This day is a sad day.

Harry Coover, Super Glue inventor, dies at 94 CNN) -- Harry Wesley Coover, best-known as the inventor of Super Glue, has died at his home in Kingsport, Tennessee, a funeral home there said Sunday.
He was 94.
The cause of death was congestive heart failure.
Coover got the idea for Super Glue during a lab accident while working for Eastman Kodak, said Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Homes.
He was studying compounds for use in optically perfect gun sights and impact-resistant jet canopies when an assistant complained that new refractometer prisms were wrecked because they got glued together, according to the funeral home.
In fact, cyanoacrylate -- the chemical name for the glue -- was rejected by researchers at first because it bound everything together.
But Coover saw its potential.
The glue was first sold as a commercial product in 1958, according to the Super Glue Corp.'s website.
It has since become synonymous with curiously powerful adhesives. Coover was awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation last year for his work.
He is survived by two sons, a daughter and four grandchildren.

You might think i'm not serious with this post, but I use super glue all the fucking time, its the single greatest pattern making tool i use. He will be missed, but his invention will live on forever.

I met 2 guys who I have become good friends with: Ryan and Ben. they were both working for the Detroit Brothers at the time.
I also have a great story about a group of us racing from Sturgis to Spearfish at high speed and all of a sudden having a cloud come from the bike Ben was riding, a certian bike that had been on tv...
oops, oh well, shit happens.

I don't know what to say about the devastation in Japan. I know that many people I consider close friends are safe and ok, and thats great but so many people I don't know have been suffering or have lost their lives.

My thoughts go out to everyone in Japan. I cherish all my friends there and have had some of the greatest times of my life in Japan.
Hang in there.
