    Super Glue's inventor passes away at 94

    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:
    One of his proudest accomplishments, Dr. Paul added, was that his invention was used to treat injured soldiers during the Vietnam War. Medics, she said, carried bottles of Super Glue in spray form to stop bleeding.

    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.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
