Well, it got violated on one of my very rarely updated ones, but in a very fun way.
Note the first link from "Talk:Hiking equipment" to my copy of a 1995 document rating the quality of condoms. The original page has extensive discussion of the possible use of a condom as an emergency water container for hiking, and reference the 1995 document due to its reference to a condom being bale to hold 3 liters of water.
I had a lot of fun reading through their discussion. :)
