Safe and Sound! ;)

So, Ms Silverlines has written down a very thoughtful post about us having to be responsible by carrying condoms everywhere, in case we happen to meet and greet a muy caliente stranger, and we just can't resist our hormonal urge.

I wholeheartedly agree with it. I even give more nods to her suggestion that condoms are really multifunctional, not only to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS , but for other purposes as well, such as a PORTABLE WATER BUCKET. Like she said, there is always possibility that one day you are stranded in a deserted island and you need something to contain the water.

Well.

To be honest, Dear, unless you are indeed in a no-man island and somehow decide to have a picnic there, and there's no bottle or thermos to bring the water, and of course no coconut shells on the sand, the latex thingy will be very useful.

Don't get me wrong, I still think it's a brilliant idea. In fact, I'd like underline that condoms have more to offer than it's originally designed for, most of them are as substitutes to, inter alia:

1. Balloons (of course!). How many times we as kids had blown the 25 condoms? Oh okay, I admit I did. In this case, you can also fill the condom with water and we can play water balloon with it!

2. Ziplocks. To fellow Indonesians who may not be so familiar with this term, it's actually a brand for plastic bags with zips used to put your belongings, food, etc. So if you go to a party or buffet dinner, and you want to bring home some delicious satays or cakes, and the host is out of plastic bags, you only need to pull out your condom! Just make sure that you do it indiscreetly and the condom is NEW.

3. Rubberbands. It's totally hot, and your hair adds the heat to the backside of your neck. Take out the condom, pelintir (I don't know the English word for it, LOL) to make it thin and long, tie it around your hair. Simple!

4. Cellphone cover. I had seen it actually before I came here, hehehehe...

And many, many more. It's not recommended, though, as a replacement for plastic nipples. You don't want your babies to grow up too fast, do you?

But anyway, I don't intend to make a serious issue a joke. The number of people with HIV/AIDS is sharply increasing. We have to accept the fact that sermons alone don't prevent people from having unsafe sex. So rather than dwelling with merely moral issues, we should take practical precautions, including installing condom vending machines if necessary (truthfully, I'm a bit doubtful that Indonesian people will be willing to line up to the machine, in public). On top of that, of course, education, education, education.

Update:
Now I remember, pelintir should be twist!

Just make sure it's a non-flavour one, otherwise your satay might taste like banana or even durian.

during the vietnam war, the pentagon realized they need to waterproof the M16 (prone to water damage, unlike the better rugged build of commies' AK47). however, they're already in the middle of a war and no time to redo the design.

then they start issuing millions of condoms for the troops. it's ideal, it waterproofed the muzzle for patrolling the swamp and at the same time posed no danger to shooting, and cheap to produce.

that's for real.
