Public Service Announcement

While cyanoacrylate is, indeed, used as a liquid suture, it might be advisable to seek some form of training in that particular application, because the "intuitive" thing to do -- in your words -- just might send the ER doctor into orbit.

As a "fer instance" let us say you have developed a sudden gaping wound in your leg. Let us further say that you have been told that your best friends' fathers' brother may (or may not) have used Super Glue to save the life of his Company Commander in VietNam...

(Only a complete cynic might opine that it is more likely that you read it on an Internet Forum, or heard it in a Hollywood screenplay, but I digress)

... If you hobble into the kitchen, grab a full tube of Super Glue from the drawer, stuff the nozzle into the afore-mentioned gaping wound, squeeze the entire contents of the bottle there-in -- well, let us say that the next fifteen minutes of jamming the sides of the laceration together are less than useful, shall we?

That was a masterful use of invective on the part of the ER doc, though, wasn't it? Almost poetry.

Nothing but love,

I don't know why ...

... but this made me spew Darjeeling across the room.

Mr President ...

... your drinking cup is ready.

So. Usama bin Laden has been turfed off this mortal coil courtesy of several months hard Intel work, followed by a late-night visit from a SeAL Team.

Well done, lads. Very well done.
