Made a thermite torch using a
magnesium bicycle, iron rust,
and a highway emergency flare

Used a spare airplane part as a
"lateral cranial impact enhancer"

Made smoke bombs from fertilizer,
upholstery batting, starting fluid,
newspaper, duct tape, & matches

Used a fire hose to fight off
pursuing vehicles

Used part of a meat hook
as a screwdriver

Forced open a lock by melting ice
with a lightbulb & sending the water
down a metal rod & cardboard to
refreeze & expand inside the lock

Forced open a door with
a side of beef

Used a remote controlled airplane
to deliver another smoke bomb
soaked in olive oil

Used a rope to trip and
tackle the thief

Prevented an airplane from
taking off by riding the rudder
