What's another 400,000 in Olympic condom distro?

Last week, I heard that the IOC and Co. were injecting the Olympic Village with a cache of condoms, totaling 100,000 in count.



Au contrere, mon frere.

The Beijing Health Bureau thought this initial number was tailored more to a Young Life church lock-in, and decided let's just bump that up to half a mil, shall we?


"About 400,000 free condoms have been distributed [by the Beijing Health Bureau] to 119 contract hotels of the Olympic Games to ensure that safe sex takes place during the fortnight-long event...Xinhua quoted Jin Dapend [Beijing Health Bureau’'s Party chief] as saying that condoms had been put in over 90,000 rooms of 424 hotels rated three stars and above." (Freshnews.in)

Unsure if it's related (it is), but Michael "Prowl-Mode" Phelps can't seem to get this look off his face since wrapping up...his competition portion of the games.

If you want to seriously get into the RC helicopter hobby, then a glow engine chopper is perfect for realism, building, maintaining and flying! You will be able to personalize your chopper exactly the way you want it, like hover time and rotor speed. Once you get a feel for your helicopters, and have everything adjusted perfectly, your rc airplane will fly just the way you want it and not the way some factory decided it should. Vantage's compact size and tail-light feature, in combination with its powerful C4 led, make it the perfect tactical hands-free light for firefighting personnel and other first responders who require lighting tools with extreme brightness and long run times, said wolf-eyes light Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. Its integrated bracket design makes it extremely easy to use - firefighters can attach or remove the tacticale flashlight in seconds without the need for tools, and rotate it 360 degrees on the swivel clamp
