What I didn’t like about this episode of Supernatural was that Sam managed to plug in the usb drive on the first try. like, come on, not even Sam Winchester is that good

Unrealistic standards everywhere. 

Some new USB drives make it a lot more obvious which side goes up, but even if you don’t have a newer style, a tiny Sharpie dot (as seen below) on the side that goes up will save some of your sanity and it doesn’t hurt your computer.

Sam’s a geek, and I’m going with the idea that he totally knew what he was doing.
