From the do-it-yourself department comes this clever little trick only a geek could appreciate. Take a slim USB flash memory drive, dismantle a USB cable (functionality optional), and amaze your friends and coworkers as you show off your destroyed USB cable-come-flash drive.

Check out the full scoop with photos of each step at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.

KingMax’s Super Stick flash drives seem ideal for the job, as demonstrated in the instructions. You can grab one in 1GB ($16.99) or 2GB ($24.09) from Overstock.

If you don’t have an extra USB cable lying around, you’re not really a geek you can pick one up for cheap from the low-price cable wizards at MonoPrice: black for $0.66, beige for $0.99, clear/silver for $1.02.
