    Adhesive, not glue, is the correct term (right Scott). Glue is a subset of adhesives and only works on a limited number of materials and material combinations effectively. Just one of my pet peeves (like the correct usage of concrete and cement).

    Other than not being as strong as concrete, and not being able to be kept non-solid by being rolled around in “concrete-trucks” or something, what are the differences between the two?

    It’s funny, a high school friend of mine, Leslie Peer, did his Ph.D. thesis on concrete; specifically ways of making stronger concrete.
