It is NOT smart to alienate your readers, sir. Your premise is fallacious and the rest of your argument fails in consequence. What is smart is helping others understand stuff.

But u kn do wt u wnt, mn.

Amergin's Call To Ireland

I request the land of Ireland (to come forth)
coursed is the wild sea
wild the crying mountains
crying the generous woods
generous in showers (rain/waterfalls)
showers lakes and vast pools
vast pools hosts of well-springs
well-springs of tribes in assembly
assembly of kings of Tara
Tara host of tribes
tribes of the sons of Mil
Mil of boats and ships
ships come to Ireland
Ireland high terribly blue
an incantation on the (same) wind
(which was the) wind empty of Bres
Bres of an empty cup
Ireland be mighty
Ermon at the beginning
Ir, Eber, requested
(now it is) I (who) request the land of Ireland!

Rapaire:

If you must speak gibberish and then make other people feel small because they don't follow your meaning, at least abide by the Twitter Style Guide. It's the least one could expect from a gentleman... well, do it anyway.

Am gáeth tar na bhfarraige
Am tuile os chinn maighe
Am dord na daíthbhe
Am damh seacht mbeann
Am drúchtín rotuí ó ngréin
Am an fráich torc
Am seabhac a néad i n-aill
Am ard filidheachta
Am álaine bhláithibh
Am an t-eo fis
Cía an crann agus an theine ag tuitim faire
Cía an dhíamhairina cloch neamh shnaidhite
Am an ríáin gach uile choirceoige
Am an theine far gach uile chnoic
Am an scíath far gach uile chinn
Am an sleagh catha
Am nómá tonnag sírthintaghaív Am úagh gach uile dhóich dhíamaíní
Cía fios aige conara na gréine agus linn na éisce
Cía tionól na rinn aige, ceangladh na farraige,
cor i n-eagar na harda, na haibhne, na túatha.

Thanks. ;-) I got the idea at song circle on Tuesday. Richard sings that song, and he's under the impression that the first verse goes...

"Eight hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
By a line that he drew with his sword when the battle was nigh
And him that would fight to the death cross over
But him that would live better fly
And over that line came a hundred and seventy nine..."

I told him, "Richard, it's a hundred and eighty, not eight hundred and eighty."

He said, "No, it's 880. That's how Donovan sings it."

"No, he doesn't!"

"Yes he does!"

And so on.... ;-) Well, we never resolved it. Richard will just go on singing "880 were challenged" on the first line, I guess...but it gave me the idea for stretching the whole thing just a tad farther...now we've got 85,000 "challenged" Texans, and I find that concept pretty amusing.

We was thirty-two-eight by the taffrail log
The last words that log did say.
For just as we read her the ship was pooped
And that log was carried away.
And we desperately ran up sixteen more
While we reckoned an Ell-Oh-Pee
For we was as lost as has ever been
In that wild and murky sea.

Now Hawk he stood a manly watch
Until he lost his steel
But the minute Still relieved his helm
He lost contact with what's real.
He swore he was safe on a Scottish trawler
Tied up in Aberdeen.
And we sighed, 'cuz this was the worst damn case
Of nerves we'd ever seen.

So we sent old Hawk to his bunk below
Wrapped up in a burlap wrap.
And he babbled on about Mither Ships
And similar unreal crap.
But the rest of us faced into that blow
Blowing sixty knots toward day;
And we clamped on the lifelines, and braced and prayed
For the thirty three of Kay.

LH, I...I...I couldn't have written it better myself. Excuse me, for the tears of rememberance are streaming down my face for you see, I was there. There was one more than Travis, Crockett, and Bowie, and that was me. I was young then and I saw what happened. It's haunted me for years and now you've set it to song.

Thank you.

Ahem! I have just penned a new epic, based on that song about the Alamo that the Kingston Trio and Donovan both did covers of way back when.

It is a little known fact that the garrison of the Alamo numbered about 85,000 Texians, most of whom were huddling in terror behind the walls as a Mexican army of about 1500 approached under command of the flamboyant and vainglorious dictator, Santa Ana, the self-proclaimed "Napoleon of the West". Fortunately for the Texians, there were three men of real grit in the garrison who were in a position of command, and who might be counted upon to stir some herioc passions in the breasts of their chicken-hearted comrades. There were also a pig and a goose who proved absolutely vital to the defence of the fort, and that part has been suppressed in the popular mythology that later arose around the battle. At any rate, the Mexican army (soon reinforced to about 2400 men) was blissfully unaware that it had surrounded a garrison of approximately 35 times its own strenght in numbers. Had the Mexicans known this, they would have fled. They were under the impression, though, that there were less than 200 poorly armed men defending the fort, so they prepared a siege and bombarded the place for 12 days while the 85,000 Texians hunkered down, prayed, wept, swore, and wrote desperate letters to their wives and sweethearts.

By the 12th day Travis had realized that reinforcements were not forthcoming and that little time was left before the shit would hit the fan. He summoned the entire garrison to parade in the open square and gave them a dramatic choice! Our song begins....

The Battle of the Alamo - 1836

85,000 were challenged by Travis to die
By a line that he drew with his sword when the battle was nigh
And him that would fight to the death cross over
But the others had better vamoose!
And over that line came three men, a pig, and a goose!

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

'Twas Travis and Bowie and Crockett who dared to remain
And the pig and the goose crossed over the line unashamed
But 84,998 Texans were lacking in grit
The sight of the Mexican Army had caused them to shit

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're fleeing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, when we're far from the Alamo!

So 84,000 came pouring out over the walls
While another 600 tried to hide in the urinal stalls
Fifty men ran for the pigpen, twenty-eight jumped in the well
320 were trampled to death when they fell

And the 84,000 came pouring out over the walls
When the Mexicans saw that mob coming, they were plainly appalled
They threw down their rifles, abandoned their cannons
And frantically fled from the field
As the goose honked in joy and the pig triumphantly squealed:

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

88,000 men scattered like shot from a gun
The Texans and Mexicans showed the world how they could run
They ran for the rivers, they ran for the hills, they dug holes and hid in the dirt
Santa Ana lost both of his boots, his hat, and his shirt

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

"We've won," cried out Travis, in wonder, "and the glory's all mine!"
"Like hell!" growled Jim Bowie, "I outrank you, and you ain't worth a dime!"
Then up stepped bold Davie Crockett, his rifle held firm in his hand
Said, "If there's to be one lone survivor here, I am that man!"

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

Jim Bowie was found with a bayonet stuck in his chest
While Travis lay dead with a bullet hole right through his breast
And poor Davie Crockett lay cold as a sprocket, the Bowie knife deep in his heart
While the goose and the pig danced a jig on the bloody ramparts!

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

Santa Ana was ruined, he had to go back in disgrace
He'd lost half of his army, but worse than that, he'd lost face
The pig and the goose caught a train to Ohio where they got a good job at the zoo
And the Alamo stands as the proof that this story is true!

Hey?up! Santa Ana, we're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know, and remember the Alamo!

The storm raged on in the blackened night
The seas and the wind were wild.
Rapaire he swore 'twas the worst damn storm
He'd seen since he was child.

And have the crew were pale with fright
And half were green with motion,
As we pitched and rolled in that bitter cold
Through the mad and heaving ocean.

The timbers groaned and the planks they creaked
And the glass, it kept sinking down.
And we wondered if we were still alive
When seven-ninety came around.

And Ed curled up in the rope's end for'd
And wished he was in some bar,
For all he could hear was the screaming gale
MIdst the smell of hemp and tar.

She plunged uphill and galloped down
And she corkscrewed left and right.
And we prayed for an end to that endless sound,
ANd a glimpse of the dawning light.

But there was no end, and there was no dawn
ANd the storm never died away;
ANd through the night we just hammered on,
Dreaming of thirty-three kay.

Here I come in an got this PM mean mouthin' me as this bigass bullshitter and never stickin' my head in this joint (cough) and the PM has this very retarded video of some very retarded puppets singin' about pot??? Like what's that all about???

I mean, ya'll know that I only come 'round this joint (cough) 'bout every 10 thousand posts 'er so and see if I can hit the big zeros but they rigged... Amos has some kinda ball game there and has it rigged so that only he can get the zeros...

(And you thought the puppets were retarded, Boberdz???)

So, I stick my head in here and it's 'bout the same as lst time and the time after that and after that one, too... Meanwhile, there's an all night "I Love Lucy" thing on Channel 397 fir those of you who get satilite TV but ya'll rather sit around with a bunch of stoned out puppets??? And you, LH, outta be ashamed of yerself... You could be out meditatin' on rocks and important stuff but no... You got hang out with the rest of these retards and these wacked out puppets??? Like what is that all about??? What, youy can't get Channel 397??? No, maybe you don't like Lucy??? That it??? Come on... Out with it... The truth will set you free... Heck, you got the hots fir Sarah Palin and even make up stories about havin' her cell phone but then a real hottie is on all night on Channel 397 and you and yer sidekick, Amos, hanging with the cotton an' button stoners...

Plus, their weed ain't even all that great... All that coughin' they're doing ain't 'cause it's good... It's 'cause someone came in an ' stole the bud and left the stems and seeds... So here ya'll are... Sittin' round smokin' stems 'n seeds with Howdy Doody and Clarabell and missing Lucy??? What is that all about??? Oh yeah, I know... You're just tryin' to get to 40K so I'll have somethin' to do with my life fir a day 'er two tryin' to hit the biggie... Well, forget it... I done hit the biggie allready... Me and the Wes Ginny Slide Rule turned this thread backwards... Ha!!! Don't mess with Texas... Next thing ya' know Khany Kandu will be back and Jimmy Carter will be president and it will be all ya'll's fault...

(Thems wouldn't be all that bad, Boberdz...)

Well, even a blind squirrel finds a nut now an' then... Okay, other than those tow possible positive outcomes of mounds of bullshit the rest of it don't compare to Lucy and Ethel...

Opps... Commercial is over...

See ya'll in the funny papers 'er when ya'll get that BS up into the high 39's... Know what I mean??? Good... We really don't have to have this talk again fir a while, do we???

BTW, Happy Columbus Day and don't forget...

Bobert has posted here on MOAB several times. Make a game of seeing if you can find them.

As for converting number in base 34 to base 10, it's quite simple. You could probably even do it, but it DOES involve mathematics and I don't want you to get a headache. Just know that I take a number in base 34 (say, the number AMOS) and convert it to decimal (419,316) just as you'd convert any number from one base to another.
