Is there anything MacGyver can’t do?

I was browsing Kottke and he had a link to a list of problems solved by that king of all mullets, MacGyver. I have to say, I’m impressed by the length and detail of this list. I’m also impressed by MacGyver. I mean, just in the pilot he “defuses a highly advanced nuclear warhead using a paper clip to short circuit the timing device.” This kind of makes me want to watch some old MacGyver episodes. I remember digging this show as a kid – science was COOL! Stuff blew up! His jeans were so tight! How did he do all those dive rolls in them? The world may never know. But it will know how to defuse a warhead with a paperclip. Thanks big Mac!
