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.

Right-wing extremist Milo Yiannopolous lands £200,000 book deal with Simon & Schuster; it should be boycotted

 

Despite being permanently banned from Twitter and mocked for a whole slay of ridiculous, offensive and extremist comments over the years, Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulous – born Milo Wagner – has surprisingly just secured a £203,000 ($250,000) book deal with Simon & Schuster.

 

Of the news, Yiannopolous told The Hollywood Reporter:

 

“They said banning me from Twitter would finish me off. Just as I predicted, the opposite has happened. I met with top execs at Simon & Schuster in the year and spent half an hour trying to shock them with lewd jokes and outrageous opinions. I thought they were going to have me escorted from the building – but instead they offered me a wheelbarrow full of money”.

 

“Did it hurt Madonna being banned from MTV in the 1990s? Did all that negative press hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election?”

 

“Every line of attack the forces of political correctness try on me fails pathetically. I’m more powerful, more influential and more fabulous than ever before, and this book is the moment Milo goes mainstream. Social justice warriors should be scared – very scared”.

 

Simon & Schuster should be ashamed of themselves. Yiannopolous, who continues to tour the US with his obnoxiously named The Dangerous Faggot speaking tour, is a thoroughly offensive individual. He regularly tells his critics that they “deserve to be harassed” and frankly, since he is just trying to become a younger version of the banned-from-Britain bore Michael Savage, his book deserves to be boycotted by rational people everywhere.
