If not, here's an ominous picture I took of it last night at around 4am

I'm glad everyone likes my giant 2gb flash drive

The Story of the Giant 2GB Flash Drive 

Okay so it all starts back at the end of freshmen year of college. A friend of mine who's a graphic design major took a class that had a very strange final project all things considered lmao. Basically you're supposed to take a very small object (say a lighter, flash drive, etc) and enlarge it while keeping as much detail of said item as possible. She picked flash drive because it didn't seem that bad, but it ended being a little bit of a nightmare

given how many cardboard parts were needed to get the whole thing looking as to scale as possible. That, and the paint needed was a whole hecking lot hahaha. So she finishes it, hands it in, gets it back with a grade, and then decides she never wants to see it again which fair enough, right? lol. So she starts trying to pawn it off, I see my chance to own this majestic item and the rest is history.

@MairuzuRoxs I mean, I probably would have done the same thing though fwiw

@KBY30 hey look man, I just need more space

@MairuzuRoxs

That is the perfect place to hide a USB drive.

... or a USB-3 external hard disk with just the plug exposed, so you have to connect your device to the thing...

@MairuzuRoxs

Too big for what? It's definitely not too big to hide a thumb drive in.

It is like the gag in a murder mystery. The last gasping words is "The file is in the USB drive in the basement." They enter the basement and see that giant thing.

@yam655 OH WAIT OOPS LOL I can't read, thought you meant like putting into a pc or something lmfao

@MairuzuRoxs

@MairuzuRoxs From the cropped preview it looked like a cross between Ant-Man and an Enderman from Minecraft.
