Re: The Ruby Soundtrack

For us here in the U.S., our national anthem starts out with the words
“Oh say, can you C”. There’s not a lot that can top that.

Ha!

In the translation of the Brazilian anthem on wikipedia:

Brazil, let the star-spangled banner thou showest forth
^^^^^
In the Belarus anthem (in one translation):

Gently sowing forth dreams, gold-adornéd;

Awaken and forth into great spaces, bring

Send messengers forth, send unto the world’s bound,

O young Bielarus, come thou forth, take thy place

In the Tibetan anthem:

The Play Oceans enlivened benevolent activities Of the
widely-nurturing Protector who retains the Teaching and
the migrators’ gem, Expand forth.

(I like the gem part!)

Forth is the choice of nations!

Actually, that’s not such bad forth syntax. Maybe they speak forth in
Belarus.

Sheesh … my paternal grandparents came from what is now Belarus,
though I have no idea who owned it when they left. So now I know why I
like Forth so much – it’s in my blood! :slight_smile:

Curiously enough, though, my father’s nickname was “Ruby” among some of
those relatives. I have no explanation for why I like Lisp, however. :slight_smile:

Someone ask Why and the Thirsty Cups to do it! :smiley:

If you go by the whole lyrics thing you’ve gotta remember Monty
Python. And Perl [sic] Jam. + all the old Jazz songs with Java in
them.

I vote we find some weird nerd/musician hybrid and we make our own
Ruby theme song! Either that or get enough money together to make the
Kaiser Cheifs change their song before it gets released in March. We
couldn’t have a Ruby theme tune without praisin blocks.

Other languages will just sit around “learning” at their confrences,
while at RubyConf we can start each presentation with the anthem,
schoolboy style.

Ok, am I getting a little too excited about this?
