How to plug in that USB right every time!

Image taken from google search


Everyone knows that all USB plugs have 3 sides:

The wrong side, the opposite-still-wrong-side, and the elusive flip-3-times-to-reveal correct side.

But here's a little hack on how to always find the right side of a USB plug on the first try EVERY TIME.


If you take a look at your USB plug, you would notice that there are 2 holes on each side of the plug. One side has the holes covered.



While the other side has the holes that let you see all the way to the back of the metal port.



Now, if you didn't already know this, here's how to get a USB plug to be in the correct orientation every single time you want to plug it into a USB port. All you need to do is to make sure the side with the holes that you see all the way to the back of the metal port is facing upwards [i.e. towards your ceiling], and you're suddenly a mini David Cop-A-Feel when it comes to plugging in USBs!





Or, you can just make sure the USB logo is facing up.
[Although not all plugs have that logo on them]

My Unpopular Opinion

The V Word
Whenever people talk about love and relationships, one topic will always come up. Sex.

There are those that believe you should only be having sex after you are married, while others believe that sex is a way of life even during singlehood.

I'm not here to voice my views about sex directly, but more specifically, the V word. No, not that V word. The other V word. Virginity.



The Opinion
From ancient civilization to modern times, a female's virginity has always been regarded as something sacred. A virgin is typically regarded as a pure, innocent, clean and well-raised daughter. Parents [especially the older, Asian ones] will always tell their daughters: "It's important that you save your virginity for your husband. Sex is a taboo before marriage!"

Now, here's my unpopular opinion that doesn't sit well with many elders. Virginity should not be considered as something sacred. In fact, in today's modern world, I find it more of a hindrance as opposed to a tool to find your true love.

"Catching" a Partner
There was a reason why cavemen back in prehistoric times were so successful in keeping their wives. I mean, have you ever heard of a prehistoric couple who got divorced? For those of you who don't know how our ancestors managed to catch themselves a wife, well, they literally did.

If a single caveman saw a cavewoman [cavelady?] whom they fancied, they would grab a club, bash the poor girl on the head, and drag her back to his cave, have a good time with her [semi-conscious body] and take her as his "home-prisoner".

Now, I know in modern times, this would be considered kidnap and rape, but the interesting thing is, because the caveman would already be treating his "home-prisoner" as his partner [albeit one that wasn't allowed to leave the cave], the female would soon find it in herself to love her man. Reason being that he satisfies all her primary needs: putting a shelter over her head and bringing food to the table. But probably the most important factor is that she knows that she has already lost her virginity to him, and since he treats her well, well, why not?

The Virgin Blindfold
This system worked well if the man was responsible enough to take good care of the lady. However, back to modern day society, how many stories have we heard of girlfriends or wives sticking to their boyfriends or husbands like glue even though the whole world [except her] can see that she would be so much better off without him?

Physically abusive boyfriends, gambling addicts, control freaks. These are just a few examples of stories from my real life friends who were too blinded by love and lost of Virginity to face the truth that their partner was destroying their lives. It took them years to finally find the courage to break up with their previous partners, but when asked again, they said that if given a second chance, they would have dropped them in a heartbeat.

Virginity is like a blindfold. If you keep holding on to it like some sacred statue, you will always turn a blind eye to the obvious truths that everyone else around you can see. Instead, why not let go of that blindfold so that you'll be able to make a more unbiased decision on who you would want to spend the rest of your life with?

Virginity is not sacred. Making Love is.
This doesn't mean that I'm encouraging kids to go around having sex openly and freely. Coming from a very strict and traditional family, I still put a lot of value on the morals thought to me where ever they make sense.

To me, it doesn't matter how many times you have had sex before, or how many previous partners you have had sex with before. Every single time you have or want to make love, it should be a conscious decision, and with somebody, who, at that point in time, you truly feel that you will be able to spend the rest of your life with. If you're not sure, then it's best to keep them out of your pants until you are.

Notice that I didn't use the word sex in the subtitle. Because this is not sex, this is called Making Love. And it takes some level of maturity to understand the difference between the two. So kids, don't try this at home. Or at work. Or in school. Or in... Just don't try it.

The Big Difference
Sex is just the physical act of having sexual intercourse with another person. There is little or no emotional attachment involved. Making love is when two people who have very strong emotional attachment for each other give themselves to one another. Technically, you can be having sex with anyone or anything, but you can only make love with the person who really owns your heart.

The gratification you get from sex is also many times less than what you get from making love. This is why people who go for sex can never seem to get enough of it, but people who truly make love never understand why others would ever want sex.

The Grand Finale
After saying so much, the point I actually want to make is that I feel that it's ok to lose your virginity as a teenager or youth even before marriage. Of course I still advise everyone to think long and hard [pun intended] before you actually decide to give your virginity to someone. Not because it is sacred, but because it is going to lock you in, physically and emotionally, with this person for a long time.

But if and once you move on, you will actually be better equipped to judge for yourself whether or not your next partner is really going to be your soulmate.

Get your virginity out of the way is key to finding the right person to spend the rest of your life with.
