I have a box full of various cords and cables. Once a year I have to rummage around in it to find a specific one. Takes nearly all day.
Easily solved: plug one end in to the music-generating-device and then listen to each of the earbuds until you find two that work. Of course, that doesn’t solve the problem of untangling them, but now that you have working headphones again that’s not really a problem any more, is it?
Kris Straub of chainsawsuit proposed something similar, but involving one of those Y-splitters, but mentioned that before too long, you’re just walking around with a mess of wires on your head.
“Man, that guy has a wiry beard…”
I see a face, does anyone else see a face? I see a face.
If you go to a craft store, you can find these little plastic things for winding string around. I think they are called floss bobbins. If you buy a pack of those, you can wind the cords on them when you do your yearly untangle. Then it shouldn’t be as big of an issue in the future.
Did anyone else try and trace the cords? It seems like everything matches up if you make a couple of assumptions where the thick black lines overlap going the same direction in the plane.
