The onslaught of technology threatens to degenerate mankind into a species of ignorami, imbeciles, and nincompoops. Fight the trend by going old school, back to when men counted using sticks and rocks. Make a USB stick drive today!

Step 1: Parts needed

Stuff you'll need for a stick drive:

1. A stick* of about 3/4 inch diameter
2. A USB drive
3. Hand saw
4. Hot glue and gun

* Suggestions for type of stick: black walnut gives a classical and refined look, balsam is the most weight-friendly, cypress is good for its resistance to water damage.  I chose maple because of its hardness (however it may soon be banned by Major League Baseball due to its tendency to shatter).
A great way to stick to the basic essentials :D
It's fun!! hahaha By the way, in portuguese this joke (literally a stick) dont works. I give you a A+!
you could open the case press it in and hollow the same piece of wood you cut off to fit over the flash drive, so it would be water resistant-a bit.
I'm with nickodemus, but the basic idea is there. I may have to do this now! You have my vote.
Although I was expecting a thumb drive embedded in the stick, this is just as nice. :)
I think its a better idea for it not to imbedded because it could over heat Ncce Stick Drive by th way rodgercrump
It's OK!
