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.

Video of the Week – The Spirit of the Daredevil

Video of teenager climbing New York’s tallest landmarks is a must watch

 

Justin Casquejo is a teenager who is utterly fearless. The 18-year old from Weehawken, New Jersey was sentenced to 30 days of community service, ordered to attend counselling and forced to write a 1,200 word essay in 2014 after climbing to the top of the 1,776 foot tall One World Trade Center building and now he’s at it again according to the New York Post.

 

In a series of photos and videos posted to Instagram and YouTube, he has recently broken into a series of buildings including 220 Central Park South and the Time Warner Center.

 

This video of his antics is not for the faint hearted, but it truly reveals the spirit of the daredevil is still alive and well.

  1. He was given community service the first time he was in court for doing it, probation the next time. He promised the judges he wouldn’t do it again but clearly can’t stop himself. The boy has problems.
    Sad if he dies during one of his stunts, a damn sight sadder if he injures/kills one of his rescuers.
