Using dd you can do that.. it will not destroy your hard-disk as long as
you do not mistype the device name.. that said.. the USB bandwidth is
not dedicated but shared across all devices connected to the
controller..so it may or may not be faster than writing one device at time.

But, considering that a flash stick writes much slower than what what
the USB can send, connecting a dozen sticks and writing to all of them
simultaneously is actually faster ;-)

Otherwise, you can connect the forty, and create a small script that
writes ten of them, waits, then writes the next 10, etc - as long as you
have a big enough hub, of the powered kind.
