For several years I have used Elmer's Craft Bond (a better quality white glue) and been ecstatically happy with it (OK, maybe pleasantly pleased). So when I needed to buy new, I saw Elmer's Quick-Drying Craft Bond glue. Wel,,, I've used Aleene's Qyick drying Tacky glue and liked it, so . . . . This was the worst glue I have ever tried. While I like the quick dry feature, the glue has a problem I find very annoying: it doesn't actually glue. Warm spit would work better. So, I'll be making another trip to WalMart to buy my old stand by after I try to pawn the white tripe off on my grandkids. Note to self: when trying a new product, only by ONE. Sigh.
Wow. The only Elmer's product I've used in quite a while is their Carpenter's wood glue. It seems to work as intended, so that one I'll stick with.
For papercrafts, I use Scotch's Paper Adhesive or Quick-Dry Tacky glue. The only real difference between them I can see is that one has purple on the bottle, the other is tan. I *think* the tacky version dries a little faster, though I'd need to use a stop watch to tell for sure. Both set up *extremely* fast.
I wish they were a little less expensive, but they're priced competitively with other brands.
I've always been partial to Aleene's Tacky Glue, but I also like to use Elmer's School Glue that I picked up at a dollar store. The School Glue is much thinner, so it can be painted thin in larger areas. And when I start working I'll squirt out a small glob of glue to set up. If you let it set up for a minute or two, it becomes as thick as Tacky Glue.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?

I use different glues for different applications. Aleene's Tacky Glue is an excellent product and works quite well, and it comes in clear now, very cool. I don't use Elmer's at all - they don't make it like they used to -nuf said. Instead I use Titebond II, it is a thick wood glue with lots of strength. You can thin with water if needed, or just let a little sit out for a bit for a really thick and tacky glue that grabs immediately and holds tight. Besides, it's only a couple of bucks per 16 oz (473 mL) bottle. Not bad for something so versatile. It's only drawback is that it dries yellow, so wipe up any drips quickly!

Vermin King: I still don't think I have it, but been doing run around trying to get in to see someone, somewhere about getting tested. If not The Virus, I still need to figure out what this is and get it knocked out

Vermin King: I wish I hadn't been curious. Hadn't taken my temperature for a few days, and I'm running a slight fever again. I'm so ticked off. I guess tomorrow I will have to do the nurse hotline. Sun on the Beach...

Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt

Vermin King: I see that Stay-at-Home is only about 45% effective in the US. That is 45% of folks with cell phones are staying put. Big Brother is tracking cell phone GPS. And why not?

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.
