      why? they've not been "used"

    • therealguy

      if you wanna survive, you'll do just about anything… or just die

    • Tim

      If only you could come up with a use for girls for the week they need this.

    #13 …..what. in. the. actual. fuck.

    • Owen Smithers

      Good idea. Those little foam ear plugs make good fletchings for darts as well.

  • Larry

    First barbie, now this. Whats going out CHIVE! Bring us humps and gaps!!!!

    • Larry

      *going on

    • Educator

      Let me lay this out for you really plainly… There's PLENTY of both hard and soft code porn sites on the net. More than we need, really. The Chive is a community with an appreciation for a lot of things. Some of them are humps, some are gaps, and some are in no way related to female body parts. It is these non-chivette posts that bring the Chivettes themselves to this site. If The Chive were all humps and gaps all the time, we'd lose them. Then there would be no humps or gaps. So, either put your pecker away, or go to another site, but either way be thankful for what we have here and enjoy the non-hump, non-gap posts for what they are: entertaining.

      • Educator

        code = core

        Stupid phone.

      • Dick Salad

        Well spoken

      • PubicJones

        The Chive is turning into a website for faggots and other worthless sensitive whiners who think they have life figured out.

        • Giggle

          Seems Educator is a lot closer to having it figured out than you are. Good luck in whatever it is that you do.

    • Frédéric Purenne

      There this place called google, you can type all you want… like humps and gaps!

    • Larry

      OK then. Wow Educator sorry to hit a nerve. While I do usderstand that the Chivettes are very important to this site, and I do love what they do for it, I think you missed my point. I like the other post as well. The tree houses, the foreign places and luxury cars, Chive everywhere and so on. They are great. But barbie living with gay ken, and women product to survive. Really? I'm sorry if I offended you by talking about them, and I appriciate the advice of how to search porn on google, but i'd rather not. I prefer to leave their sexiness to the imagination. Sorry again and I hope you and Ken, and oh yea barbie have a great day.

        I take it your not an outdoorsman

  • Mr. Know-it-all

    Artofmanliness is actually a great site. A lot of the boys on here could learn a thing or two from them.

    • bangerang

      just read that on AoM this morning

    • sobuck

      Love that site and Creek's

    • Owen Smithers

      I concur. In this increasingly feminized world, males need to remember how and consistently practice being well-rounded men. Never stop learning, and develop and cultivate new skills. Don't be dicks, just be good men.

          I think you've had enough to cover the rest of us for a long time.

    • tybardy

      just read this on AoM the other day… and I am glad theCHIVE reposted it

  • George Forman

    I prefer to keep used ones as a light snack.

    • Sugar Ray Tampon

      LOL – best comment on here. AND the fact that your name is George Forman – can you imagine pressing one of those used ladies on a foreman grill and making a skewer out of one? You wouldn't need any dipping sauce, that's for sure!

  • wicked

    they are also used by soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan to plug gunshot wounds.

    • frantic

      you would simply bleed to death. you should rather inform yourself a little bit about compression bandage, israeli bandage or Tourniquets!

      • wicked

        im quite familiar with both i served in the military for 4 years. i know all about the things you've mentioned and im fairly confident that they will work just a well as compression bandages. the best thing to use would be quick clot depending on where you or your buddy have been shot. and lastly anything that will plug a hole will stop the bleeding, they are used by medics over there and im pretty sure they know what they are doing.

        • justsomeguy

          i doubt you were in the military, and if you were you sure as fuck werent infantry. every combat mos knows that using tampons in wounds is dumb as fuck. the fuckin tampon doesnt go all way the fuck in the hole and it doesnt do shit for soaking up blood. so you end up bleeding to death internally. plus most tampons have anti-coagulants embedded in them so chicks flows will liquify and get soaked up quicker… the exact fuckin opposite thing you want if youre trying to stop bleeding. the best method for stopping bleeds is a fuckin CAT (if youre military you know what that is.. if youre googling it now then go fuck yourself). quick clot is used for extremely deep internal bleeds that cant be stopped with a CAT because of their location. it isnt the best, it actually sucks. its pretty much just as effective as kerlex. quick clot is designed as a last ditch effort to stop inguinal and axillary bleeds. btw this is coming from a fuckin airborne combat medic. we do not fuckin use them. if youre still in you better check yourself into a CLS class soon because if you try that on a wounded buddy youll fuckin kill him.

          • ArmyMedic

            true story! why is is this guys response downvoted?

    • Mrs_Conejo

      athletic trainers, for sports teams, like to keep them them in their med kit for nose bleeds as well.

    • USA

      also for when the soldiers are on their periods.

      • Alpha0010

        They are designed to absorb blood…

    • Collin

      It's closer to ten months really. There's a lag between when the gamete deposits, the point of conception and when the zygote burrows into the wall of a womb.

      • ColaChiver

        Does your life really suck that bad?

        • 'sota

          Hahaha you win

      • ProudMama

        Also, few women actually have a period right after having the baby (there is what comes from giving birth but tampons cannot be used for that)… many women who breastfeed don't have one until their baby is months (6, 10, 14 months) old. It is different for everyone depending on the person and whether they exclusively nurse, exclusively bottle feed or do a combination of both.


    Nothing on it about how to survive my wife every month.

  • boob_cuddle

    Oh yeah chicks walk around with enough tampons to survive off of.

  • CanadianPiper

    I wonder if Bear Grylls knows about all this????

    • Beev

      He uses them to absorb his piss so he can save it for later

      • Gunner

        @ Beev LMFAO

    #16 … Also, it's useful as a crack pipe kids!

    Art of Manliness should be upset with you guys about this – I think they deserve a bit more credit than a small via tag.

    Same deal with your architectural posts, most of them are from

    The Chive is The Chive – keep it that way and stop ripping off people's shit.

    • ColaChiver

      Holy flying hell I wish people would quit bitching about this and saying the Chive rips stuff. It's the internet you shit dick, get use to it. Do you expect them to just come up with totally original stuff out of their office every half hour to entertain you?

      It's an office not the magical fucking Keebler Elf Factory. Get over it and just enjoy the posts because you know if they had to wait to post something original every time, people would bitch about that too. You're just about as cool as people who get offended about stuff on the internet.

      • yup

        But the art work they steal and sell on their shirts … that is just ok with you…. as long as you get one.

      • TheAndy

        I am far from offended. Aren't you the one who replied with a profanity-laced rant? Calm down, have some cola.

      • Deanovzw

        Good call, thumbs up 🙂

    • Mr. Know-it-all

      I think it is a good thing for other sites, as long as they are credited. Sure, it isn't in big bold letters at the top but it still gives them publicity. I found out about The Art of Manliness from another site, and I suspect that at least a couple more people will check it out after seeing this.

    • wandathefish

      85% of the tattooed hotties are suicidegirls, no?

    • S.Arcasm

      I agree. The Chive really needs to stop ripping off other people. For example, did you know that you can find the word 'chive' in the DICTIONARY???

      • USA

        and you can find most of the chive's content on other sites. true story

  • @valorikx221

    Cool. Will be adding these to my bug out bag

  • tv_paul

    What's Macgyver doing now?

    • F3n1x187

      Trying to reach outer space with an enclosed water tank, mentos a 2lt cocacola bottle and some medical oxigen tanks

        He is a general in the Air Force and works in Cheyenne Mountain.

  • remix_

    I'll add a box to my zombie survival kit!

  • voltviking

    Used tampons can be used as teabags for vampires

    • Shay

      actually, it can't… not real blood… endometrium lining 🙂

    • socalmarti

      I was gonna say that!!!!! LOL! 😉

    • Maxi Pad

      Or as a weapon – if you throw it around and chuck it at someone (preferable one who is running away)

  • Lou

    Waaaaaaaaay too much time on this guy's hands.

    • Owen Smithers

      Better than that ridiculous video yesterday with Truth of Dare card in NY.

    • The Fapster

      Says the "Chiver" who likely BEATS off to every posting on here (this one included)

  • Dick Salad

    #2 is pretty cool and you could throw some charcoal in there to aid the filtration of contaminates. I've heard of grunts carrying them as supplemental field dressings as well, but I've never actually seen someone have them on hand…

  • TylerDurdenUMD

    Bloody good article.

    • Vampire teabag

      Ahahahaha. I see what you did there.

  • Girth Vader

    Small gunshot wound didnt make the list? I’ve always carried them since my first deployment.

  • iXOredheds

    I usually say "give that man a tampon" when a guy is acting like a complete wuss. This kind of changes that a bit.

    • Jack o' lantern

      You sound like a douche
