8 Ways A Condom Can Save Your Life
[Partner Content] 24 APR 2014

Condoms have been included in survival kits for quite some time already. They have been used primarily as an expendable water container but this guide will show you a few more uses that you may not have thought of.

Here are our 8 survival tips that make use of an ordinary condom:

  1. Condoms can be used to hold up to 2L of water if done correctly. If you fill the condom while in one of your socks this handy container will become more durable.
  2. You can use your condom to store dry fire tinder. This can be extremely handy especially when it comes to situations when you’ll need a fire to stay warm, boil drinking water or to cook a meal. And once your tinder is all burnt up, your condom can also be used as a fire starter.
  3. Weaponry. Yes that’s right. You can use condoms to make your very own hand-held slingshot which you can use to hunt down your dinner
  4. In worst case scenarios you can use a condom as a makeshift rubber glove when seeing to first aid issues. It will help in protecting yourself, your wound and other people who may come in contact with blood.
  5. Protection. Condoms are great to use when protecting the muzzle of your hunting guns and rifles from sand water and mud. It may be a crude method but it is simple and effective.
  6. Tying a knot in a condom with air trapped inside can double as a fishing bobber. It will help you see exactly where your fishing line is while you wait for your next catch.
  7. Being alone in the wilderness can get a bit frustrating. Believe it or not but a condom can actually double as a best friend. Simply draw a face on a blown up condom, give him a creative name and he will keep you company while you’re hunting, hungry, alone and sleeping.
  8. If you blow a condom and tie it up, you can turn it into an improvised pillow. Simply wrap it up in a shirt or a jersey to protect it from popping and your night’s sleep will improve slightly.

Hopefully this guide shows you that a condom has far more uses than what is was made for. For more tips on how condoms can change your life check out the articles on http://www.durex.co.za.

Gundam Loving General Nonsense 19 FEB 2008

Otakus have garnered a pretty bad reputation amongst more ‘normal’ members of society, being dismissed as overly obsessive, anime-worshipping, complete Japanophiles and generally being unable to act normally in society without shouting some weird and cutesy Japanese word every 10 minutes. It also stands to reason that these usually fairly geeky people also don’t have the greatest of social skills and in saying that, implying that these boys don’t get to see all that much ‘action’.

However, if that is the case, then I am completely and utterly baffled by this: the Gundam-branded line of condoms.

I wonder if these ever see the light of day or if they remain packaged, tucked away in the recesses of an Otaku’s Shonen Jump mag for the remainder of their lifespan? O.o

Eish… Jokes & other Funny Stuff 23 AUG 2007

Because I’m in the mood for posting jokes, I thought I sneak this one in. Note, the nationalities of the men involved is pure coincidence. Van der Merwe, a blonde or an Irishman would have sufficed. Though hearing an Irishman saying “seriaaasss” just wouldn’t sound right :_)

A Zulu man, a Sotho man and a Venda man were all talking about their teenage daughters.

The Venda says, “A waz loooking for samethink in my daughta’s room the ada day and found a packet of cigarettes. I was really shocked, no! I didant even know she smoked…

The Sotho man says, “That’s naathing. I was loooking for somethink in my daughta’s room the ada day when I came across a full bottal of Vodka. I was really shocked, yes. I didant even know she drank…houw”

Then the Zulu man speaks up. “Both of you guys’ve got nathing to worry about. I was loooking for samethink in my daughta’s room The ada day and I found a packet of condoms.


“I was really shock ed, ne… I didant even know she had the penas.”
