What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
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.

How (not) to dine like Will and Kate

Vogue journalist Virginia van Zanten gets in a fluster over “how to dine like Will and Kate”

 

There’s journalism and then there’s tripe journalism. This week, Vogue published the latter when their columnist Virginia van Zanten shared her thoughts on “how to dine like Will and Kate” (as she so endearingly calls the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge).

 

How (not) to dine like Will and Kate
Anyone who imagines the heir to the throne and his wife hanging out at KX is plainly on acid

 

Patronising in a way only an American working for Anna Wintour could muster, the short feature is both inaccurate and ridiculous at the same time. It suggests the heir to the throne and his wife hang out at KX gym in Chelsea with the transplants from Monaco and offers the somewhat staid favourite of the moneyed classes from Essex, Mosimann’s, as another of their favourite dining places.

 

“Few openly praise their club, which would be embarrassingly keen”, muses van Zanten before stating that “the vegan Cobb salad (at KX, of course) is much more delicious than it has any right to be”. Weirdly, she then adds: “When you come through town, your club is a place to meet friends, have lunch, or sit undisturbed for hours on end, knitting that floor-length cape you never have time for”.

 

Van Zanten also finds space to mention how to pronounce KX (it’s “kicks”, of course). Someone, instead, should have just told her not to bother. They’d have done better if they’d just kicked her pointless article into touch.
