Hello, I hope this isn't too lame of a question, but one of the inlays (3rd fret) has fallen out of place on my Spoiler. I could stick any old glue in there and it'd probably be fine but I just wanted to get some expert advice. I don't want to take any chances! Thanks,

Forgive my Ignorance. I've not seen crazy glue at all here in the UK. But over the years I've heard it used for so many things. Even Gil Scott Heron mentions it in his song B -Movie.I
it must be some amazing potion.

Crazy Glue is a brand name it is also known as Super Glue. Chemically/generically it is called Cyanoacrylate Glue. It usually comes in a small tube and is a very thin liquid. It will glue just about anything together including your fingers.

And it will also stick fingers to eyelids resulting in a trip to A&E ;-(

Crazy Glue can eventually come un-stuck from exposure to moisture over a period of time. I can attest that it works wonderfully in the desert, but it might not be as long lived here in this rather constant high humidity! I think that is why you might not see it over here very often.

I've found that it doesn't work well on non-porous surfaces.

I think what made Crazy/Super glue so well known were the television commercials. They often showed a man hanging from a hard hat that had been glued to a steel beam. I also remember them doing the same thing with a car suspended from two glued steel blocks.

I've found that CA glues (cyanoacrylate) are really strong for bonds that have a lot of tight-fitting surface area (like broken plastic if there's no deformation) and that they're kind of fragile bonds if there's any gaps at all (which include porous surfaces like wood). Things are tight until there's another impact and the bond fails all at once. CA glues aren't themselves heat sensitive, but if the things that they're gluing expand differently, you'll fracture the bond again really quickly.
I think CA glue is pretty common for inlay work these days because it cures quickly (so you can work fast) and it dries clear and easy to sand.
There are different types of CA glue including thicker compositions that will fill gaps. That would probably be more appropriate for an oval inlay where you dont' have to bond it all the way up to the fingerboard.

superglue also works in a pinch for cuts (think battlefield remedy). It was invented for this purpose (well, that's what I heard, apocryphally).

Superglue is my first choice for cuts, and it helps to wash it out with hydrogen peroxide or alcohol first to reduce infection. I have used it on slices on both left and right fingertips acquired while setting up the PA before gigs and it enabled me to play with no problems. It is actually marketed for this purpose as "Liquid Bandaid" or something, but it's more expensive with those words on the label.
It also works well at preventing/delaying blisters on your hands. I figured this out at a 2-day combat handgun class where we fired upwards of a thousand rounds and the checkering on my grip was wearing raw spots on my fingers.
Is this thread oficially hijacked, or is this a natural evolution? :-)

All this talk of evolution is just monkey business.

I think it's been intelligently designed away from its purpose.
