"It’s a disgrace, sending your little brother into danger like that. Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes."
I feel like in the context of His Last Vow, Mycroft’s reaction in this scene makes a lot more sense.
I’ve always thought Mycroft’s “Oh, shut up, Mrs. Hudson!” was a strange, and bizarrely strong, reaction on his part. It’s true that he’s capable of being just as callouss and socially inept as Sherlock, but we also know that his position has caused him to develop a certain level of manners and diplomacy. It seems out of character for him to lose his composure just because a sweet old lady chastises him.
Unless she was touching on a sensitive subject.
Imagine that this line in His Last Vow implies what we think it implies: that there was a third Holmes brother, and that Mycroft was somehow involved in his demise.
If he’s harboring guilt about this it’s no wonder he prickles at Mrs. Hudson’s seemingly innocent comment.

C: Yeah! Course I am, why wouldn’t I?
D: I just thought…
C: Thought what?

dj roomba is literally the greatest thing thats ever happened to me
is that Jan…
by the way did I ever tell y’all about the time I got a blank message from nobody, sent on new year’s eve in 1969, when the internet didn’t exist?
because that happened
What the fuck
Or maybe its from 2069, when we’ve developed the technology to send data to the past. You sent yourself a blank message as a test but as the email address you used to send it doesnt exist yet, it came up as no sender
OKAY KIDS, LET’S LEARN ABOUT THE UNIX EPOCH
So back in the early days of computers, when we were trying to build clocks to keep all our computers in sync, we tried a bunch of different ways to synchronize them in ways that both normal people could use and programmers could utilize.
We just tried saying “The current time is THIS date” and just storing that date as some text, but while that was easy for humans, it was a bunch of different numbers that worked together in funny ways and computers don’t play nice with a bunch of random, arbitrary rules.
Not much worked, until we realized that we needed a BASELINE to compare against, and a way to represent the current time that covers everybody. So we came up with Unix time, because Unix was the style at the time. Essentially, Unix time represents any given time by saying “How many seconds ago was 12:00 AM on January 1, 1970 in Iceland somewhere?”. Recent enough to keep the numbers relatively small, far enough that nothing computer-y would fall before it, and consistent enough that there’d be no discrepancy based on where you are.
So what happens when you see the date “December 31, 1969” on a buggy message like this is that the computer received a bunch of zeroes by mistake and went “Oh, this must be a message!” Then when it tried to interpret it, it got to the date, found a zero, and said “Zero seconds since the Unix Epoch? I’ll round down - this was sent at the last second of New Year’s Eve, 1969! They’ll be so happy to finally get their blank message.”
And then the computer traipsed off on its merry way, because computers are fucking ridiculous.
