March 17: Driving Out the Snakes

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated every March 17th. The religious feast day was meant to commemorate the anniversary of Saint Patrick’s death. He’s the patron saint of Ireland, and, according to legend, chased all the snakes out of Ireland. That’s been debunked, but it’s still a great idea.

On March 17, and every March 17, drive the snakes out of your home, and by snakes I mean any twisty, curvy, slithery cables you might have in your house that you don’t need anymore. Make this the day you take inventory of all of the cables in your house. Got any obsolete USB cables or other connectors around the house that you’re not using anymore? Gather them together and banish them. By “banish” I don’t mean throw them in the trash. Instead, find someone that needs them or get them to a proper e-waste recycling center.

How about it? Grab your green beer or Shamrock Shake, hunt for your snakes, and make this March 17th your annual cable inventory day too. Shoutout out to reader George G. for this idea.
