I was thinking about condoms recently. Dont ask me why, but I started to think about what you can use them for. I know fornication is the first thing that comes to everybody’s mind, but they can be used for other things. It’s true! If you think about what a condom was originally meant to do (keep two fluids separate, looking at it from a scientific standpoint) you realize that it has a lot of applications. Ever been pushed into a pool and thought “man I wish my “insert electronic device” here was waterproof”? Well a condom can be used to keep small things dry. Lets say you have a watch that you’re fond of, but you need to ford a river. If you had a few condoms in your BoB you could wrap up your watch to protect it. really anything smaller than, well you know, can be stored in a condom to keep it dry and actually on second thought condoms have an amazing amount of stretch. I mean check out this video of a kid pulling one over his head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vle-tpbJPs&feature=fvst. You can store small fire arms in them to prevent rust or keep dirt out of the barrel of your rifle/shotgun. Conversely if you need to keep something moist for some reason (I’m drawing a blank right now on something that needs to be kept moist other than cake, and I wouldn’t even go that far, but I suppose that you could do that experiment you do in first grade where you germinate some seeds in a bag except use a condom instead) it can be put into a condom for storage. Condoms can also be used for water collection/storage. Obviously they are not indestructible, or even particularly strong but they allow you to collect a sizable amount of water. Condoms are extremely small and lightweight. They can be easily stored and transported. They are impermeable. I mean really the uses are endless. Laugh if you want but I going to keep a few with me. And finally don’t forget to wrap you tool.
But really, don’t take my work for it. Take his: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vle-tpbJPs&feature=fvst
On a side note I suggest un-lubricated latex condoms, otherwise things could get messy.
