macgyver

Over at Guns & Coffee, Fred’s buddy MacGyver fell victim to a broken extractor spring on his AR-15 bolt when they were at the range.

His friend, who is an Army Engineer Officer came up with this fix:

Yes that’s a rubber band, and it worked. Awesome.

The talk about Macgyver in the Disarm The Bomb Alarm Clock post reminded me of this gun related xkcd comic:

For those of you that didn’t get your fix of bomb disarming in the movie The Hurt Locker or old MacGyver episodes:

The Danger Bomb Alarm Clock is the answer!

How it works:

  • A minute before the alarm is set to go off, the clock starts beeping.  You need to defuse it by unplugging the correct wire according to the colored LEDs on the front.
  • If you ignore the beeping long enough, once the clock reaches 10 seconds it will count backwards in Japanese, and if it reaches zero and you were unable to disarm the bomb
  • KABOOOOOM have fun listening to a loud exploding nose over and over.

Sounds like a good idea in order to get a person out of bed in the morning.  After watching the youtube video, I think disarming the bomb and waking up would be a far better option than listening to that obnoxious explosion over and over.
