The name is wackyteen for a reason. Never doubt.

I went with 4 because of the 3/5 thing, which I completely agree with.

3's enough for me, but I only use a laptop at the moment.

Mous/keyboard needs 2. One for my controller. One extra one for whatevs.

4 seems pretty legit as the "minimum" Ideally I would want like 6 which is what I have now so I don't have to worry about unplugging things when you want to connect an external HDD and charge my phone.
Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

M/K, two controllers + my phone is usually plugged in. I wouldn't be comfortable with under 6.

Mine has 6, which I say is enough. I use two for the keyboard/mouse, one for my wifi adapter, and one for my PSP/iPod/whatever. The other two are nice to have just in case.

So yeah, 4 minimum.

i would say 4. one for Mouse, one for keyboard, 2 spares for whatever you want.

my laptop has 3 and i use them all (mouse, keyboard, cooling pad) but i have a spare on my cooling pad (in exchange for the one it uses on my laptop) which effectively makes 4.
