There is only one important rule to live by:

Never lend anyone your 256 GB USB-C/USB-B combo memory stick. There is a 100% scientifically-backed certainty that you will never, in your meager existence, see it again.

    What if you boobytrap it with a thermonuclear device and a timer?

    I smell a startup idea

    Borrowed my 2TB USBHDD to my friend for storing his project files on in early February.
    Haven't seen it since.

    If you give anyone any nice thing like good wireless charger, good wireless earphones, 3m kevlar type-c cable, etc I bet you’ll never see it again

    Lol imagine giving anyone your wireless mechanical keyboard. I won’t even give it to my mother. For other people I have special cables, that garbage micro usb cables that came with vapes from aliexpress, that’s all I have. But for me I have Nomad Kevlar cables and fuck the whole world

    Next time lend them a USB killer.

    @uyouthe keyboard is a hygiene item. I wouldn't want anyone's keyboard, or at least would need to thoroughly clean it before use.

    Idk what kind of friends you guys have, but I've lent all sorts of stuff from pendrives through phones up to laptops and GPUs to people, and I always got them back.

    Maybe a part of this is that I always agree on the duration and, once overdue, keep mentioning it every time we meet until I get my stuff back. Also I'm picky about the people I lend valuables to. Except for pens. I always have at least 3 pens I didn't have a week ago and will probably lose or give away within a week.

    If you borrow out a keyboard, always hand over your nastiest keyboard together with a keyboard caps remover, a printed out comparison of bacteria on keyboard vs bacteria in a toilet and a how to properly clean it.

    At least there is a chance of getting it back better than it was.
