I once CA’d my RH thumb and forefinger together! Took some VERY careful left-handed cutting with a razor to separate them! :open_mouth:

:rofl: I predict what is soon to follow… Tales of X-Acto Blades stabbing into the femoral artery, and gaping wounds closed-up with CA glue. :hocho::drop_of_blood::tired_face:

Actually, history of Crazy Glue (CA) does mention the fact that it was used as emergency measures for closing wounds in Viet-Nam!

Next time, use acetone to debond it…

Nail varnish remover will all you to separate skin from skin

Sometime many years ago I read a story posted somewhere about CA and inadvertent glueing
The storyteller was an airline pilot / model builder who brough a kit and tools et.c with him on long flights when he would have to stay the night before the return flight.
This time the air conditioning didn’t work or didn’t exist so he was very lightly dressed while
working on the model, using superglue, extremely lightly dressed, no textile fabric at all basically …
He spilled glue in his lap … realised the spillage too late since he was focused on the assembly task … an important part of his anatomy ended up glued to the inside of his thigh …
in a hotel room in a foreign country …

I don’t know if this story is true, I’m simply reporting what I read many years ago …

Brings to mind “Jim” (Jason Biggs) in American Pie 2, in the porn tape scene. :rofl:

Wow, times have changed. Back in the day it was long exposure to Testors glue (red/white tube) in a not so ventilated area which in my case was the basement.

Um what was I talking about? Oh nevermind.
