HammRadio Today: 6/5/2007 -- <br>Silly String Saves Lives, Silly Putty Used As Emergency Condoms

So it seems that Silly String might be helpful to our Soldiers in Iraq to find IEDs [Improvised Exploding device] that have been caused a good bulk of the deaths since major hostilities ended. So a soldiers mother in NJ has started a campaign to send Silly String to the boys.

Unfortunately, sending silly string in the mail is not really recommended by the military:

"We appreciate this generous show of support of our troops, but we encourage citizens to do so by sending other non-aerosol items in care packages, as aerosol items are considered hazardous materials and are costly to ship," according to a statement from the U.S. military's Combined Press Information Center in Iraq.

Now the silly string solution seems like a great idea, but I have a feeling it's just going to be used for practical jokes:

According to HammRadio sources, we've heard that our soldiers are using silly putty as emergency condoms:
