Potamanda Unglamorous American Invention


Glue often doesn’t like me very much, which is why my friend Richard, when he gave me a beautiful cutting board he made, a solid Oriental maple, shot with the purple padauk of Africa – I thought it was a tree. must grow in the most complex ways I have ever seen. Only after hearing him and his fellow woodworkers talk about “glue-ups” did I realize that dangerous adhesives were incorporated into the woodwork, and the wonders of the object are greatly reduced when we call Elmer’s best-used name.

Wood glue has become a global phenomenon — once again remarkably interesting. There are names attached to adhesives in adhesives: Mildred Bonney and Langdon T. Williams, a family that founded the Franklin International adhesive company in 1935 in Columbus, Ohio, which released its premium product, Titebond, in 1955. Titebond and polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue. It swells up the fibers of wood, thus connecting them; When the thread is dry, the yarn is thin, but now it is too tight to break.

Although luthiers still use animal glue when building rope-equipment, yes, the type made from animal skins — many woodworkers have switched to PVA, especially Titebond, especially (projects required) Titebond III, which promotes interest. on the entire woodworking internet, because it pays for itself as waterless, despite the fact that some experts are skeptical. It also has a great “open time”, which means it is sticky and does not dry out even if you are fixing your boards for 10 minutes. Titebond II gives you only five.

But the real success with all Titebonds is, of course, a bond. How do cleavage, compression, twisting, hitting, arguing, or shearing hair needed to break a Titebond strap? This weighs in pounds per inch, and Titebond III takes up to 4,000 lbs to break. Two tons of danger. Solid wood will break before the glue.

From glue to eyebrows. And while old-fashioned false eyebrows require glue, they are much smaller than Titebond – and it is enough to think of very sticky eyelashes. New to the eyebrows is a synthetic prostaglandin analog called bimatoprost. (Prologues made of prostaglandin are also effective in misoprostol, one of the most approved abortifacient pills.) . In fact, ophthalmologic researchers were trying to reduce eye strain in glaucoma patients, and they found that bimatoprost stimulates ciliary – a stress-relieving muscle that works regularly when we read on our phones – resulting in the release of fluid inside the eye . eye. They were surprised to find that this fluid flow like plasma also worked as a Miracle-Gro for eyebrows.

While the development of the technology of hair extensions seems to be very appealing to the public, this was exciting. “Hypotrichosis,” or what the National Institutes of Health calls “eyebrow multiplication,” is a bimatoprost disorder, which can be seen in people with alopecia, but it certainly has a number of side effects. Interestingly, bimatoprost can cause hypertrichosis – the growth of eyebrows, producing a green patch on the surface of the eye that hinders the need for a thick mascara dye. “This hair,” says the NIH study, “was extremely strong, long, and long-lasting, and it was more dense than the cornea eye.” The only catch? Hypertrichosis caused by bimatoprost sometimes comes with a “unstable curvature”. OH HELL NO.
