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.

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

Instructables user cbaabc73 came up with a cheap and easy way to turn off outlets when you aren't using them. He built it after noticing his wife kept leaving the curling iron plugged, which can be extremely dangerous. This DIY project takes only basic tools without the use of soldering.
