Ask Hoopla:
« on: January 11, 2010, 07:25:47 pm »
I have no credentials, I didn't finish High School, and never went to any post secondary school... so I know basically nothing, but I'm mostly honest...

Save yourself the psychiatry bill and ask me.  I will answer you to the best of my ability at the moment I am answering... no question too trivial, no question too awkward...

What is the excel formula which will call text strings from other columns?

I want a formula which produces the following output:

"Unit <value from column D>, Reading <Value from Column E>, <value from column F>"


any idea how to do that?

When they stopped telling people that noses also grow during puberty.

I have no idea, I am very sorry.

Whatever happened to Saturday night
When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright?
It don't seem the same since cosmic light
Came into my life, I thought I was divine...

I used to go for a ride with a chick who'd go
And listen to the music on the radio
A saxophone was blowin' on a rock & roll show.
You climbed in the back seat, you really had a good time.

Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock 'n' roll.

My head used to swim from the perfume I smelled
My hands kind of fumbled with her white plastic belt
I'd taste her baby pink lipstick and that's when I'd melt
She'd whisper in my ear tonight she really was mine

Get back in front, put some hair oil on
Buddy Holly was singing his very last song.
With your arms around your girl you'd try to sing along.
It felt pretty good, oh, you really had a good time.

Hot patootie, bless my soul, I really love that rock 'n' roll.

Oh right, I forgot you were in Toronto.

There is a small alley across from CityTV, often somewhat sketchy gentlemen stand around in there selling weed.  DO NOT SHOW THEM YOUR MONEY FIRST, no matter what they say.  it can be dangerous.  Wear a helmet.

Nostalgia grows with age, people almost always forget that it was never as good at the time as it seems to you later.
