Just FYI... ;-)

You're running bash in rxvt (I personally do reccommend doing so, unless you
have a very specific reason not to, e.g. running a number of DOS/Windows
console programs).

 1 - Use your middle mouse button. (inserts all of it)
     (note: Disable Mouse support, if you use nano)
 2 - Hit the insert key (inserts first line, prerequisite below)

$ grep paste .inputrc
"\M-[2~": paste-from-clipboard # Insert first line of (Win) clip

$ man readline	# tells more about possibilities.
$ man bash		# as does this

$ man rxvt		# also tells more...
