select * from t; -- but don't want virtual columns
This argument is nearly a FAQ in SQL, so there’s not much point rehashing it here.

Since finding the many places `select *` has been argued against is difficult due to the way search engines handle phrases and wildcards, I dug up a good discussion for you [here](https://stackoverflow.com/q/65512/142454). There’s a lot more on that topic if you want to do some more digging.
