The point is, you apply those odds to large numbers, and you WILL have a lot of accidental pregnancies. Even with responsible adults. (Thursday Jul 10 | post #756020)
According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), an estimated 10.4 billion male condoms were used worldwide in 2005. Of these, around 4.4 billion condoms were used for family planning and 6.0 billion condoms for HIV prevention. 15 It has been estimated that in 2015, nearly 18 billion condoms will be needed in low- and middle-income countries. 16 - See more at: http://www.avert.o rg/condoms-effecti veness-history-and -availability.htm# sthash.ML8fxubP.dp uf" Do you know how to calculate percentages or should I do it for you? Silly question. 10% of 10.4 billion is 1.04 billion failed condoms. 5% would be half that. And those are 2005 numbers. They're likely higher now. That seems to me like it could result in a lot of unwanted, unplanned pregnancies of otherwise responsible adults. (Thursday Jul 10 | post #755895)
That's a whole lot of failed condoms. (Thursday Jul 10 | post #755887)
You do understand that 90-95% is not 100%, right? That it means that for every 100 times a condom is used, 5 to 10 will fail. How many times a day in the U.S. do you suppose condoms are used? (Thursday Jul 10 | post #755835)
Employer paid benefits are not a gift. They are an earned benefit/part of the compensation one gets for the work one does. (Wednesday Jul 9 | post #755272)
Hey Mac! Hopefully better. I have a job prospect and should be joining the ranks of the employed again soon. How about you? (Wednesday Jul 9 | post #755269)
Were you a virgin right up until you decided to conceive? (Tuesday Jul 8 | post #754927)
Tater tots are delicious! And no, they're not children. They're little deep fried potato balls. Crunchy on the outside. Mushy on the inside. (Tuesday Jul 8 | post #754926)
Probably easier when you don't have to do it very often. (Tuesday Jul 8 | post #754742)
