Sniffing glue refer4s to model airplane glue, whose active ingredient is acetone. It was, for a short time in the early seventies fashionable for high-school kids to sniff the fumes to get high. Therefore the reference to killed brain cells, and damaged mental capacity.

It depends on if you're talking about plastic, or wood model glue.

I'm sure you're right, come to think of it. Acetone is the active ingredient in nail polish remover. Airplane glue is celluloid dissolved in toluene, as you said.

Glue I guess use to get people high when they couldn't afford a dime bag.

Best Answer

fumes from glue not the actual putting glue in your nose. Fumes from glue cut down on oxygen in the body. This gives what feels like a high to people. It kills off brain cells because of the lack of oxygen. Anyhow if someone is saying it to you it means they are curious if you have done something to kill off brain cells meaning they think you have less than average (guess that's the nice way to say it).
