“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” –
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Sign of Four
“We all want to believe in impossible things, I suppose, to  persuade ourselves that miracles can happen.” –
Paul Auster, The Book of Illusions
“He possessed the logic of all good intentions and a knowledge of all the tricks of his trade, and yet he never succeeded at anything,  because he believed too much in the impossible. Surprising? Why so? He was forever in the act of conceiving it!” –
Charles Baudelaire
“She shook her head and whispered, “No. No! That can’t be true. Impossible!”“You think things have to be possible? Things have to be true!” –
Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife

Things That Make You Go
 Hmmm...
 
This week’s TTMYGH revolves around “Macs.” The rst is a man-turned-verb who was capable of extricating himself from seemingly hopeless situations, armed with an array of tools seemingly singularly unsuited to the purpose; and the second is an ingenious, though ultimately futile, plot device which has been used by everyone from Welles to Hitchcock to Tarantino.Though at rst blush it’s hard to see a link between the two, in today’s world there are Angus MacGyvers everywhere, beetling away with duct tape and Swiss army knives, trying to extricate themselves from completely hopeless situations; and if they are to succeed before the credits roll, they must rely upon one very important thing: the suspension of disbelief by their audience.That’s where the other “Mac” comes in.Man rst.Angus MacGyver was a troubleshooter. He worked for the ctional Phoenix Foundation as a secret agent and also for the US government in the (also ctional) Department of External Services.Educated as a scientist and possessing an encyclopedic knowledge of the physical sciences, MacGyver had been a bomb disposal technician during the Vietnam War and possessed a distinctly pacist outlook on life — he hated guns.Also, his luck could scarcely be described as merely “good.”Somehow, over the course of seven seasons, MacGyver managed to get himself into some 139 impossible-to-get-out-of situations — each of which he managed to navigate successfully by using conventional items in a distinctly unconventional way.
