The other day while out shopping for computer parts like that-thing-that-connects-an-old-type-iPod-to-a-PC, one Twitter user stumbled upon a truly great deal. For only 200 yen (US$1.70) you can get…um, you know…one of those “things-that-let-you-make-a-USB-into-a-plug.”

The tweet lays out how a typical purchaser of a thing-lets-you-make-a-USB-into-a-plug might sound like.

Me: “I’m looking for one of those things.”
Friend: “Things?”
Me: “I don’t know the name, but it’s a thing that lets you make a USB into a plug.”
Friend: “I have no idea what you’re talking ab…”
Me: “Oh! That’s it there! The name’s right on it!”

Indeed the thing-that-lets-you-make-a-USB-into-plug could be found just above those wires-that-connect-a-monitor-to-a-computer-but-not-the-one-that-looks-like-a-golden-fig-newton-the-trapezoid-one-with-the-screws.

The other day I saw some while out looking for a little-stick-thing-that-you-can-stick-in-USB-and-put-your-pictures-on, but they were like 500 yen ($4.30) a piece. For that price I could buy three of those things-that-are-like-pencils-but-not-really-and-they-work-on-touch-screens.

And so this thing that-lets-you-make-a-USB-into-a-plug is RocketNews24’s Bargain of the Week! Before you buy one, just make sure that you have enough electricity holes or else you’ll need to get one-of-those-dealies-that-sticks-into-an-outlet-and-gives-you-a-whole-bunch-of-other-outlets-preferably-the-kind-with-a-switch-that-lights-up.
