    Well, you could cut off your hand and attach a new one (and if you can find soemone selling hands, I'd be interested to know who!), or you could soak your hand in nail polish remover (I believe the acetone in the polish remover will dissolve the stuporglue). Either way you'll have to re-paint your nails afterward.

    So the hand you acquired was superglued the same way too? Didn't the paint thinner hurt the parts that were exposed when you cut your hand off? *cackle*

    *cough* sorry. Depending on how much glue you've used, you might be able to "rock" your fingers back and forth, sort of like rolling up a straw wrapper between your fingers to make a spitball. I've glued my fingers together before with stuporglue (yes kids, dares really can be stupid) but I managed to rock my fingers back and forth enough that the glue finally gave without tearing my skin. If you've ever done this with elmer's glue and then pulled it off, you'll notice how "clean" your fingers/hands were afterwards. This'll be kind of the same thing, except the skin on your fingers might be a bit sore afterwards, and you'll have lots of little pieces of residue that will remain for a while until your skin regenerates itself (or you go at it with your fingernails and make the skin even more irritated).

    On the other hand (yes, that's your right hand, the one you haven't glued to anything yet...) be careful. If you've glued your fingers especially well, trying this may cause more problems (tearing skin, the plague, etc.). If you even think you feel that icky feeling when your skin is cut, stop immediately and consult a doctor!

    Ever thought of, I don't know...
    THE FREAKIN HOSPITAL!

    Barring that it might be possible (disclaimer alert) to use a very sharp knife to carefully cut the bonding between the fingers. Just becareful not to use too much pressure otherwise you might slip and cut your finger and then you'll have to go to the hospital for that and the superglue.

    I dont suggest you try to cut the glue between the fingers.

    There is probably very little between that you can cut, and to do it yourself would be a different story.

    As I suggested at FD, I think the Emergency room would be the best solution. Dont worry you wont look like such an idiot

    Might I suggest that next time you decide to glue your hand shut you use less glue, or perhaps use elmers glue? Or better yet, heed the label on the stuporglue and "avoid contact with skin"...

    Now if you reeeeely want to be in a bind (pun intended), I've seen JB Weld (an epoxy) hold the front shock of a car in place (the mounting pin/screw/whatever broke) over more than 500 miles of driving over just about every possible terrain (from flying down I-95 from DC to li'l backwater dirt-roads with dips you could hide a body in). I'm sure with JB Weld you could make "Lefty" a really appropriate nickname for yourself...

    Now that we've invested so much of our lives into this situation, mind telling us all why you decided to glue your hand into a fist?

    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    If acetone hasn't worked, you need to phone the super-glue company, they will tell you to go to hospital and presumeably be able to tell the doctors what to use to dissolve the glue.

    Fire will weaken the bond if gas doesn't work.

    PROTIP: Use acetone you dope.
