Hey Geezer, thanks for this.
You give me hope --- not just of being dry, but getting back to the Big Apple. Wheeeee!
I'm three weeks into a prostate free life and considering investing all my retirement money in pad makers. With the way I've been churning through them every day I figure just my business will propell the industry to new highs! But, I don't complain. I can get through the night on one pad. If I'm up and out shopping I like to change every 90 minutes. I could probably double that, and still be okay, but I'm not sure at one point a pad gives up, and I don't want to find out in a shopping center. If I am out going for a walk I probably leak half what I do in a shopping center. If I'm sitting down one pad would do me for several hours.
Again, like Geezer, I report the above not because it's important, (except to me, that is) but simply for others to benchmark a bit.
