Deletion talk for Mark Twain II[edit]

Retrieved 8 November 2004:

  • 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)
  • Delete: When first a man's fancy gets astride his reason and common sense is kicked out of doors, the first convert he makes is himself. Jonathan Swift II 03:38, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete vanity. - Vague Rant 05:28, Nov 8, 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?

  • 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
Chorus:
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
Chorus
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity high
Prayer and praising; all men raising
Worship him, God on high
Chorus
Myrrh is mine, its bitter purfume
Leads a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in a stone cold tomb
Chorus
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 ...

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)
