In 1993, a man in Brazil tried to sniff some glue in a factory but accidentally knocked over two large cans and spilled the contents. Thirty-six hours later, police found him glued to the floor, unable to move.
Edilber Guimaraes, 19, was arrested in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, for attempted theft at a glue factory. He had stopped to sniff some of the glue he was stealing but accidentally knocked over two large cans of the stuff. When police arrived at the factory 36 hours later, according to an Associated Press report in the San Francisco Examiner, they found Guimaraes sitting immobile, glued to the floor.
