MACGYVERISMS


Picked a door lock with the awl
blade of a Swiss Army knife,
behind his back, without looking


Used a toaster oven and a bag
of ice as a trigger for precariously
balanced pots as a distraction


Used vegetable oil on the floor
to create a slippery surface
to delay pursuit


Used a hose as a trip wire


Used a chaise lounge as a restraint


Checked for intruders using a
special light to make footprints
visible on a treated doormat


Floated hollow reeds on a piece
of wood to simulate someone
breathing under water


Made a blow gun from a hollow
reed and a whittled dart dipped
in sap from a Urtica plant


Used the sharp edge of a stone as
an ax to chop the branch of a tree


Took out a jeep using a
stuffed vest as a decoy
and a falling branch


Made landmines from pinecones
and pine pitch lit by a match


Made a natural antibiotic by mixing
crushed pyrite (iron sulfide)
with clay


Created spontaneous combustion
by igniting floating grain dust


Sawed partially through a
wooden beam to cause the
support to collapse


Harry created a decoy by remotely
tugging on a curtain with a wire


Harry simulated the sound of
gunfire by throwing pine nuts
into a fire
