What's your best "MacGyver" moment?
You have a situation, you are limited to the resources on hand, and the clock is ticking. What situation have you "MacGyver'd" yourself through and were the hero for the moment?
For me, our house humidifier died 2 days ago. Knowing how quick a house with wood floors can dry out, and with it being frigid cold out, heat running near constant, I thought of a fast solution: 1 large stock pot, 1 recirculating fish tank pump from an old fish tank stored in the garage, 1 long plastic cutting board. I set up the stock pot full of water, set the cutting board in the pot leaving about 8 inches exposed out of the water (vertically), connected the fish pump in the water and the output tube at the top of the cutting board in order to create an exposed water surface. Basically it was a crude wall fountain. Built in about 10 minutes, including gathering supplies. It worked, our house humidity went from 19% to 38% in 48hrs.
I'm no longer shocking everything I touch.
