Every once in a while I come back to one of the best lists on the web. If you haven’t seen it — it’s worth taking a look if you have even a passing interest in MacGyver:
“This is a list of problems that have been solved by the fictional character MacGyver from the television series of the same name. MacGyver employs his resourcefulness and his knowledge of chemistry, physics, technology and outdoorsmanship to resolve what are often life or death crises. He spontaneously creates inventions from simple items to solve these problems. These inventions became synonymous with the character and were called MacGyverisms by the public. MacGyverisms became a distinct motif of the series. MacGyver was unlike secret agents in other television series and films because he carried only a Swiss Army knife and duct tape, instead of relying on high-tech weapons and tools.”
Gotta love the use of duct tape — fixes almost as many things as a hammer. It’s all about the basics <smile>.
