At least they are using them for something.

I didn't realize this wasn't common knowledge.

I thought guns were for below average guys??

A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men.

Boinger, I thought thats why the government passed them out in the first place.

This is nothing new, since WW2 at least people have used condoms to keep grit out of rifles. But given the AIDS problem in India, perhaps we should start distributing my favorite barrel guard: electrical tape.

it's also good to play with your gun a lot, unloaded, break in the firing pin. That way you'll be sure to hit more innocent people when you do drive-bys.

thanks my survival rate in my crime-ridden county just went down.

That was the cover story. Fact was that we were losing a lot of soldiers to VD since they had nothing to do in the UK, prior to the invasion, except fark the locals. The brass needed some way to get condoms to the troops, but admitting that they were having a massive VD problem was a non-starter. So they came up with the "rifle protection" story.

"The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms."

Hmm, when it comes to condom size, circumference is a whole lot more important... This obsession with length is maddening, especially on the part of condom manufacturers, who should know better..
 
2007-07-01 03:59:22 PM  
How long before circumcision becomes a hot debate in India. And how will the Hindu's and Buddhist deal with it?
Men all over the world have no idea that condoms come in a range of sizes and textures.
Still my favorite...
1984 I am listening to Dr. Ruth on the radio.
She is taking calls.
Guy aged 18 calls in and says.. he has trouble with condoms they are to tight.
Dr. Ruth is telling him there are bigger sizes.
He tells her but I have used the bigger sizes it hurts when I roll it over the base.
So Dr. Ruth says how are you putting on the condom.
Guy says.
I roll it down and over my testicles thats where it is too tight.
Dr. Ruth exclaims in her little accent NO NO NO you do not roll the condom over the testicles..
The guy is all relieved he has been trying to wear the condom over his balls.
Anyway..I have rambled on..I hope it got a little giggle from someone.

Well, they aren't fitting their toothpick dicks, so why not. What I want to know is why Durex sensitive and tingling sensation are the only ones I've found that don't feel like someone's trying to bob my wang.

Folks in India three times out of four use condoms for anything but their intended use, including toys, water containers and dust covers for rifles.

Oh Jesus!

/Wait, get a hold of yourself. I'm sure it's not that bad. Why, I may want to-

When I found out what condoms were in elementary school, I really thought that was the way they were put on. Fortunately, I learned the real way long before I was 18.

in a combat situation, you don't want your canteen sloshing around like a noisemaker. You fill a condaom and put it in a sock and tie it to your belt.
Also it keeps mud and crap out of your barrel.
Used to have a list of stuff they are good for but since I don't need them anymore....

Indians, according National AIDS Control Organization chief Sujatha Rao are reluctant to discuss sex.

image.guardian.co.uk

They can't even show people kissing on screen and when Richard Gerb er Gere macked one of the Bollywood actresses they burned him in effigy so it may be a while before the Indians are nonchalant enough about condoms.

Granted you do not want water sloshing around in a half full canteen but you do NOT put water in a condom. We would put a unrolled plastic dish scrubber in them. cheap and did not make your water taste like a rubber or spermicide. A condom on the barrel though, ya it works great.

Think about it like a car. Keep it in the garage as much as possible but when you take it out, think car cover.

Yep. Another religion knocks itself out of the running for the title of "fundamentally decent." Condoms could probably end more suffering than any other single thing in the world right now, but the old taboos just keep hanging on.

Never heard of the dish scrubber thing.. good idea.


As for keeping a barrel clean, we use finger condoms instead of regular ones because they are small enough to pop just from the barrel evacuation, before the bullet gets to the end of the barrel. That means you can start dropping rounds without getting mean spirals. Its bad enough firing cold without having latex throw rounds off. I was skeptical at first but after a little bit of testing quashed my arguments.

Also, they don't need to be tied on... bonus.

We used to do that with rifles in the Army circa 1986. It works freaking great.

Soldiers in Iraq use condoms all the time to keep dust from pouring down the barrels of their rifles. I would imagine they do the same in Afghanistan. If it had been feasible to put a condom over the end of a 9mmm, I would have done the same thing. Keeping your weapon clean over there is a royal pain in the ass. It really does take self discipline to break that farker down every day and clean it out.

Oh sure. They give them to their kids to carry the water to school, very common. I read about it in the paper a year or so ago.

In theater we use unlubricated condoms to keep wireless microphone packs dry. The manufacturers make special rubber sleeves for them, but they're really expensive, and a condom works just as well.

Although you do get silly looks buying cases of them...
