Serious side of me: Good. People really need this cure. Especially some specific countries that have a shockingly high infection rate.

Non-serious side of me: Yay! Orgy time!

Did they finally draw blood from Magic Johnson? He's sure to have built up an immunity by this point.

FTA Researchers at Queensland Institute of Medical Research have claimed of making a breakthrough that could lead to a potential cure for AIDS

A claim of a potential cure? Yeah, don't hold your breath.

The bottom of the USB plug has the crack in it. That works if the socket isn't in upside-down.

"...like why we always stick USB drives in upside down"

Shiat ain't funny. I do that all the farking time!

The last thing in the world you would want is to find your Jimmy being sold next to a broken toaster being sold for $22, and have to talk the guy down to $17. Just make sure you take it home and wash it off, then you should feel complete again.

60% of the time, the seam side is on the bottom every time.

Seriously, would it have killed them to make the USB a little more obviously asymmetric, like firewire? It's especially annoying when you're buried in a rack with very little light trying to hook stuff up.

Also, fark Logitech for abandoning bluetooth. Not really relevant, just had to say it.

Shiat. I fried a USB drive sticking it in backwards. The drive only had a little plastic piece with the contacts, and nothing to prevent you from plugging it in the wrong way.

I saw them in concert once, their guitarist looked like Sam Kinison added 200 lbs, and some completely stoned girl spent half the concert with her hand in my pants.

I didn't pay a doctor to slit holes in my nuts and fish around inside to tug out the little strings to cut them and tie knots in them and stuff them back in and sew up the holes with a needle and thread so I could wear a "Jimmy" while I bang my wife of 19 years.

there already IS a cure. it just isn't a feasible one. bone marrow translates from elite controllers (people with natural genetic immunity)

Did you know, you can actually plug USB into Ethernet port?

Look for the the wholes on USB. They are always up for horizontal USB ports

Great on the HIV but POO on the USB. It was designed so that it CAN BE attempted upside down. Good design means either it's quite obvious which way is correct or (even better) insert it either way and it just works.

Sure hope they are right about an AIDS vaccine/cure. There have been similar stories over at least the last 20 years however.

You want to see the contacts face up, or forward when inserting it. For 'normal' USB connections, the seam should also be away from you. I check it 90% of the time before inserting it.

I also check the arrow on the gas gauge of my car when pulling into the gas station I have two cars with tanks on opposite sides.

I do have a hell of a time getting the charger into the phones in poor lighting conditions.

This was in a vertical slot. I was pretty drunk when I did that. Needless to say, I have never done it since.

But the thread has more comments about USB drives than AIDS.

/Cool thing about AIDS, but a large step forward isn't there yet if you are waiting for a cure, so not news.

I'd guess because it was meant to be super cheap, and that would have made it less super cheap.

You know that Intel commercial where the inventor of the USB walks in to the cafeteria? If I were there, I'd grab him by the feet and shove his head in to a garbage can. Then, I'd pull him out, flip him over and push him back in. "How do you like that? Is that fun?"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they recently discover that it's any bone marrow transplant that works, not just one from elite controllers?

Actually the symbol on the connector is supposed to line up with the symbol on the host. From what I remember of the spec though, that's a "should" and not a "must". Hence the farked up world in which we live.
