The stan­dard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is repro­duced below for those inter­ested. Sec­tions 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bono­rum et Mal­o­rum” by Cicero are also repro­duced in their exact orig­i­nal form, accom­pa­nied by Eng­lish ver­sions from the 1914 trans­la­tion by H. Rackham.

Con­trary to pop­u­lar belief, Lorem Ipsum is not sim­ply ran­dom text. It has roots in a piece of clas­si­cal Latin lit­er­a­ture from 45 BC, mak­ing it over 2000 years old. Richard McClin­tock, a Latin pro­fes­sor at Hampden-​Sydney Col­lege in Vir­ginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, con­secte­tur, from a Lorem Ipsum pas­sage, and going through the cites of the word in clas­si­cal lit­er­a­ture, dis­cov­ered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sec­tions 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bono­rum et Mal­o­rum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, writ­ten in 45 BC. This book is a trea­tise on the the­ory of ethics, very pop­u­lar dur­ing the Renais­sance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in sec­tion 1.10.32.

Rackham.

There are many vari­a­tions of pas­sages of Lorem Ipsum avail­able, but the major­ity have suf­fered alter­ation in some form, by injected humour, or ran­domised words which don’t look even slightly believ­able. If you are going to use a pas­sage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t any­thing embar­rass­ing hid­den in the mid­dle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum gen­er­a­tors on the Inter­net tend to repeat pre­de­fined chunks as nec­es­sary, mak­ing this the first true gen­er­a­tor on the Inter­net. It uses a dic­tio­nary of over 200 Latin words, com­bined with a hand­ful of model sen­tence struc­tures, to gen­er­ate Lorem Ipsum which looks rea­son­able. The gen­er­ated Lorem Ipsum is there­fore always free from rep­e­ti­tion, injected humour, or non-​characteristic words etc.

    Today, I went to the beach­front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daugh­ter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a her­mit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is com­pletely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or some­thing. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the
    mes­sage home a lit­tle bit, but instead of that, this is fan­tas­tic blog.

    A great read. I’ll cer­tainly be back.
