Trivia via Network Cable

By Deane Barker on August 29, 2008

Joe bought some (wildly over-priced) network cable from Best Buy, and it had this printed on the side, lengthwise:

The length of this 14’ cable is roughly double the appropriate distance of the imaginary bubble of personal space one uses at the ATM.

The Geek Squad phone number is included, in case this amazing fact has suddenly made you remember that your computer is horked.

I assume other cables have other handy facts on them.



  1. Give Joe my number & have him give me a call next time he feels the need to throw a bunch of money away on a patch cable. I’d be happy to help him out.
