Been a long time. grin

Was gluing some British carriers down on their bases when I noticed two of my fingers were… attached to each other! Tube of glue had cracked.

Fortunately, water and dish soap did the trick.

I always advise people to take a long hot shower and wash your hair.

Why do you want them to wash my hair? grin

See, that's why a solid grounding in English language pronouns is essential.

You can't do it, fingers are stuck together, remember.
Oh, and welcome to the club! Now we need a pithy name for it:
The Four Finger Fellas?
Sticky Finger Crew?

Now that makes for a complete weekend: glue your fingers together, and let people wash your hair.

I'm looking forward to Saturday already.

I find nail varnish remover does the trick even if the whole tube burst because you are squeezing hard to get it through a blocked nozzle and you have glued your whole hand shut.

Very entertaining thread! Thank you. Good luck in the separation.

Good luck in the separation.

Just don't let it devolve into a divorce. Having some of your fingers pack up and leave is going to negatively affect your painting.

,,,and affect the drying time of your hair using your hands and a towel,,,


As an aside,,,o they make a hair dryer for those who can't use an opposible thumb?

I have a small bottle of Acetone, works wonderfully!

Stryderg03 Aug 2021 9:18 a.m. PST

do they make a hair dryer for those who can't use an opposible thumb?

They sure do! link

Good thing that you didn't have to go to the bathroom…

Acetone is a wonder worker for ungluing your fingers from Peter Pig treads-to-tank assembly!!!!!!

Look at the bright side: at least you didn't go to scratch your nose before you discovered the fingers were stuck together. It would be inconvenient to find your fingers stuck to our nose. And, citing a previous TMP thread, think how bad it might have been to be photographed on the way to the neighbors' or even the fire department for help with your fingers stuck to your nose. You could become an add on to a model railroad display like the naked guy chasing the wild boar.

I got it in my eye once. Visit to the ER later, after they shrugged, laughed, and told me I wasn't going to lose my sight in the eye, they reminded me Super Glue was invented as a means of sutures. They told me, wait a few hours, the eye would clear up…and it did.

Got some Gorilla Glue on the tip of a finger a few times. I used a Bic razor to gently shave it off,prepping it w/soap and water first.

Did the same this week, stuck a tree to my finger, managed to pull it off. Left a nice pattern for awhile. Enough soakings get it off.
Apparently Stevie Ray Vaughan, the late great blues guitarist used to play so hard he wore his fingertips out regularly. He used to stick superglue on his arm and then stick his fingertips into it to create new skin! Ouuchh. That's dedication for you!
