I was about to leave work and the customer asked me to glue something. I only had superglue on me, so I used that. I used a tad more than I should have, so I used the old trick of licking my linger to stop the overflow running down, then I noticed a second drip, and licked the same finger again. I now have super glue on my tongue and the back of my (upper) teeth.

I am "special"...

Doesn't last that long on the human body. I used to super glue my front tooth crown in while waiting for a dental appointment - would fall out after a week or so. Same when they glue cuts together.

Having had a crown fall out, I mentioned considering superglue to the dentist, who was horrified. Apparently it can damage the crown and make it unusable. (Probably trying to work out how to charge me more).

When I had a crown fitted I asked my dentist how it was held in place and he said, "Glue". He went on say that his colleagues would call it 'dental cement' but it is glue.

I have done this for MANY years, deep cuts from stanley blades, I run for the superglue, hold the cut closed and wipe over with my finger. By the time the glue has worn off, It's healed nicely. (Then loctite remover to get the glue off my finger)
If you keep getting deep cuts maybe it's a warning you are doing something wrong.
