''Kolbrin'' text or texts[edit]

There appears to be significant interest in this text, whether it is a valid text or a fraudulent one. Via Google, there were over 100,000 hits when searching for Kolbrin, and over 17,000 hits when clicking on its Videos link. Searching on YouTube brought 11,800 results. One video in another language had 256K views in only 5 months ("LA BIBLIA DE KOLBRIN, el libro que cambia POR COMPLETO la historia de la humanidad", translated by Google Translate as "THE KOLBRIN BIBLE, the book that completely changes the history of humanity"). Whether it ought to be called a "bible" or not is one issue, which is why I suggest the article be called "Kolbrin text" or something better. I have made over 1,000 edits on Wikipedia in the past decade, but I don't have the wherewithal to create an article, and look to my betters to do justice to the topic, where others may have failed. See next.

Edit: There are at least three English "editions" out that purport to contain various texts, two of a printed title and one e-book version (Kindle). On Amazon.com it has star ratings for the 3 editions: 4.8./5 (Hardcover, 14 reviews), 4.5/5 (Paperback, 46 reviews), and 4.5/5 (Kindle, 36 reviews). It has a 4.1/5 star review on GoodReads. I also found a PDF, though I don't know where that came from. Skimming part of the PDF, I didn't get a sense of where these text came from, their provenance, or whether any actual texts of these still exist. Its explanation of the destruction of "old books" in the early 1900s and/or later made sense; such has happened even to incredibly important, famous, extant manuscripts.

Note that a RationalWiki article about the topic appears to be way out of date, missing these book versions which came out as early as 2016, and is of course a biased article. I believe Wikipedia can do better.

The books found so far – purporting to be of these texts – are as follows:

The Kolbrin Bible: 21st Century Master Edition by Janice Manning (Editor) Paperback, Abridged, 596 pages Published May 31st 2006 by Your Own World Books ISBN 1597720054. ISBN-13 9781597720052.

The Kolbrin Bible: 21st Century Master Edition by Janice Manning, Marshall Masters Kindle Edition, 596 pages Published May 31st 2006 by YOWBOOKS.COM ISBN-13 9781597720083.

The Kolbrin Bible: 21st Century Master Edition by Marshall Masters (Editor), Janice Manning (Editor) Hardcover, 620 pages Published August 1st 2013 by Your Own World Books (first published May 31st 2006) ISBN 1597721107. ISBN-13 9781597721103.

I am not suggesting an article be written about this book alone but about the texts themselves which article may wish to mention these editions.

I did not search further for academic writings about "The Kolbrin".

Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Faithless_elector_revolt_in_the_United_States_presidential_election,_2016[edit]

Article is hopelessly biased (with such terms as revolt, deprive), from the title down. A discussion about the role of the electoral college would be entirely at home in articles on the election, this article is solely there to make a WP:POINT. 82.33.230.34 (talk) 14:31, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Liu Gang incident[edit]

Briefly sparking, Liu Gang incident is about Liu Gang was a Chinese university student who is considered as having mental ill and was forced to be in mental hospital. The mental statue of him is disputed and enforced management is concerned. I find some news about it to make sure it meet Wikipedia standards. It's a ongoing event. Source:

Report above are source I think they are realible sources because most of them are state run media. Please someone check them and determin if this could be an Wikipedia article. Thank you. 2409:8930:FF78:E8AC:1392:8B1D:D0:13C5 (talk) 09:04, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

If any other sources are needed, please write it in this page. I can hardly keep NPOV when meeting article like this and I still can't write an proper Wikipedia article. Also, I'm concerned if this part will be deleted due to Mainstream policy or forbid to "comments protesting, challenging or questioning the validity, reliability, or existence of psychiatry". 2409:8930:FF78:E8AC:1392:8B1D:D0:13C5 (talk) 09:11, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Cake carriers[edit]

I am interested in the history of cake carriers. There are different forms and materials, such as aluminum, chrome, plastic. Locking and not locking. I have an aluminum carrier with a lever linkage system that engages three locks around the junction of top and base when one lever is moved to the lock position. When was this invented? Who invented it? What years was it made, and by which companies? Other metal locking cake carriers use a system that has several locks around the base, each of which is locked individually. Some look like hinged snapping closures, others are levers which engage a flange. Some lock by method of a wire bail (or two) which go over the top of the cover. No idea what category this would fall under. Cooking gear, somewhere?

thanks in advance -

Uphill, both ways[edit]

"We used to walk to school in the snow uphill, both ways" is a sarcastic expression that's at least 50 years old, used to make fun of people talking about the hardships of their childhood compared to modern day [27] [28]

Zapadoslavia[edit]

It is an what-if scenario, created by people on the Internet. Sometimes called 'West Slavia', Zapadoslavia is afederation of states, consisting of Czechoslovakia and also parts of the German Empire, mainly Silesia and Lusatia (however different versions exist, for example with Poland). Sometimes, there are different versions how the federation or union of Zapadoslavia would have been created, but most suggest because of multiple events happening differently in the Polish–Soviet War. There is so far no clear description of Zapadoslavia in a whole and it can get pretty confusing, but also the whole concept of this 'country' is really intriguing. So it would be nice to have some clarity. Thanks already in advance! Source:

Convection frying pan[edit]

Not a Wonder Pot. Seem to be quite a good alternative to using an oven especially if you are only cooking for one or two. The raised center in the middle is what they call a "convection cone". Presumably it's meant to emulate a convection oven. Mosto notable examples are Dry Cooker, Swiss Dry Fryer, Ultimate Dutch Oven. Setenzatsu.2 (talk) 01:01, 19 January 2020 (UTC)
