When in Doubt, Glue it!

Super glue is for more than just gluing broken household items.

While most people consider super glue, real name cyanoacrylate, as a go-to tool for fixing broken items, they do not realize is that super glue should be included in their first-aid kit. The next time you cut yourself cooking, fall off your bike or try to do some "home improvement," super glue could save you a trip to the ER. Super-gluing wounds has long been a backup medical treatment method. Anyone can try pouring a little super glue on your next cut, pushing the skin together, letting it dry. Good as new! Hell, if it can fix your rearview mirror, it should be able to fix your finger.
