Google is Shitty
I increasingly use Google Sheets in place of Microsoft Excel, not because I actually like Google Sheets, but because I’m still reeling from a hard drive crash I had a couple of years ago in which I lost a huge number of files. As much as I want to vomit every time some wanker starts yapping about “cloud computing,” I have to admit I do like having my important files stored or at least backed up in “the cloud.”
But you have to be very careful when using Google Sheets, because Google can’t fucking add. Open up a Google Sheet right now and do this:
- In cell A1, type a “1”
- In cell A2, insert the formula “=A1+.05”
- Drag the formula from A2 down the column to fully populate it.
Pretty simple, right? You end up with a column that goes: 1, 1.05, 1.10, 1.15, 1.20, etc. At least, that’s the way it goes to 37. After that, it goes to shit:
All it has to do is ADD! It’s ONE FUCKING formula! Let’s see … 3.7 + 0.05 is … ???
