NightOwl2255: /Always wear your jimmy.


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.

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.

Form factor of USB doesn't bother me. The fact that there's like 18 different goddamn usb types is what bothers me.

Let's see:

USB A
USB B
Mini USB
Micro USB
Micro B USB
Apple's Older stuff
Apple's newer stuff.
Samsungs older stuff.
HTC's older "half trapezoid" USB.

Also, obligatory.


Having to rotate the plug 720 degrees does not prove that the cable exists in 4-diminension space. It proves that USB plugs are fermions, since they have a quantum spin value of one-half.

There's an easy fix, just paint half the plug and half the jack. Then you can see which way it goes.

Most of the time. I have 2 cables and chargers from 2 different vendors that go in opposite ways.

The people that designed USB completely failed Poka-Yoke design.

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.

Yeah, but the guys that she's banging on the side, may not be wearing a jimmy either.

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.

The Angry Hand of God: 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.

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.

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


What about the vertical plugs?
