A few notes:

Clearly, we can add vinyl records to the list of materials wood glue is used for.

I've never found a spray glue that doesn't wear off in a matter of days.

Just like this chart, I absolutely swear by the power of hot glue. I recently used it as the only adhesive on my Halloween costume and it held together superbly.

Sun Chao, a crafstman from Kaiyuan, China, spent 4 months working on this project. The result is a fully-functional bicycle made from over 10,000 Popsicle sticks. Its inaugural ride lasted 20 minutes and easily supported his 200lb weight.

That's a lot of terrible jokes to read.

Instructables user PDRWLSN created this pocket-sized flame thrower not because it's freaking awesome, but to as a way to start a quick fire when you're camping and only have access to wet wood. The gun uses materials readily available at any hardware store with butane lighter fluid as a fuel source and a BBQ ignition switch as a trigger. Below is a video showing the machine failing to melt snow. If any of you are crazy enough to try this, please, be safe.
