Blue Monday

Lets see what's happening today, Monday, October 15, 2007. It rained and it rained and it rained. Yesterday almost 3 inches, today probably close to that. You know what that means? It means I'm not in a good mood golf. I try to play or practice Monday through Friday and let the work a day folks have the weekend. By tomorrow I will need my fix, straight to the vein, unless it's still raining.

What else, Nebraska fired it's AD today. The big guy at the U says it has nothing to do with the loss on Saturday. I say bullshit, big chief speak with forked tongue. Not that it matters to me, they can fire everyone there and cancel the rest of the season as far as I'm concerned. Of course if that happened red would probably be dropped as a primary color, corn would never again be yellow and this fellow would probably move to Oklahoma.

Next, the good Senator from I da Ho was inducted in the the states hall of fame over the weekend. This tells us all we need to know about Idaho I guess. The steers and queers used to be in Texas, guess they moved north. And bush (that's W), he still thinks that we should continue to allow our jobs to be outsourced overseas by declaring that protectionism will cost the US jobs, even though estimates indicate that we lost from 300,000 to 995,000 jobs from 2001 to 2004 (lets see, when did he take office?).

Which one is the president?

And finally, news from the world of condoms, experts from 21 nations are meeting in S. Korea this week (question, what does it take to become a condom expert, what do they do and how much do they make?). They apparently are there to update international condom standards (we can all have alot of fun with this one). Seriously though, they are concerned with the quality of the rubber but enough of that. The big issue (pardon the pun) seems to be size and apparently it does matter. The things are just to long.

According to Michael Reece, director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University "typically, when a man complains about condom fit, we have assumed that he means that condoms are too small and we have often just ignored this complaint because we think that men are bragging about the size of their penis," He said men also have problems with condoms being too large.

Another comment comes from Frank Sadlo, founder of TheyFit. Sadlo offers a "fit kit," a sheet of paper printed from a computer for sizing - and advising the user to watch out for paper cuts. That's the best advice I've heard in a long time. Sadlo is also pushing (again with the puns) for a standards change which could be a problem.

The standard for testing condom strength is to fill it with air (a viable penis substitute no doubt), a technique pioneered by the Swedes (it's in the blood line) in the 1950s. Condoms of the standard length and width must hold at least 4.76 gallons of air - far more than they would ever be expected to contain under normal use. I know the body is mostly water but is the penis most air? If true, that would explain alot wouldn't it.

OMG, the condom thing just kills me. Visions of men everywhere trying to figure out their sizes dance through my head. That's just so wrong. . .
