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.

RO&AD, an architectural firm whose name sounds very much like a quote from an intoxicated Chris Farley, recently designed The Trench Bridge. A pedestrian foot path designed to make us rethink the way we look at bridges, this one crosses the moat in front of Fort de Roovere in Halsteren. A neat concept, but one that would only be applicable on a small scale to bodies of water that stay at a constant depth.

Build Your Own Flamethrower!

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.

Caron Rotisseries, a company that must have been founded by Q in his retirement, recently released its newest product; a portable rotisserie grill. Perfect for a day at the beach, an EXTREMELY nonchalant office, or if you feel like walking around looking like a professional assassin.

It comes with a removal charcoal pan for grilling and the rotating skewers can be powered by A/C adapter or lithium battery. No word on how much this barbecue beast weighs but at a cost of $719, you're sure to be the only one on the block with one.
