### But Baby, It's Cold Outside...

It's gonna be a long, cold winter... and you gotta do SOMETHING to conserve body heat, I guess...

Note to self: look into this for my next vacation.

Roy:

They talked about their population increasing next year. Isn't that what the condoms are supposed to prevent?

Boyd :

16,500 / 125 = 132 rubbers per person (or 264 per couple, since that's the usual number of people involved in condom usage).

Those are some randy folks down there. But then again, what the hell else are you going to do?

P. Bunyan:

The article said their population swells to 1000 persons after the winter is over, so that would be 330 condoms per couple... for research scientists? They'll prolly end up with more than a few leftovers.

P. Bunyan:

Oops! Messed up my math. It'd be 33 per couple. Still too many.

kbiel :

Boyd, they did say it was a year's supply. So that is 16,500 / 125 / 365 = .36 rubbers per day or about one condom for every 3 days (or .72 condoms per day per couple which is about 1 every 36 hours). Still a bit randy, but it doesn't sound as bad when you enter time into the equation.

Beyond that, there are other uses for condoms. For example, I believe many sound technicians use them to protect their microphones in wet locations/situations.

125 scientists and staff? I hope the ratio of Men to Women is close to 50/50? otherwise some eggheads are going to crack up.

The order form said to make sure staff had adequate rubbers for outside work. ww

I get shrinkage just thinking about it..

Tammy:

Ever stop to think how many pregnancies modern electricity has probably prevented? People are able to stay up and watch the late, late, late show now. Used to be, once it got past dusk and the candle got low or burned out you had to go to bed. Well, I'm not sleepy at 7 p.m. or even 9 p.m. (5 p.m. in the winter). Like someone else said, "What else are you going to do?" I just know that here in the deep south during one winter ice storm, lots of babies were born in my hometown 9 months later. Come to think of it, there were also lots of divorces and paternity suits. Oopsie!
