Tip from a Husband -Alternative uses for Condoms ??

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Carrying water.Apparently the average condom will carry 2 galls of water but needs to be supported in a bag.

Soldiers have been known to put condoms over the ends of gun barrels to keep them clean & dry.

Can anyone come up with more examples of lateral thinking...not only condoms !!

You can use them to individually freeze Oscar Meyer delicacies.

They work great for temporarily resealing bottles of Bud.

As a small dog muzzle, they are marginal at best.

They work fairly well as a temporary slingshot band replacement (a "D" cup bra starp woks better).

A good substitute for your teenage son's birthday balloons.

With a littlr helium, a good "wether" balloon for judging wind drift at 300 yards with your AK47

Thanks bobbobobobob, you caused me to ROTFLMAO. I needed that.

They make good shower caps

Gotta disagree with the cap for a bottle of Bud idea...

unless you like a head on your beer.

Has anybody thought of using them for what they were made for? With lots of free time on your hands during Y2K, plus the entertainment part is free, it is just about the only thing you can do during 2000, that can be done in the dark! A couple or three times a day would be something to look forward to! Maybe Y2K won't be to bad after all! Hey, I'm beginning to look forward to it! Better stock up on them balloons!

Use 'em when you run out of TP. Makes it easier if they're lubed.

I don't think I would mind carrying water in one, as long as no one saw me drinking out of it!

BTW Chris, you're right, only the married guys would be thinking of the ALTERNATIVE uses for condoms...

I was going to dedicate this post to Arlin but thought he ought to be allowed to enjoy the magic for a while.

I now use only plastic bags at the grocers,save em'(the build up fast) for use as "toilets"should tshtf...as it were.peace.

I hear condoms are good for smuggling cocaine, and what have you, through airports.that's probabayl o.t. but I guess it could be part of a program to raise funds for y2k prep.LOL!

-- zoobie (zoobiezoob@yahoo.com), June 05, 1999.

ariZONEa, and Chris,

I'm not married, and I've been using condoms for some of these "alternative uses" for years. Until latex gloves and finger sheathes became cheap and easy to get, I used condoms on my gun barrels to keep the rain out for years.

Sometimes the jokes got a little rough, but...
