MACGYVERISMS


Stole a horse using an
airlift by helicopter


Stopped a truck using lightbulbs
sandwiched between wood to
simulate a flat tire


Created a chemical explosion
using salt, sugar, weed killer
and battery acid


Used an unmanned bulldozer to
knock down a guard tower and
create a barbed wire barricade


Created an explosion by igniting
paprika with a match


Made a magnifying glass using a
bent hair pin dipped in wine


Used slices of a credit card to alter
the timing of a traffic signal and
cause a traffic jam


Taped a radio to a police radio and
elevated them with balloons to
jam police radio signals
