I was emptying my wastepaper basket the other day, and I stumbled upon the old pieces of tampons that I used for the tampon water absorbency experiment. I thought it would be interesting to show you guys what a used dried tampon looks like, considering the fact that probably nobody would have ever seen one.
(sidenote : Tampax says that you can dispose used tampons in the toilet bowl, so I presume that is what everybody does since it is more troublesome wrapping it up with tissue paper and throwing them into the bin.)
So here you go...
The top one is a normal unused tampon. The middle one was the one used for the experiment and the one at the bottom was the one which I soaked in the mug of water at the beginning.
Here's a closer look..
As you can see from the one in the middle, after drying out, they became pretty rigid. In case you were wondering how rigid.....its not that rigid that you can whack people with it, although whacking people with blood soaked tampons is disgusting enough whether or not it is rigid.
Cool, eh? Now you can go tell people you know how a dried out tampon looks like (although an actual used one should be brownish red in colour).
i'm going to whack you with a hammer when i see you at the end of this year. not only for throwing out my house rules... also for posting this kind of no-brainers.
waaaaaaaaaaat THE FARK man. wahahhaha.
ky : Got some chicks told me I am cool already. Cooler than koi ponds, they say. Hahaha
