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.

Not So Roomy

Small, single room in South Kensington to be sold for £150,000 at auction

 

A single room in South Kensington is to be auctioned for the staggering sum of £150,000 ($184,000, €172,000 or درهم675,000).

 

Curiously offered with a “reserve price not to exceed” that sum, the 205 square foot space is on the lower ground floor of 30 Queen’s Gate Gardens and held on a lease with 113 years remaining. It can be accessed from the main ground floor or entrance or via the lower ground floor entrance, has an external window and appears to have a rather large hole bashed in one of its walls.

 

Auctioneers Allsop will sell what could be one of the most expensive cupboards in London on 30th March at The Cumberland Hotel in Great Cumberland Place, W1H. The agents emphasise a key selling point in stating: “There is no liability towards the building’s insurance or service charge” with this property.

  1. Burn it to the ground!!!!!!!!! It is a dump!!!!!!!!!! Not worth 50 cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!! Someone’s having a laugh!!!!!!!!!!!! Jokers!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Alternatively make it a cell for Andrew Picard and Farouk Abdulhak!!!!!!!!! Their parents wouldn’t mind having to go to a Kensington address to visit their dirty runt kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chain them to the walls and administer rough justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. This is all very well, but it doesn’t appear to have any facility to either cook or, ahem, to deficate/urinate!…this being the case I’m not quite sure who this could be aimed at?

  4. If this is a single room, where does the hole in the wall. Looks like a previous tenant managed to escape. What a bloody joke, I must agree with Rod on this one, get that scum sucker Farouk chained to the wall, then bring in Rods wrecking ball, see how he likes to be buried under rubble as well.
