MacGruber thinks that just because he’s got a similar name, a mullet and a bomb to diffuse that he can roll like MacGyver. No way — not in our books. (He doesn’t exactly have the best track record, besides.)
MacGruber has all the ridiculous materials he needs, but he just can’t put them together like MacGyver does. Could he fix a blown fuse with a gum wrapper? MacGyver can. Check out that, along with five more of Angus’ best tricks below.

It’s tempting to think of the iPad as a giant iPhone or iPod Touch. Everything you whipped out your iPhone to do, you’ll now want to pull out your iPad for.
But that’s not the way it works. iPad is not a giant iPhone or iPod Touch. For one thing, an iPad is a little bulky and fragile to casually whip out for a quick check of the time.

You’ll use iPad for more time-filling functions — book or newspaper reading, [...]

Looking out into the depth and width of the universe is a big darn job, but luckily we’ve got big darn telescopes to do it with. Not only are they big, but a lot of these telescopes are pretty crazy looking, too, as astronomers find new methods in penetrating the heavens. A lot of telescopes use one mirror, but some use two. There’s even an observatory that skips a one-telescope solution, and just goes for four mega ‘scopes.
Kick off your journey by hitting up the gallery below to see six of the world’s biggest, craziest and most powerful telescopes, from the inside and [...]
