Hi,
I am writing the story "Mac's Greatest Performance" and I need a few MacGyverisms that I could use in it. Could you all help me by giving me some ideas? Thanks notworthy.gif jump.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I think we'll need to know some situations and ideas of what you want to do with the macgyverisms first. smile.gif

If I give a situation it would give away parts of the story.

So how can we give you ideas if we don't know what we're working with or what the situation is?

laugh.gif I might need to do this myself...

Anyway...you don't have to give away the whole situation. Maybe gives us a general idea of where he is (for example: a kitchen), what his general goal is, (for example: he needs a clock), and maybe what he's got immediate access to (for example a couple of potatoes and wire). laugh.gif I know my example's not great, but you get the idea. Maybe once we know that stuff we could help. wink.gif

Thanks for your answers. The real reason that I did not want to give any senarios is because I am still writing the story and do not know what is coming next. I am waiting for the end just like everyone who ha sbeen reading my story, I write on the spur of the moment.

If you attach the two terminals of a charged lead-acid battery directly together, it'll explode.

Spray cans thrown in a fire or heated will explode.

Paprika would hurt real bad in the eyes.

If you take a bunch of matches, and cut all but the phosphorous heads off, and put them in a tennis ball through a hole, it'll make some sort of smoke bomb. (I think)

Take all the gun powder out of several bullets, put it in a container, and add a fuse, and you have a simple bomb.

Maybe you should go look at the MacGyverism page and hope one fits your story.

There's your answer. That's how I work at least. It really isn't easy, to come up with your own MacGyverisms. But looking on the list isn't original but it is an alternative.
