I love news stories like this:

Antarctic base gets condom haul before winter

There are about 125 staff left on Antartica for the winter and 16,500 condoms have been delivered.

As the article mentioned: they "would be made available, free of charge, to staff throughout the year to avoid the potential embarrassment of having to buy them."

So...that's about 132 condoms per person.

The winter lasts about 3-4 months.

I think that comes out to 1.1 condom per person per day?!? (someone please check my math)

No wonder the ice caps are melting...there seems to be a whole lot a lovin' going on down there!

There's not a lot else to do down there.
Wake up.
Look at snow.
Look at penguins.
Have sex.
It's going to be a long winter.

I was just about to say there wasn't much else to do to pass the time, but Dive ahs beat me to it.

Well, they could always use them for a condom fight. Fill them with water and go at it....

dive said...

That would hurt! You fill a condom with water in Antarctica and by the time you hit someone with it it's solid ice! Ow!

I know it isn't friday, but...

"If I live til ninety-seven/you'll still be waiting in refrigerator heaven/cos you're cool, you're ice/Cold Ethyl, you're my paradise!" (ok ok. I KNOW Alice Cooper was a boy band. But some of the songs were campy fun. And anyway, when I was a girl in pinafore and ringlets, ALL the bands were boy bands. It was a weird and terrible environment.)

Confidential to Dive: there are no more Penguins to look at. My Red Wings beat them, yayyyy!
