Deletion talk for Mark Twain II[edit]

  • Vanity. His book hasn't been published yet. RickK 23:26, Nov 7, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Agree with RickK. Enochlau 23:33, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Vanity. And such vanity. "In his obscure days his hat was number six and a quarter; in these latter days he was not able to get his head into a barrel." —Mark Twain in Eruption. However, "There are no grades of vanity, there are only grades of ability in concealing it." —Mark Twain's Notebook. Denis Diderot II (talk) 00:08, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • So vain that I charitably want to believe it's a joke by an acquaintance of his. He's on Category:1979 births too -- please could whoever ends up deleting this remove him from there as well? (I'd do it myself now, but it feels like pre-empting the VfD process to remove it before the article goes.) Oh, and delete, of course. Pnot 07:51, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

"We Three Kings Of Orient Are"[edit]

(Copied from Wikipedia:Reference desk/Humanities)

What are the words to this carol?

See here. Filiocht | The kettle's on 15:48, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

  • One in a taxi, one in a car / one on a scooter, 'ooting 'is 'ooter / following yonder star. At least that's the way I used to sing it in school. --Bob Mellish 15:57, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and Fountain, Moor and Mountain
Following Yonder Star
Oh, Star of Wonder, Star of Light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Born a king on Bethlehem plain
Gold I bring to crown him again
King forever, ceasing never"
Over us all to reign
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity high
Prayer and praising; all men raising
Worship him, God on high
Myrrh is mine, its bitter purfume
Leads a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in a stone cold tomb
Glorious now, behold him, arise
King, and God, and sacrifice
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Earth to Heaven replies.

I was taught a slightly different version by my father:

We four Beatles of Liverpool are
John in a taxi, Paul in a car,
George on a scooter, beeping his hooter
Following Ringo Starr.

Another one to make the five year olds giggle:

We three kings of Leicester Square
Selling Knickers, tuppence a pair
They're fantastic, no elastic
Running around all bare

AJR | Talk 19:34, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

And then there's:

We three Kings of Orient are,
trying to smoke an exploding cigar.
It was loaded, it exploded ...

... BOOM! ...

Silent night, holy night ...

With reference to Daniel Brandt:

Brandt's chart was obviously a scare tactic to encourage the deletion. I'd like to see him sue for such petty things. "These meanies called me names on the internets and made me real sad :((" (User:EndAnonDiscrimination)

Removing garbage from front of JPEG file[edit]

Perl. More specifically perl -i.bak -0777 -pe 's/^.*?(.{6})(Exif|JFIF)/$1$2/s' Pict0002.jpg. I then found the number of bytes removed by comparing the size of the resulting file to the original. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 00:02, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
