..the little tiny ones you get given in school have pages thin enough to act as emergency "Rizla's" should the need arise

Alledgedly

How do you get them to stick?

Just curious.

How about Pritt-Stick?

The boys in my school never had a problem getting things to stick, but let's not go there... this is a family show after all! smiley - winkeye

Smells funny though! As do all school glues. (copydex - blergh!) as well as drying out dead quick as soon as it hits the open air.

Was thinking of egg-white. Works when you've steamed an envelope open, apparently!

Damnit, what is a good bible paper glue?

Egg-white sounds good, yeah.

And probably doesn't have any of the side-effects that normal glue might have when ignited and inhaled.

But it's becoming less of an impromptu alternative to Rizla.
"Hey, I've run out of Rizlas!"
"Never fear! I have to hand my Gideon Bible and an egg! Now all I need is an egg-white separator and a very fine brush!"

We need something that you're likely to be able to just have lying around (if you're at home then the egg-white is feasible) or likely to be carrying (if you're out and about, but not in sight of a friendly-neighbourhood Rizla stockist).

If we find an acceptable alternative, who knows, maybe hotels will remove all the Gideon bibles from the Smoking hotel rooms! smiley - smiley

Actually, I don't know anyone who carries prit-stick around either. (PVA maybe!!) smiley - winkeye

Wonder if you licked/sucked a boiled sweet and ran it along the edge, it would stick? Presumably smoking sugar wouldn't do you any harm. (Caramel lung isn't a complaint I've heard of.)

I think that should be OK, though we might need to find out if there are any toxic compounds released by burning sugar.

Well, my research has come up with someone who has applied the appropriate techniques in the field! Let's see what we can learn from the man: (URL removed by moderator)

In the meantime, how about this: If you've got a useless foreign stamp leftover from a holiday, you could tear it up into small shreds, fold it up (so it's double-sided), lick it and apply to the Gideon paper.

Or: Peel the label off a small fizzy drink bottle. Roll up a small amount of the adhesive from the bottle, and place on the Gideon paper.

Or there's that glue they stick free gifts to the front of magazines with. Mind you it's scarily sticky sometimes. And possibly not good for you when smoked.

Some girls might feasibly have the glue you use to stick flase eye-lashes...etc on with. That can't be too toxic or you couldn't put it near your eye.

Or just something slightly tacky like lip-salve might work in a pinch. (Not 100% sure what they put in those, actually.) I shall continue to ponder this tricky scriptural problem. smiley - winkeye

Shame the man who smoked his bible didn't en-lighten us.

Q, that's a really good idea! Provided the binding glue is the type that stays sticky, then I guess that would work!

B&CG, the false eye-lash glue may not be toxic normally, but then you don't normally burn it and inhale the fumes! Not unless that should read "flame eye-lashes". smiley - winkeye

Would depend on how clumsy you are with your lighter. ( And frankly, if you've reached a condition where you're planning to smoke your way through St Paul, you're probably slightly unsteady!) I would hope the producers of said gum would take this into account! smiley - smiley

St Paul? Hmm... you may have a point.

I was just wondering which books would be suitable for different types of cigarettes.

"Revelations" seems clear-cut as an absolute must for dodgy substances (and kids, if you're watching, don't do this at home. This thread is for "informational purposes only").

Any page with parable on would do. As Eddie Izzard pointed out, 'smoke this- you'll understand.'

But the thin page little Gideon bibles only have the New Testament in them, so Genesis would have to be your book of choice in a hotel.

Still, gives a whole new slant on "Let there be light!".

I'm quite sure it wasn't "Have you got a light?". smiley - winkeye
