This week’s highlights include:
Here’s a link if you’re interested in buying a MacGyver-style hockey table. (Link courtesy of the MacGyverOnline.com store.)
Here are some clips of Paul Rudd’s new movie.
Oh look, the first MacGruber sketch.

Film badge dosimeter (Physics)
The film badge dosimeter, or film badge, is a personal dosimeter used for monitoring cumulative radiation dose due to ionizing radiation.
The badge consists of two parts: photographic film or dental X-ray film, and a holder. The film is removed and developed to measure exposure. The film badge is used to measure and record radiation exposure due to gamma rays, X-rays and beta particles.

It’s nice to see a paper clip alongside the Swiss army knife in MacGyver’s pocket but not the handkerchief… ugh.
I have no idea how they could be comfortable waiting around in the disposal chamber but I liked the way they got out. And it’s good that Amy picked Train’s gun up, not leaving MacGyver a chance to throw it away!
