I do not have the DVD set, (though I wish I did), I recorded a few myself. I have a weird mind that is always thinking and never stops thinking! I fix things like that too. :-)
One time I was at the bus stop and my sandal strap broke. I then used the ribbon piece off my umbrella handle to make a temporary strap until I got home. I felt so proud of myself, haha! :)
Very good!! That is exactly the type of quick, sharp, thinking which I was talking about.
At Windells Holiday Snowboard Camp, a roommate wanted to light a candle, but didn't have matches. I got fire by holding a paper towel to a turned-on burner; it's an old trick. She complimented me on my McGyver skills!
There you go, a simple thing like that.
Yes. I learned, as you said, a fact or two about science - and math. Plus it had its funny moments. I also now keep duct tape on hand for useful items.
So did I, I still have a few recorded episodes.
I did not see Stargate:SG1, just MacGyver. I liked the show for its strategies and humor and it kept my mind thinking in my own situations.
I used to watch it a while back too. I have some episodes recorded from when I lived in NJ and I was watching one the other night. That is what made me ask this question. Watching the show brought back memories.
Some of them may have been far-fetched, such as stopping a nuclear bomb with one second left. The part that caught my eye though was how he did it, it made my mind become inquiring in real-life situations.
I also enjoyed that show.
I have watched many shows which were well and I liked, but I still caught something in the background which did not match.
I agree, some of the things were extreme; but I used to watch the show all of the time and learned some things which could be done.
