"While USB can be plugged in one of three * ways, PS/2 has an infinite number of orientations, all of which will bend the pins, none of which will make it go in the bloody socket."

Not to mention you're not supposed to plug them in hot, as PS/2 ports require a dedicated IRQ (12) and run the risk of freezing the machine if you try a hot-plug.
