Recycling taken to an extreme

Chinese condoms into hairbandsI’m all for recycling and composting but this story that I saw when I was away struck me as a little bit yikky.

Apparently in China there is a company recycling used condoms and making them into hair bands.

Doctors have condemned the practice saying there’s a danger of catching a sexually transmitted disease (like AIDS or genital warts), especially by women and girls who hold the band in their mouth while they gather their hair up to tie it.

Which begs the question “How are they actually recycling them?”

Do men simply deliver the condom (used) and whoever accepts it chops the sac (and contents) then gives it a quick rinse, and, hey presto, we have a hair tie?

The practise is distasteful, but surely the recycling process cleans, disinfects then reconstitutes the rubber.

So girls…don’t put the rubber band in your mouth, unless you wear a dental dam…which I guess (following its use) could be recycled as well.

Britney to adopt twins from China?

Britney Spears looking absolutely glamorousI’ll believe this when I see it.

This silly girl lost custody of her children, and now claims that she’s going to adopt 6 year old twins from China . I don’t think the Chinese government will let it happen.

1. Britney is now officially fat.
According to friends in China any ‘parent’ wanting to adopt Chinese children have to pass a BMI test, or Body Mass Index. In other words the Chinese don’t want fat people adopting their children.

2. Britney doesn’t have custody of her own children.
Let’s not assume that just because she’s getting these children in China that they don’t care what sort of people are doing the adopting. I’m guessing she’ll go through quite a rigorous check, apart from the BMI test, and she’ll come up short – on sanity; on fitness, on weight; and on her ability to sing.

3. I can’t believe I just wrote this post.
Obviously a blatant attempt to generate traffic to my site using the name Britney Spears. I’ll stop now.
