The things that boggles my mind.

Preamusement. That I now go out of my way to replace the generic noun 'shit' with more appropriate words. See, all that harping wasn't lost on me.

Point of post, as such. Excel is a great and powerful program, right? But I kid you not, there's not an easy way to replicate this.
$rings = array("Seal of Jin",
               "Band of Jin",
               "Seal of the Gurabashi Berserker",
               "Band of Veiled Shadows",
               "Ring of Fury",
               "Quick Strike Ring",
               "Band of Accuria",
               "Circle of Applied Force",
               "Archimtiros' Ring of Reckoning",
               "Master Dragonslayer's Ring",
               "Ring of the Qiraji Fury",
               "Ring of the Godslayer",
               "Ring of the Unliving",
               "Band of Reanimation",
               "Band of Unnatural Forces",
               "Bonesycthe Ring",
               "Signet Ring of the Bronze Dragonflight"
$enda = count($rings) ;
echo "<table>\n";
for ($r1 = 0; $r1 < $enda ; $r1++)
   $ring1 = $rings[$r1] ;
   for($r2 = $r1+1; $r2 < $enda ; $r2++)
      $ring2 = $rings[$r2] ;
      echo "<tr><td>$ring1</td><td>$ring2</td></tr>\n" ;
echo "</table>";

Summary: I can't make a possible combinations array out of an array of items. Boggles my mind. It's a nested for loop and the great and mighty excel cannot do it without VB. At least, I haven't figure out how, and neither had Google under my search terms!

Dubya. Tee. Eff.

In other news, my time of freedom approaches. Oh, how I taste it.

Elvis Presley quotation: "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times." → QFT.

They did believe in me. They loved me. This meant they could make bad decisions for me with a clear conscience.

They didn't even talk tough. They were a mass of contradictions. They washed their clothing and they shaved and cooked and generally conducted themselves like well-behaved, well-educated [people]. Then they went out and blew up installations and killed total strangers and cracked bad jokes. [She] was getting used to it, but slowly.

"Is there a plan C?" .. "Nice thing about the alphabet, ma'am, is that it gives you plenty of plans to choose from."

Faith was devastating if you weren't up to being a god.

"I'm only a simple trained killer but something tells me never to eat in a restaurant with a bad pun over the door." .. "You haven't tried the foot yet. That'll leave no room for doubt."

A couple of unpleasant looking youths lounging on the corner of the walkway began ambling toward her, leering. Vau appeared around the corner the [rifle] raised in one hand. The youths fled. "And they say young people today have no intelligence."

"You think you know him and then he tries to start a war."

And oh, did I mention that Angelina Jolie is going to be Dagny Taggart in the movie adaptation of Atlas Shrugged? Yeah, blew my mind too. So did the idea of a network television show having a serial killer as a main character. But hey, Dexter does just that. And while I'm on the entertainment buzz, next year? SpiderMan3, PotC:At World's End, and Ocean's Thirteen targeting Al Pacino. SWOON.

Mmm, linkage. Girls are you this cool?

Hell, don't feel bad. I wish I was this cool myself. Explicably, every time I watch that, I think of alythe. Maybe it's the same girl even. Elite bra wearing rollerblading sexiness.

Enough for now. I'm supposed to be sleeping. But I figure I'll do that at work tonight. :P
