using them is big and clever.

This video is fascinating. I particularly like the condom washing machines.

How do you think the interview goes for the job of "Condom Washing Assistant 1"? Do you think the condom testing guy knows how to party, or what??

I'm not even going to ask how you happened to come across such an enlightening video...good on ya...

That's so funny, I totally asked myself the same questions. Can you imagine telling someone on a date that you wash everybody's condoms?

I can't remember where I found the vid-- some feminist lady blog. Though reading a book last year really got me interested in this kind of stuff (beyond those childhood trips to 'the mill' that make me love a good factory tour). The book "Devices and Desires" --a history of reproduction prevention technologies in the US-- is a fun, easy read that will make you appreciate the fact that somebody somewhere spends their day blowing up condoms.
