What I Learned From Macgyver -episode 1

I never watched MacGyver as a kid- and I'm paying the price. Here are my observations and learned lessons as I start watching this series as an adult.
  1. Stealing a guards uniform and only putting on the upper half is enough to fool the rest of them- no one will notice your jeans and bright blue spats
  2. When you're trying to deactivate a missile and none of your missile deactivating tools work, a paper clip will always save the day
  3. Smash the end of a flare gun and it works as a rocket thruster to BASE jump off a giant cliff
  4. If you're rich and smart and like MacGyver your house is the Griffith Observatory
  5. Always keep a pack of cigarettes on you. It comes in handy when you need to make invisible lazers visible.
  6. The bag is not for what you take its for what you find along the way -MacGyver
  7. Chocolate neutralizes sulfuric acid. If there's a major acid leak from a giant explosion- just wedge some chocolate bars in the leak- it's a great bandaid- also wanted to add that Mythbusters confirmed that this works
  8. you gotta know your morse code- it'll tell the guys to stop that missile aimed at you by flipping the lights on and off when all other communication is cut off
