    Do they come in flavors ??
    Cherry?
    JK......

    We keep them in the fire-starter kit
    and the wrappers are excellent for
    keeping them dry for lighting.

    I'd have to question several uses he has listed. I confirmed with the manufacturer of several brands of tampons, that they do contain an anti-coagulant. This ingredient promotes blood flow. I don't think I'd put that in or on a wound that I was trying to make stop nor would I want to drink water being filtered by it.

    That's a good point Condor.

    They are great for fire-starters though.
    [And, something is just weird about
    putting them in your mouth......but that's
    prolly "just a guy thing" , as my wife would say !]

    Tampons are one of those things that Keyboard Commandos love to talk about, but really are very much over blown. Yes, Navy SEALs and other cool guy units used them back in Vietnam. Bandages, treatments, coagulants, and medical tech in general has come a long, long way since Vietnam. Bandages are easily available that do the job people recommend the tampon for much, much better, and sometimes for not much cost.

    I don't carry tampons, but I have had some occasions to be the first car on a nasty car wreck or three. My weapon of choice? HUGGIES AND PAMPERS!

    If you have ever seen a diaper soak up pee, then you know it can hold a lot.
    They have a non-stick surface that keeps them from drying on the wound.
    They cover a LOT of real estate.
    No anticoagulents.
    Elastic edges keep them against the body as it flexes and moves.

    Two times when the first responders showed up they said, "Who is the guy handing out papmers?" When the crowd pointed me out, I got a universal thumbs up from the firemen and police. I don't know that I would use a tampon, but I keep a bunch of diapers in the bag.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    Ha...funny....but you are absolutely right! I hate that I often get sent to go buy them when she is out. I mean I do it...man up and all......but hey..... plan ahead dahlin'! It's not like you don't know it's coming.

    The Huggies/Pampers thing is a thought. Those suckers have never ceased to amaze me how much they hold.
