I am so much better than Macgyver its not even funny

    I fixed my broken CPU with a thumbtack and a staple. It works beatifully now, good as new. I'd like to see Macgyver top that.

    He'll kill you with a mouse and a flashlight.

    I once saw him merely glance at a train, and it stopped out of fear.

    Well, that and the duct tape he put on the tracks.

    So what. Feynman used to fix radios by thinking.

    Bah, that panzy couldn't fight his way out of a prison with a tube sock and a pack of gum if his life depended on it....oh wait....

    Really though, it was pretty terrifying.

    Are you conspiring to deflect Aunt Selma and Aunt Patty's ( from the Simpsons) affections for MacGuyver to yourself? :rofl: :biggrin: :devil:

    That's nothing. I had to make a call with a cell phone with a broken battery. I took the battery from a different cell phone (which didn't fit) and hooked it up with three trash can bag binders, it worked :biggrin:

    I know how to nail jello to a tree.

    I'm actually impressed. I would have rejected the notion of the binders thinking they'd heat up too much and not deliver enough voltage.

    I knew that I couldn't be the only one who can't make it right.

    I was trapped at work all day without a lighter once, so I cut the plug off of a lamp cord, pulled out a couple of the thin strands of wire, and used the batteries out of my camera to make a resistance heater. :approve:
    Luckily, one of my customers who showed up later had a spare lighter and gave it to me before I had to try it again.

    That wasn't Macguyver, it was Chuck Norris.

    As the standard list of Chuck Norris facts said, Chuck Norris counted to infinity...... twice! I'd like to see Macguyver do that, even with a rubber band, a staple and two cocktail sticks!

    Everyone knows MacGuyver doesn't kill anyone. :rolleyes: He's just use the cord of the mouse to make a loop to pick up a water droplet that he'd use as a lens (now, shush, we're talking MacGuyver here...he could do it :approve:) to amplify the light from the flashlight to momentarily blind you while he tossed the ball from the mouse under your foot to trip you, and could then bind you with his trusty roll of duct tape. :biggrin:

    What is this, anyway?

    except that :bugeye: resembles more closely to O.O

    So, thinking outside the box means to stay inside the box?! :bugeye: :rofl:
