Main character of show by the same name. Full name Angus Macgyver. Part secret agent for government and phoenix foundation, part handyman, part mad scientist, part community service volunteer. He might refuse to use guns, but nobody could ever call him a pussy. Macgyver can battle soviet supersoldiers and serve soup at a homeless shelter all in one episode. Macgyver was the epitome of 1980s era optimism. Beats the commies, fixes the environment, cures aids, and can make a helicopter out of garbage bags and bamboo. Most importantly, he's the only guy who ever looked cool in a mullet and is probably the only guy who could get away with it now.
Who'd win in a fight? Macgyver or Col Jack O'Neal from Stargate SG-1?

Trivia: On episodes where Macgyver makes explosives from household materials, the producers always leave out one ingredient, fearing that people at home would imitate the recipe. While most inventions and scientific wizardry seen on the show probably wouldnt work too well in real life, they're all scientifically sound and Could work.

The Messerschmitt Bf 109(or Me 109) was a WW2 single engined fighter designed by Willy Messerschmitt and built mainly by Bayerische Flugzeugwerke. It was widely considered the Luftwaffe equivalent to the RAF Spitfire. Although widely derided nowadays as being difficult to fly, poor performing, and aerodynamically unrefined; the Me 109 was still the preferred mount of most of Germany's aces, including Erich Hartmann -the highest scoring ace of all time, with 352 kills. The 109 was first used in the Spanish civil war and served throughout all of WW2, with derivatives being built postwar in Spain and Czechoslovakia. With roughly 33,000 of the countless versions built, the Me 109 was one of the most produced aircraft of all time.
Don't know what a Messerschmitt bf109 looks like? Go watch the movie "Battle of Britain," The bad guys are flying spanish-built versions of the 109. The planes in the movie however, have Rolls-Royce instead of Daimler(Mercedes)engines, and so have pointier noses.

The first fighters of the Israeli Air Force were czech-built Messerschmitts.

Midriff is a coin termed by Douglass Rushkoff of PBS's "Frontline" on an episode entitled "Merchants of Cool." Midriffs are young girls and women(teens-early 20s) whos behavior is a curious mixture of "innocent" and "slutty." Midriff culture is fairly standardized and quite conformist. Their behaviour seems centered around sexuality, narcissism, and complete lack of brains. Rushkoff argued that mass-media replaces teenage individuality with a glorified archetype; midriffs, when referring to females. Hypersexuality and shallowness are often attributed to teenage girls(and something that parents of every generation complain about), so the behavior isn't necissarly new, nonetheless, the notion of Midriff culture being a standardized and conformist patten of behavior rather than youthful exhuberance is scary indeed.

Opposide of Midriffs are Mooks; boneheaded morons and drunken fratboys.
Britney Spears was given as an example of a Midriff icon.

MiG is the design initials for Mikoyan(formerly Mikoyan-Gurevich), a Russian design Bureau-turned-manufacturer. Founded in 1938 by Artem Mikoyan and Mikhail Gurevich, MiG primarily designs fighter aircraft for soviet/russian service. MiG made some pretty good fighters in WW2 but really became legendary during the Korean War with the MiG-15, which was at least equal with the best of contemporary western fighters. After the vietnam war, however, MiGs have been consistently whooped by American fighters such as the F-15. However, this is probably due to the fact that most MiGs involved in wars since the 1970s were downgraded export models flown by poorly trained pilots.

During the Cold War, MiG fighters were the types that American fighters were designed against, due to the fact that dozens of countries around the eastern bloc and third world used the type. "MiG Diplomacy" was a coin termed to describe the Soviet practice of giving newly formed countries a gift of MiG fighters. All production MiG fighters have odd-numbered designations, because stalin said so back in the 1950s. Stalin's long dead, but MiG keeps up the tradition.

Since the 1990s, MiG hasn't seemed to be doing much, thanks to economic hard times in russia and having the spotlight stolen by the well-connected Sukhoi corporation. Nonetheless, MiG managed to pop out the weird looking but kickass MiG-1.44 prototype, as well as several upgraded Fulcrums.
MiG fighters include the
MiG-15(a nasty shock to the USAF in Korea)
MiG-17(an even more embarassing shock to the USAF and USN in vietnam)
MiG-21(the most produced jet fighter ever)
MiG-25(Superfast mystery plane)
MiG-29(A good airplane... thats gotten its ass kicked in every war its seen)

A term coined by Douglas Rushkoff in an episode of PBS's "Frontline" entitled "The Merchants of Cool." Mooks are archetypal young males(teens-early 20s) who act like moronic boneheads. They are self centered simpletons who live a drunken frat-boy lifestyle(or are frat-boys). Examples can be found anytime someone watches "Jackass." Rushkoff claimed that the media glorifies this ideal and stifles natural self expression, however, some people might argue teenage boys have always acted like morons(its actually a long-standing stereotype). Nonetheless, standardized conformist dumbass-culture behind a veneer of exhuberance is a scary notion indeed.

Opposite of Mooks are Midriffs; oxymoronic innocent skanks who are modeled after Britney Spears.
Although everyone likes to blame Jackass, anyone on that show is a model Mook.
