The DIY (Do It Yourself) trend is reaching an all time high. And as people build their own coffee tables and home decor, grow their own fuits and veggies, and undertake all kinds of creative projects, I think it's time we pay our respects to the King of DIY: MacGyver.
Anyone that watched television in the late '80s and early '90s marveled at the mental capacity of Macgyver: "His mind is his weapon." We aspired to be like him until we realized how much school we'd have to go through to get there. The man could build a bomb using only a paper clip, a match book, and a stick of gum. He could defuse a nuclear bomb using nothing more than a pocket knife and a bobby pin. He could construct an affective booby trap with only shoelace and a broom handle. All this while rocking one of the most respectable mullets of all time. A mullet that could compete with the likes of Chuck Norris, AC SLater, and Michael Bolton. He should have been sponsored by Swiss Army and Vidal Sassoon. So as you go about your projects, adding creativity and self-fulfillment to your life, observe a moment of silence for Macgyver: the DIY King.
