In another online life I am a member of a family-oriented clan that has amongst its denizens a very bright and technically capable guy named Mike who began a thread called 'My McGyver Moment'.
He made a couple of very nice posts about indeed McGyver-like moments getting his stuff to do what he wanted... Another venerable subsequently posted that when he tried to think about McGyver moments, all of his 'moments' in retrospect were more like 'redneck' moments, and he was too embrrassed to put any of them up. On review, I was forced to the same conclusion, as no doubt were many others, and hence the premature death of what should have been a promising thread!
Now, like the Island of Lost Toys, there is a place for all of those 'other' moments and those that are just silly as well.
I will start, as I have something I want to get off my chest from just last night!
