Do they offer a full refund on the backpacks if you're not satisfied?

Total number of official 2018 Winter Olympic condoms given out is reportedly 110,000 units.
Divide by number of competitors (2920) and you get ~38 condoms per person.
Hey, that could be fun times!

Patriotism

I can send to only a few friends because patriotism doesn't seem to be a shared value any more.

But every once in a while you see a simple act of patriotism that just fills your heart with so much pride that you get a lump in your throat!
