How To Plug In a USB Cable And Get It Right

OK, so I’ve seen a ton of posts from people all over the Internet complaining about how they can never get a USB cable to plug in right the first time. Some of my friends ask me, “Hey, Miguel… How the $#*$ do you get your USB cable to plug in properly every single time?!?!” For those of you who don’t want to buy a $2000 plane ticket just to come see me plug a USB cable in, I’ve decided to up the ante on this subject and make your dreams come true. Once I’m done with you, you can rest assured that career opportunities as a USB cable plug guy will rain upon you like fresh drops of apple nectar. In other words, there’s no such thing as a career in plugging USB cables. I just thought you’d know that.

That said, I’ve had my first interview with a friend who owns a site called Marginal Boundaries, a blog dedicated to the expat lifestyle.

Technologies Mommy Will Really Appreciate This Month

Remember that lady who changed your diapers while you were busy giving her a hernia and some gray hairs? Remember that lady that cleaned up after you messes at school and gave you a free ride the first 18 or so years of your life? I remember that lady, and I call her “mom.” We’ve all got one of those ladies in our lives, and sometimes some of us men are even lucky enough to get married to a lady like that (You know who you are!). What kind of person would you be if you didn’t take at least one day of the year to wish your mom a happy Mother’s Day?
