Hoff vs MacGyver

Mellie at Randomcontributionz blogs about who would be the most expensive to insure; Michael Knight, Mitch Buchannon or MacGyver?. NZ's Accident Compensation Corporation ponders the big issues.
  • Mitch's dickstickers are a risk
  • KITT's turbo boost risks head and neck injuries
  • but then again MacGyver works without safety equipment and who knows who is underwriting Phoenix Foundation (perhaps they self insure)?
I wonder how long it will take for the less hmourous trolls to howl about the public service wasting tax payers' dollars?

The main costs that ACC cover are actually outside work injuries anyway - even though they may apportion cost premiums on the basis of occupation if you look at the stats of in / out of work injuries and costs most are actually sports related.

So you need to ask which of Michael, Mitch and MacGyver play the most dangerous sports in their own time - I'd go for MacGyver...

Agreed, Hoff sport would be strictly sack-time whereas I imagine MacGyver being a bit of a squash player/golfer...
