    Maybe it'll work out and you'll get to have incredible sex all the time for nearly 20 years.

    Like I do.

    Spool, from this point out you have 3 strikes. Three. Any TMI post about you and @Belasco32 between now and Pax will count as a strike. If you get to three, I take a double dose of klonopin for the dinner, assuring that there are absolutely zero fucks for me left to give. I will have prepared a list of 10 questions regarding the most intimate facets of your sex life, and I will ask them an octave too loud at the table, addressing you, but staring into our Server's eyes.

    *clears throat*
    *pokes head out of the Penny Arcade Band Room.
    *pushes up the bridge of nerd glasses*
    Actually, volume isn't measured in octaves.

    attractiveness isn't measured in BAC but that's how you get your wife to fuck you

    sore from the gym yesterday but all happy because I went. with 3 friends too, a group big enough that no matter what we should be able to find someone to work out with on any given day.

    gotta go again in an hour ish. it's gonna suck but even if I literally just sit on the floor I need to enter that building on consecutive days again. been like 6 months of just getting softer and grosser.

    Benoit was...bad. To put it bluntly. Excessive head trauma (some attribute it to the flying headbutts he was known for as well as other things). From what I understand, at the time of his death they studied his brain and found it to be in something of the range of someone about double his age I believe. It really caused a lot of change in wrestling after what happened (no more chair shots to the head, banning of certain dangerous moves with a penchant for neck/head impacts). The only move from that time still in use today is the Tombstone piledriver which is only used by two people in WWE, The Undertaker and on occasion Kane will pull it out.

    finley woke me up every half hour last night when he decided he needed to tunnel under the covers

    and then five minutes after when he decided it was too hot under there

    he walks up to the head of the bed, spins around, jams his nose sort of under the covers and pushes. this usually means it strips all the covers down to the middle of the bed.

    the only saving grace is that his flight plan, when he goes in, has him rotating counter-clockwise, which means he steps all over frankie's head instead of mine.

    Yeah I assume this is why Punk wasnt allowed to use the Pepsi Plunge as his finisher (top rope pedigree) when he joined up.

    I always find the Benoit story to be tragic in that no one has vocally used it as a warning of the danger of head impacts. Its just that he is a monster and can never be spoken of again.

    What's the worst that could happen if you ask a girl out? That she does a double take, her hand flies up to her mouth in a reflexive attempt to halt the retching, passers-by stop and stare and her distress and your beaten-spaniel-like expression of pleading? Then she collapses, and you reach out only to find she's not retching, she's laughing. And now she's pointing at you. And all the strangers, who by now have formed a ring, are pointing at you and laughing as well. And now your mom is in the crowd, laughing and pointing. And Mr. Whipsnade, your fifth grade PE teacher, who made you do the lesson in your underwear when you forgot your kit.

    Now Mr. Whipsnade is making you run round the entire town in your underwear, screaming abuse at you the whole time. Everyone is laughing. Forever.

    All because you asked a girl out. What were you thinking?

    @syndalis @deebaser @Feral‌
    Guys my wife is having a problem with a thing at work and I do not know Excel or database stuff because I am dumb. Can you answer this possibly?
    Our department has around 160 spreadsheets uploaded to various directories on sharepoint - more are added sporadically as new projects come through each month. Each spreadsheet is updated by users at various times in the month.



    There are column names going from A to AA. The column types are varied; dates, dollar amounts, a comments field, y/n field, etc. Several of the columns contain formulas. Each spreadsheet is populated with a varying number of rows. Some have only 1 row, a few have as many as 5k, but the average is probably under 200 rows.



    I need to be able to pull the rows with data in them from all 160(ish) spreadsheets in to one source so that reports can be created based on the most up to date data. I’m limited to using excel and access. The varying number of rows makes excel problematic, at least with what I know about excel. I don’t have much experience doing linked tables in access so I’m not sure if that could even work with the large number of sources.



    What would be the best way to combine the data in to one source?

    Ok, I can totes help with this, but I do need some basic questions answered.

    1) Is the data expected to be "live" in that if someone updates a spreadsheet, a quick and easy report needs to be generated across all 160 with said updated data?

    2) are the 160 spreadsheets in static locations that can all be easily referenced over the network by a single account?

    3a) Is there any need to relate these tables to each other in a one-to-many fashion? Like, for instance
    --- Spreadsheet A has a listing of all clients, and further info regarding the client
    ----Spreadsheets B-C have a column for the client name, and then individual contracts for said client(s)
    ----Spreadsheet D has a completely different set of info that relates to the client, but is not contract related per se... like expenses.
    And you would need a report with the sum of contract info per client along with relevant expenses?

    3b) id 3a is true, are the client names spelled / typed exactly the same on all spreadsheets enough that they could be used as a key?


    If all of this is true, you can link a shitload of excel spreadsheets in access, set up a quick and dirty schema to relate these spreadsheets, use the query wizard to build you SQL in a GUI like a mini-boss, and then tie the query to a report.

    As spreadsheets are updated by other staffers, all you would need to do is open access, run the report, and print it while doing a sick backflip or something because people will think you are a goddamned wizard. Tell them it took you hours, even though it takes you 1-2 minutes.

    jeez is my brain gonna work today i sure hope so

    so then on subway this morning i was reading that book abt procrastination
    and dude made an analogy

    and i was like holy shit whoaaaaa

    he was like
    A) imagine you're there and you got a big footwide plank 30 ft long
    and you gotta walk across it, that is your task
    maybe you're a bit resentful of having to do such a simple task so you put it off a little, but no big deal, is easy for you

    B ) and then imagine the plank is 100 feet up in the air and you have to cross it
    and you're like shit cuz you're afraid of failing and falling, and dying, and etc

    C) and then you realize building behind you is on fire, so you just force yourself to scoot across the plank however you can even if it is ugly and messy but you do it

    and it's like
    crossing the plank is a task
    mentally raising it up 100 ft high and conflating failure at that task with failure as a human / as a test of your self-worth / fear of being judged, losing job, being embarassed etc, when it's just a simple task

    and then you are paralyze by stress and fear and adreneline because you're conflating it with your survival / self-worth etc

    and then the fire is the actual fear of real things, like a deadline / actually not completing a thing vs. your imagined fears, and you've forced yourself into that situation and so you then have to have to do it
    even if you do it sloppily but you will get it done
    and then mentally you reward yourself because you did get it done, and you shielded yourself from judgement in a way because you can think to yourself, well, if i am judged on the quality of this or something then it's because i know i wasn't putting in a good effort / working with little time... which is a situation you created for yourself

    and i was like

    holy fkn shit

    wot

    this is like exactly what is going on in my head

    but wow understanding it idk crazy
    which will make it easier to address and fix
