A Few Types of Glue

Here are some of the many types of glue and some background information on them.
 
Polyvinyl Glue- also known as white glue. The most common in the kingdom of glues. This type of glue is very inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere. Children in pre-school find it especially useful for its ability stick things together as well as satify the taste buds.
 
Cyanoacrylate Glue- also known as Krazy Glue or Super Glue. Not as common as white glue, but still very common in the kingdom of glues. It is much stronger than white glue and can sometimes dry in less than 5 seconds. Relatively inexpensive. Used mostly for models and practical jokes.
 
Tip: when looking for Cyanoacrylate glue, instead of buying a tube for 3 dollars, go to the dollar store and buy the pack of fake nails that comes with the Cyanoacrylate glue. More bang for your buck.
 
Urea-Formladehyde Glue-  the smelliest of all the glues, urea-formaldehyde glue is primarily made from urea ( the main component of ......urine ) and formaldehyde ( a substance used quite often for preserving corpses ). Despite its foul-ness, it gets the job done.
 
Tip: Urea-Formaldehyde glue is gross
