I love it when all you have to do is copy one number from an article, and the submitter still gets it wrong.
 
2005-01-07 03:37:25 AM  
Great...Now with the added sensitivity, I'll only last 4 hours.
 
2005-01-07 03:47:40 AM  
Finally, one that fits me!

What? Thick? Not long?

Crap.

I think Mainichi is probably the only news source that could get away with using a word like 'weinerhosen'.
 
2005-01-07 03:56:52 AM  
Condom? If there is no chance of getting her pregnant... what's the point if farking her?
 
2005-01-07 03:58:44 AM  
I smell a rat.
A country with a minus rate population growth invents this?

Can you say "shotgun wedding"?

weinerhosen

Best word ever. Shockingly it's not in the dictionary.com
 
2005-01-07 09:33:34 AM  
That's nearly as thick as my cock. But not quite.

Zipster: I love it when all you have to do is copy one number from an article, and the submitter still gets it wrong.

In the submitter's defense, at the beginning it says 0.03mm and towards the end it says 0.3mm. Still, I believe that 0.03mm is probably the correct number.
 
2005-01-07 10:30:46 AM  
0.3mm? What's that in furlongs?

Does anyone else think that Ryann Connell enjoys his job just a little bit too much?
 
2005-01-07 10:58:51 AM  
Yes, but does it come in Honeydew flavor?
 
2005-01-07 11:08:33 AM  
Now it's so thin you can rip it by looking at it wrong.
 
2005-01-07 11:08:35 AM  
Nah, I don't trust it. I'm not staking 18 years of my livlehood on something like that. Test it for a while, get back to me.

I laughed each time one of these cropped up. Good article.

DanB: Yes, but does it come in Honeydew flavo

No, it comes in meatloaf flavor though.
 
2005-01-07 11:10:05 AM  
But can it be filled with air and stretched to 3 feet?
 
2005-01-07 11:10:14 AM  
A condom so thin and effective, you can almost hear your sperm cry out, "You heatless bastard !"

No, it comes in meatloaf flavor though.

Considering the source, I was more concerned it might come in wasabi flavour.

/yikes!

It was developed by a 15-member team. Member.
 
2005-01-07 11:12:13 AM  
Is that length or diameter?
 
2005-01-07 11:12:25 AM  
Sounds like a Planned Parenthood condom...

Yeah, it got a little annoying after a while. Like sitting next to a guy in a bar talking about women/dames/broads/skirts/birds...

Teucer, did I meet you at a bar recently?
 
2005-01-07 11:15:04 AM  
0.3mm = fairly thick, no ?

/didn't rtfa
 
2005-01-07 11:15:12 AM  
The number of puns in this article is just disturbing...

"Ikeda headed the 15-member team"
"having sold more than 2 million skins since it was unsheathed in November 2003"
"development of love gloves"
"Despite being dealt numerous blows through the years"
"He was the first to produce a wham bam dam "

...or spending time on a Fark thread after school gets out.

whatshisname:

1.49129086 10^-07 furlongs

That's one thin condom!
 
2005-01-07 11:19:11 AM  
The question is do they only come in Asian sizes, or do they make ones that fit the rest of the civilized world ;)
 
2005-01-07 11:19:21 AM  
Wow, maybe now I can actually feel something when I use this one...

/necessary, uncomfortable, and shiatty
 
2005-01-07 11:21:24 AM  
I told you the Japanese ones were the best (and you all chose not to listen). What is this world coming to! Oh the humanity!

/procrastinating on an essay rocks!
 
2005-01-07 11:21:26 AM  
I wonder if theseare the state sponsored condoms in China
(1.3 billion people!!!)
 
2005-01-07 11:22:06 AM  
Still, no cure for Cancer?
 
2005-01-07 11:22:53 AM  
Still no cure for AIDS

We are very simple people with very small penis
 
2005-01-07 11:23:13 AM  
Just to tie all these loose threads together, I wouldn't recommend using a super-thin dome if you plan on going to town with either Pammy Anderson or Anna K.
 
2005-01-07 11:23:27 AM  
Awesome! FINALLY there's a condom my size!

...Oh, you meant 0.03mm thick, not "long"?

forget it...
 
2005-01-07 11:24:47 AM  
I suppose my work as a professional condom tester is done here.
 
2005-01-07 11:25:22 AM  
way too many puns in that article
 
2005-01-07 11:26:45 AM  
Couldn't find a definition for weinerhosen. But found another jewel: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Weinerhouse
 
2005-01-07 11:30:48 AM  
This should have the "Hero" tag
 
2005-01-07 11:30:53 AM  
I invented one made out of thin air. The ladies love it, they say it feels like I'm actually not even wearing one.
 
2005-01-07 11:32:05 AM  
The writer of the article needed to spend more time in math class, and less time making up sexual puns. In addition to his confusion on whether it is 0.3 mm or 0.03 mm, we have this gem:

He was the first to produce a wham bam dam with a thickness of 0.6 mm, which he later surpassed by going a further 0.2 mm thinner.

0.6 - 0.2 = 0.3 ???

They're not puns, they're euphemisms.

2005-01-07 11:35:41 AM  
Like this will get people to use them.
 
2005-01-07 11:37:36 AM  
...and the kittens rejoiced.
 
2005-01-07 11:39:16 AM  
Goddamit, when are they going to invent one 3cm thick - right now it's like waving a stick in a cathedral!
