Why superglue sticks?

Back in my younger days at school, our teacher likes to give us a home work. The famous assignment that I remember is for us to make a card for Valentine's day so we can give it to our parents. To make that of course we need scissors, pencils, art paper and glue. Back then every penny is important to us. We have to be very thrifty. Instead of buying a glue I used the leftover rice boiled it until it's soft and very sticky. Believe it or not it really works but you have to wait half an hour to make it dry then it will really sticks. But these days when you compared rice paste to superglue the latter works like a miracle. Modern glue stick so well. Most glues are wholly synthetic. They dry quickly and form very strong bonds. The fastest acting ones are what they called super glues and instant glues which set in seconds. Amazing!
