Lorem Ipsum

November 6, 2012 § Leave a comment


For those who don’t know, Lorem Ipsum is filler text that is used when creating a design for a website or similar. Most people assume it’s nonsense, but if you’ve ever studied Latin you can pick out words here and there. Taken in its complete form, Lorem Ipsum is actually derived from The Extremes of Good and Evil by Cicero, which was written in 45 AD. It’s been used as dummy text in typesetting since the 1500s. Here’s a great extract from the unscrambled version:

“Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit…”

“There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain…”
