if the Earth were a sandwich
I'd still be shaped like a pear on toothpicks
Yesterday I did not have the cable to download photos from my camera. Of all the cords, dongles, power adapters, archaic media, and old electronic devices around my apartment, I have but one of these particular USB cables.
I went to Radio Shack and they wanted $29.99 for a new one.
Mad, I left in a huff—mentally cursing the snippy salesperson for acting like I was nuts for not wanting to pay 30 dollars for a crappy, thick, un-pliable USB cable.
Then I took a picture of myself next to a piece of bread on the ground, played the New Super Mario Bros, and everything was okay.
Cable found later.
Wow, another sports racer? You a fan of "the Show" ;)

I need a cardreader in my camera bag indeed Naz, preferably one that has a built in cable so I don't lose it.
And John, I _thought_ about making one, but I figured it'd require parts I don't have on hand.

You could have bought a card reader for less. I'm surprised the cable costs that much! Card readers are particularly handy.

Dude I know what you mean about the cables. They rip you off because they know you need it and you cant make it yourself. I'm sure it only costs them about $2 to make.
