Sticky Situation

Something odd here (other than the obvious). Seems like the super glue would be dry before someone came along and sat on it? ???

I recall this sort of incident made the headlines a year or more ago in April of 2011 as well with a man winding up super glued to a toilet seat at walmart.

This initially puzzled me too given the speed with which super glue dries although on further consideration I would guess it's because the individual used beads of the glue rather then a thin film. With a bead of glue the outer surface would dry rapidly, but the inner surface being unexposed to air would likely remain unset for a time? (until sat upon at least. :P )

I'm sitting here looking at a bottle of super glue.  It is a gel and not the runny stuff we are used to using.  Being a gel would probably enable it to be spread thicker and would therefore remain viscous on the inside longer.  Just a thought.   ???
