Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.


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.




Vapers’ testimonials

(Vaping was the)  *only* thing that got me off the cigs. Now almost 18 months without a cigarette and nicotine levels reduced to less than 2mg with a plan to reduce them to zero …

Scott Kane

Vaping has saved my life. I managed to quit smoking while patches, champix, hypnosis has not worked for me. Banning vaping or over regulating it is an ethical crime to humanity.

Mario Metaxas

Vaping saved my lungs and possibly my life. I am getting fitter, breathe better, taste and smell better. 100% win!

Yvonne P

Vaping is the only method that worked for me, and helped me finally get away from tobacco cigarettes. I was a 30 year plus, 2 package a day smoker prior to trying vaping as a safer alternative. 95% safer if not more as endorsed by the Royal College of Physicians in Great Britain.

Jackie Awrey

My husband was a heavy smoker prior to vaping. When he was introduced to vaping, he stopped smoking cigarettes and eventually, quit vaping too! It has been 4 years since his last cigarette and 3 years since he stopped vaping. I do not vape, but I believe that everyone has the right to a less harmful alternative to smoking.

Daphne King

I was a smoker for 41 years, tried lots of methods to stop, started using an e-cig in October 2015, have not smoked tobacco since then.

Jenny Sage

Smoked cigarettes for 16 years, been vaping for 2 months and I’ll never go back it’s saved my life.

Te Ara Popata

I stopped smoking immediately (cold turkey) and switched to vape. I believe that this is a healthier alternative since I smoked 2 packs of cigarettes every day.

Ara Tobias

Vaping has saved my life… i am more productive compared to when i was smoking… i have become a lot healthier than when i was smoking… vaping is the future, and the future is now.

Francky Nacks

I’ve not smoked a tobacco cigarette for over 7 and a half years. I am one of the MILLIONS of former tobacco users from around the world. WE have a right to know what is going to be discussed by the WHO about OUR future as NON-SMOKERS. We want no repeat of (a previous COP conference) …. where news reporters and public were forcibly removed from the convention.
