    Harry Coover, Super Glue’s Inventor, Dies at 94

    Good that he lived long enough to be honored by President Obama to receive the National Medal of Technology and Innovation last year.

    Cooper also had 460 patents....WOW!

    Also cool to find out:

    I have to thank him for the Superglue that I used to put my car tail light back together after my bitch neighbour broke it. Took me a few years to replace the tail light. But in the meantime it held together strong. Fantastic stuff.

    Hope he doesn't get "stuck" in purgatory ;)

    RIP...and thanks for helping me glue a lot of important things back together.
