    Yes, it is, but it’s the WORST babysitter ever.

    Yep!

    I super glued a turquoise stone I was working on to my fingers.... A big 3" x 1" chunk! No acetone at home so had to drive to hardware store and hide my hand so I didn't look like a fool.

    Got home and got it off quick! Now no one will ever know how foolish I was!

    Till now I guess......

    I saw some YouTube videos of a guy who stuck his head in a microwave with the door removed, head wrapped in plastic and straws to breathe, then had his buddies pour plaster in upside down.
    Eventually he panicked and they called the fire Dept, firemen were not amused.
    Guess he got lots of hits if not viral?

    It's been at least 15 years since I've heard anyone say "ate up."

    "Did you see what that guy did on TV last night?" "Yeah. Man, that was ate up!"

    Lots of unbright in the world. My fav, was the chicks (two of the same intellectual capacity) we friended up at a party, left with them to grab more beer and a frozen pizza, and head to their place. Sitting in the den area, noticed a burning odor, went in the kitchen where the two lovelies staring at smoke pouring from around the oven. I open, pull the pizza out....still on the cardboard. I separate the pizza, and we laugh, but the look on their faces clearly revealed great mystery, and wonderment of what was wrong. I tried explaining, and it wasn't happening. I learned a great lesson at 19 years of age (legal age at the time). We left immediately after wolfing said pizza, and we took the beer, lol.

    My wife just super glued the tip of my finger and finger nail back together. I was using a cordless drill and went through the end with a spinning Phillips head. :mad:

    Why does the stupid crap people are doing these days, just not sound like a lot of fun? I mean, you used to be able to have a lot more fun than gluing your hair together with construction glue, or drinking bleach. Sign of the times?

    OK, I had to look this up. Turns out the guy was faking it for the virals, hoping it would bring in some extra money because the current situation has put him out of a decent job as a carpenter.

    I guess I have to sympathize with the guy, but what the actual... :confused:

    There are folks, further down the chart, than Mr. Keith.

    No, I didn't want to believe it either - but it checks out.

    Glue is useful stuff. The problem is clearly the personnel, not the product here.

    I have a theory. Intelligence, or at least aspirations of being intelligent, goes with an ability to entertain yourself with the entire universe of mystery and curiosity. Those less endowed, or less motivated, can't think without feeling. Even if it requires feeling full attention and risk of acting out in public or on camera, or the flesh being torn from your face, as you remove a glued solo cup.

    Ah, good ol' Prop. 65. Since almost anything can cause cancer in the right amount or if abused, and since it was so poorly written (or everyone is afraid of suits) you see these warnings applied to damn near everything to the point it has completely lost all meaning. The parking structure at the office has a Prop 65 placard because cars go there and they contain things such as used oil that can cause cancer. Their exhaust soot can cause it.
    The last body I bought for a partscaster build had a slip of paper in the box with the Prop 65 warning. I suppose if I pull a Hendrix and inhale it deeply it could be carcinogenic, but c'mon...

    People who super glue nuts onto guitar necks should have solo cups glued to their _____________.
