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.

Picture of the Week – Resisting Trump

Donald Trump forced to face resistance

 

Yesterday, Donald Trump was finally confronted by an unavoidable message of resistance when seven Greenpeace protestors scaled a crane near the White House and unfurled a 70-foot by 35-foot banner reading: “RESIST”.

 

Greenpeace spokesman Travis Nichols told NBC: “The group is calling for resistance to President Donald Trump and his agenda. It is a continuation of protests that began with Trump’s inauguration”.

 

Meanwhile, elsewhere, in spite having won and been inaugurated, Mr Trump bizarrely continued to moan about electoral fraud on Twitter. He referenced “those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time)”, focused on “building the wall” and then claimed he’d be “sending in the Feds” to Chicago if “it doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on”. Plainly, a man with a focused set of priorities.

  1. For goodness sakes!!!!!!!!!!!!! Donald Trump is MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!! How could anyone resist such a wonderful prospect?????? Lock ’em up……….. No!!!!!!!!!!!! Waterboard them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!

  2. @Claire…all over the news in NY…
    Oh Rodders, in the nicest possible way, do shut up. If you want to do something useful with your life, give us all a break, contact Gillian Trott and expend your energies looking for Madeleine McCann. If waterboarding aka torture is introduced into Britain, then it’ll be a damn sight easier to find out what happened to the wee soul. Nerrmean?

    1. Oh I do love that Margaret. However maybe the US should waterboard all those people now trapped in airports to find out if they are terrorists or not, people like the Glasgow University vet and their own residents who happen to have dual passports. Trump starts to show his stupidity and begins to offend other countries.
