Well, I don't know if this article really fits the title of this thread, but it IS both stupid and at the same time, singularly gross and .......I just find myself at a loss for descriptive words:

Gross.  And to think I am very pro-recycling.  But that has limits.

Yep, gross as hell! It's funny, I had just read that story right before I came here. I did the math, ~$61 for the processing of 345,000 used condoms.  :o

I don't believe it, not for one second.

This reminds me of that old joke: 'How do you re-use a condom? Grab it by the tip and shake the ($## out of it.'

I tried to reuse one once, I left it on and after a little post coitus cuddling it rose up begging to be used again. It didn't survive
the second encounter intact and we had a nervous couple of weeks waiting for the flow.

TMI? Sorry, just trying to stay on topic.  :-[

To be honest, I do believe it. When one realizes that 70% of the world population doesn't use toilet paper, boiled rubber's being reused just doesn't seem that far out.

Question is, how many red light houses was this woman collecting from to get that many used ones?

And what a great way to answer the age- old question- What do you do for a living?

1) I collect used condoms and sort them by color and size.
2) I work in QC of a condom recycling plant (I leave the specifics of the exact job to your imagination).
3) I am in charge of collecting used condoms at the local pharmacy.
4) I keep track of condom recycling so that we never recycle any particular one more than 17 times.
5) I work in a brothel and every other week, I am in charge of recycling the condoms. On odd weeks, I get the better job of cleaning the toilets.
6) Now that we are recycling condoms, I am in charge of 'retrieving' any 'lost' condoms'.

..... I am not out of ideas but they are starting to lose their dignity from here.

To be honest, I do believe it. When one realizes that 70% of the world population doesn't use toilet paper, boiled rubber's being reused just doesn't seem that far out.

Covid isolation is removing our mental filters while increasing our oral/nasal filters, but then my mental filters were always a little too perforated.

..and speaking of porous filters and handling used condoms...etc....any of you have the job of cleaning up a drive in movie theater at three in the morning?
Dragging that stick pole and bag scented with filled diapers, jizzum, and popcorn around 10 acres of hilly land was no picnic. Life really sucks when you're poor and
have to take work where you can get it, and go to school. Yet I was one of the lucky ones...could have been luckier however.

(for Brian) At least I didn't get pregnant, and neither did she, until several years later after I married her. Then 6 months later I was snipped and no more condoms, new or used.  :banana :banana :banana

Back during the "cold war" Russia tried a bit of psychological warfare.  They contacted Trojan here in the U.S. and ordered 2 million condoms, 14 inches long and 4 inches in diameter. 

Trojan made the product and shipped them in boxes labeled "Size: MEDIUM"   ;D

Well that link didn't work for me, perhaps too much information isn't as bad as, bad information?   ;D

I tried to determine what it was you were trying to show us Ted, I came up with this: https://youtu.be/vQHvoxXIo4Q

How'd I do?

They need to install an electronic measuring thingy farther away.  That bridge is infamous for shearing off the tops of trucks.
