Feds Fund Validation of Penis-
Measuring Tool For Custom-Fit Condoms

Cybercast News Service, by Eric Scheiner

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 1/10/2014 12:50:39 PM

The federal government is spending $224,863 to test custom-fitted condoms and validate a self-reporting penis measurement system for commercial use. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded the grant with funding through July of 2014 to TheyFit, LLC of Covington, Georgia for the project: “Behavioral and Manufacturing Science to Commercially Develop Fitted Condoms.” (snip) The condoms are currently unavailable in the U.S. but the FAQ section of their website claims, “Condoms are regulated medical devices and must conform to international standards documents such as ISO: 4074. Standards specify what a company must do to test each condom to ensure that

Comments:
I learn something new every day! I didn´t know that condoms are regulated medical devices?

Interesting that the US is paying for research for a product that isn´t available in the US.

This is going to be one wild thread...

If ever there was a topic that gives the federal government the potential for lying, and the consumer too. Size "small" will remain on the shelves forever.

There is a story dating back to WWII: We were supplying the Russians with many products. The Russians ordered ´condoms, 10-inch.´ The U.S. supplied the condoms, but had them all stamped ´small.´

Good grief! We´re now going to get more fake Obama data. Bad enough that Obama ´s BLS lies about the unemployment rate falling to 6.7% as 525,000 people drop out of work force. Now we´ll get HHS monthly release claiming that due to ObamaCare, average US condom size increases to 6.7" to give us yet another false sense of achievement.

Ive been thinking long and hard over this issue but still cant get a grip on the tip of its meaning. A thought did swell up to the size of a balloon as I lubricated my mind with drink only to slide in and out from a daydream to reality, but in the end nothing leaked out.

I fear I have come up blank and really had no reason to write the comment above.

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall. Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

World Vision had announced last month that its American branch would begin hiring people in same-sex unions who dedicate their lives to God. Just two days later, the group reversed the decision under pressure from evangelical leaders. “The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and

On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
