That's not true! That's a USB drive!

Playing a Dark Lord of the Sith to retrieve your data is fun.

USB drives have become a commodity, and, like other things we have too many of, it's hard to make individuals stand out. That's why I find this Luke Skywalker-getting-maimed USB drive to be doubly awesome: it's my favorite climactic scene from the original trilogy and a bad-ass USB drive to boot (not meaning it's bootable, just meaning...well, you know).

Sure, it may be cumbersome to have to sever the son of Anakin's hand to access your work documents for serious business, but it will always remind you of the sacrifice the young Jedi had to endure.

As a side note, I'd like to say to any girls who think this is awesome that I live in Seattle and am available most nights after 7:00 p.m.
