Embrace the T.A.M.P.O.N.

Do me a favor for the next five minutes. Try to forget everything you know about tampons. I know, it’s hard. But pretend that this is the first time you have ever seen or heard of the item below, and it is a new survival product on the market: the Tactical Adventure Medical Preparedness Outdoors Necessity (T.A.M.P.O.N.)

All kidding aside, a tampon really does have a ton of uses to a survivor. One could even argue for including a couple in your survival kit. Ultimately, I’ll let you be the judge.

Before I get into the details of this post, a brief history of the tampon might surprise you.

The tampon is actually regulated in the US by the Food & Drug Administration as a Class II Medical Device. The word “tampon” is a derivative of the French word tapon which means “a little plug or stopper.” My research indicates that tampons were used as early as the 19th century as battle dressings to plug bullet holes. There are even accounts of tampons being used as wound plugs in modern warfare. A friend of mine told me that it’s not uncommon for Army Medics to carry tampons in their med kits. They are also the perfect product for a bloody nose. There seem to be mixed accounts of whether the tampon was used as a feminine product before or after its use on the battlefield.

The Box o' Truth has an additional use that is more gun related.

I've known that "battle dressings", and "maxi pads" share a common manufacturer for years.

And "plugs", work great for basic "pluggin" of bullet holes. Not sucking chest wounds, totally not working for that.

Whodathunkit?

I can always use another 1911.

I do not want to date a female who needs a "4 bore duck gun"... No, not at all.

Most of the world's population gets by without them, we can too. They are illegal in the Phillipines. A Catholic country, vibrators are illegal, too. The men in control don't want the women doing much of anything along those lines.
