Whenever I try to plug in an USB cable, the first try, it won't go in.

Flip it over and the Second try, it still won't go in.

Flip it over again and the Third time it won't - usually go in.

But the FOURTH TRY always works!

But turning it over three or four tries when a USB cable only has two sides!?!

That sucker has GOT to be part of the Fourth Dimension!

How about that Inward Questers?

@Grace- Thanks:) @Dollar Anne-If that's the case then Scart leads must be part of 12th dimensional. Lol:)

Thanks for the laugh. :-)

I have some advice just look at where the pins are located and where the pins receptors are located. Then you will get it first try every time. :-)

I know you shouldn't have to look into the USB port it should just fit one way but they for some reason decided to make it confusing.

I remember even my Atari 2600 joysticks made sure the plugs were shaped as a trapezoid so that you could only plug them in one way. Actually you can only plug in the USB one way but they don't make it obvious. lol

There is always a joint on the external metal cover. when plugging in, let the joint side be at the bottom. It will go in every time.
Alternativey, there is a USB sign on one side of the plug. Plug in when this sign is on the upper side (though plugging in will be a challenge if you are doing it in the dark). It will go in first time.

That's because there has to be an alignment between the energy of creation and your desired outcome.

With each try, your desire for the plug to "fit" became more and more in alignment with "all that is" until finally the "event" locked in place with the third quardrant of the moon, the eastern star and the galactic centre, all creating a harmonic resonance with your chackras, especially your third eye, and causing the plug to connect in all dimensions at once.

But as a long standing member of this group, I fugured, you already knew that!

@Dollar Bill- Tell Anne that one side has a little seam on it, and that is the down side. If she cannot see it, she can feel it with a nail. That works for me. Thanks for the laugh!

Umh, I left my computer logged in to IQ and my wife, Anne, made this post. Oops!

Glad you all enjoyed the joke! Every evening when she plugs in our rechargeable devices, cell phones, etc, I hear her growling, trying to line up the USB cables.

Thanks for the advice, passing it on!

It goes the same with VGA cables for your computer monitor. At work, we are convinced there is an unwritten law that no matter where you are or what you're doing......when you go to plug in a VGA cable it will always be "upside down."
