You'd better stock up, because condoms will probably be illegal in Florida before long.
/Whar Florida tag?
 
2022-09-29 8:01:07 AM  
it looks like she put a condom on a fleshlight
 
2022-09-29 8:21:27 AM  
There are people who didn't immediately realize it was to keep the mic dry?
 
2022-09-29 8:23:06 AM  
At least she wiped the lube off before speaking into it.

At least we all learned that not only do condoms keep sperm in, but it keeps your dick dry in a hurricane.

It's an old military trick to keep your weapon dry.

Unlubricated condoms are used in sound equipment, particularly with mic packs for live performances or broadcasts.
They had them on had already and it was the best thing to use.
Live stuff goes awry quickly and you roll with it and improvise.

Mystery Condom, the exciting new game from Milton Bradley!

You would think unribbed, unlubricated clear condoms without a reservoir tip would be standard equipment in a news crew's van, especially in places that get a lot of rain.

Microphone goes whar?

I mean, look at last few election cycles. There is a significant portion of the US that are not clever people.

Wouldn't the condom dampen the sound?

Microphones are $30, but getting a condom on TV is priceless.

TheGreatGazoo: Wouldn't the condom dampen the sound?


So would a lot of wind and rain.  But at least this wouldnt damage the microphone.
 
2022-09-29 8:48:04 AM  
A condom? On network tv for all the precious children to see?? In Florida???
Time for some re-education there, young lady.
 
2022-09-29 8:49:39 AM  
Did she put it on with her mouth?

You've never done field work with electrical equipment, have you?  It's not the cost that's the problem, it's the loss of capabilities.

I carry a ridiculous amount of spare cables, laptop batteries, etc in my work van.  The problem isn't that a $5 cable failed, the problem is I spent an hour driving to a job, getting set up and now I can't do it because of a $5 cable.
 
2022-09-29 9:24:52 AM  
Yeah, you do not need a reservoir top on a mike.

A machine gun, however....
 
2022-09-29 9:27:58 AM  
But why is it vibrating?

There are people who don't realize soldiers put them on their rifles during D-Day, and instead go, "TEEHEE, ADULT THING.  TEEHEE."

It is, intentionally, a thin membrane. Pull a condom over the head protruding from your neck and walk down the street. You'll hear every single laugh and/or gasp from people you pass.

These are not the condom brand you choose when you decide to fark an unbalanced woman with whom you wish to share no co-parenting responsibilities.

It's been a long week in Florida, her only two choices left were the reservoir tip or the Magnum black one that's ribbed for her pleasure. I think, in this situation, she made the right call.

if it was a 635A - she could also use it to hammer nails, crush the skulls of any attacking alligators, and it would still work to conduct an interview

/damn microphones are indestructible

Yes, using rubbers to protect mics is an old and standard practice but typically it's the non-reservoir tipped ones and non-lubricated... those might be more difficult to procure these days.

Also own an Electrovoice ERV-635A.   An industry standard before the RE model, I used the same one for 30 years. So sturdy and rugged, my grandchildren will be using it when I'm gone.

To be fair we don't take education seriously in the United States of Awful(tm) .  And also we don't encourage critical thinking.  And we push blind unquestioning belief in religion.

TheGreatGazoo: Wouldn't the condom dampen the sound?


Yes, and it seemed to do so in video of the original report. It all depends, though, on the distance between the microphone and her mouth, as well as the sensitivity of the microphone diaphragm.
