Call Me McGyver

You can call me McGyver. Earlier this evening I fixed a 50 year old bathtub with a combination of parts stripped from odds and ends, sheer determination and a minmal amount of swearing.

I don’t care if you are impressed or not, I am. Somehow it worked.

And on a note that is only going to be understood by some, I have an overwhelming urge to shout “Back off man, I am a scientist!”

    Don’t sell yourself short.


    You are correct, I bow my head.


    There is more to the story but I didn’t want to brag. 😉


    I wish that my tub was only ten years old.


    I used my inner child. At heart I am still just a boy.

    Awesome! Scientists are creative…it takes a lot of creativity to be resourceful enough to fix a 50-yr old tub with a few odds and ends. 🙂

    If you were REALLY McGuyver, not only would you have fixed the tub, but you would somehow have been able to use it to thwart the villains right outside your home.

    Still tho, if I would have fixed it, there would have been the maximum amount of swearing so I find the act impressive nonetheless

    For it to count as a real McGyver fix you need to include duct tape as one of the key resources used. Otherwise it’s just impressive. 🙂

    I am definitely impressed, Mc.
    I couldn’t fix a bathtub if I had the best parts and was guided by a professional.
