival Fishing with Dynamite
Building Your Own Underground Shelter with Dynamite
Hunting With Dynamite
Various Explosives Used for Providing Firewood When You Don't Have a Chainsaw, Axe or Saw
Detonation of Zombie Hordes

Etc.

Blast, congrats on the anniversary! A friend of mine, upon reaching his 25th told his wife that the first 25-year contract was done, from then on it was going to be on a year-to-year basis.

Sorry that you couldn't take advantage of the show opportunity. But's let's hear the truth, the real reason you turned them down was the scenario about saving your fellow colonist's cat by giving it an emergency bath... I might have actually watched the show if I knew you were going to be on it.

It's difficult to overstate what a good idea this is.
