Looks like Randall has started a new series: Cursed Connectors. 01:51, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

I now await the 10Base2 connector with actual bayonet blade attached... 03:27, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
I have now created the series category: Category:Cursed Connectors. Looking forward to see how many and for how long he will continue this series. The Bad Map Projection series continued recently after a long break. --Kynde (talk) 08:05, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Dangit! Its the wrong way around... Wait, it doesn't fit this way either... 01:56, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Oh noes. "iLB" (talk) 03:50, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, this is a nightmare. If you forget (or ignore) your seatbelt, it'll take 3 tries (with flipping) to get it to connect. You'll either have crashed or be ticketed by then. 04:58, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
It teaches you to buckle up _before_ starting the engine. I don't see a problem with that. Elektrizikekswerk (talk) 08:23, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
If you insert the belt before starting up, it gets detected (or not) but without fuss. Only if you insert after you're running do you get "Device inserted", "Device not recognised" or occasionally that sickening mid-point between the two where you get neither because it recognises as a drive, but the drive bit behind it is now RAW instead of FAT/whatever. 09:10, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
Or, possibly, a BSOD. Dansiman (talk) 20:50, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
And creates a new market for "bypass chips". I'll sell you one for the low, low price of $100 :-) 02:22, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
Fortunately it's much easier to remove: instead of fumbling with the button, just right-click and go to "Safely remove seat-belt"... Only problem is it won't let you do that while you're using it... -- 09:25, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

The joke here, is, that it's tough enough to remember which way the connector goes, in, both, the seat belt and the USB receptacle. -- [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]]) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Hey, mister "The joke here, is..."! How are you? You're new to this and seem to be making strange formatting or editing errors. Be careful what you're doing. And it hels if you 'sign' with ~~~~ (four tildes) when you edit the Talk bits. Just to make it easier to understand who (even if anonymous) wrote what and when.
