I fully agree!!! The worst is the acting (from writing) of persons who quarrel and talk as if nothing happens to human language, emotions and understanding the next x hundred years; same goes for movies trying to depict the past, the minimal understanding of language structure would help (we talk way faster now than a hundred years ago, and the ego is much more evolved thus most conversations in past or future movies are emotionally totally off the mark)

Comment use them for geocaching (Score 1) 546

small usb drives are perfect to put inside geocaches, especially as first find - any nice cc photos, music or even programs will do as gifts, and google earth links or clues for finding other caches will be really interesting too (then you can have the usb key be a permanent part of the cache, so the finder may have to bring a laptop on the trail:)
