Sometimes you simply don’t have the time or the money to get certain things fixed and once that happens, you’re stuck with a problem that remains unresolved for a very, long time. Unless, of course, you have the powers of MacGyver. In case you aren’t familiar with MacGyver, it was a television series about a special agent who could basically fix anything and fight off crime with a little more than duct tape and a paper clip.
Just take a look at some of these do-it-yourself hacks that people came up with to fix their problems. Some of these would make MacGyver proud and others would make him cringe, especially #18.
#1. How clever.
#2. Hotdogs will be done in 5 minutes!
