Loremizzle My Ippizle

"O tempora, o mores!" as I said some millennia ago. My original text about Good & Evil was crippled and devaluated to meaningless crap. And that made it a success: "Lorem ipsum" became the most used Latin text.

Nowadays, it seems only important how it looks, not what is inside it anymore. A hollow facade. How different from the moral values in our times! But even this was not fancy enough. You can now download a "Gangsta" version of "Lorem ipsum". Here are some lizzle pizzles of shizzle cool varianz:

  • Lorem ipsum dolizzle mofo crazy, consectetuer adipiscing elizzle. Nullam pizzle velizzle, rizzle volutpizzle, suscipit cool, dawg vizzle, arcu.
  • Lorem shut the shizzle up dolor pimpin' go to hizzle, phat adipiscing crazy. Nullam things fo shizzle, things volutpizzle, suscipizzle sheezy, gravida daahng dawg, arcu.
  • Lorem ipsizzle dolizzle crazy amizzle, consectetizzle adipiscing elizzle. Nullam break it down velit, shut the shizzle up volutpizzle,
  • My shizz ipsum dolizzle sizzle amizzle, consectetizzle fizzle elizzle.

Here are some more alternatives to "Lorem ipsum". In your own language and style. Modifying and shaping text to your own needs: that is essential for all open source. Whether you like the result or not: de gustibus non est disputandum.

Quite some time ago I wrote a nice text about Good & Evil. Things have not changed so very much over the ages: still you have good guys and bad guys (M/F), open source and closed source, idealists and opportunists.

Although I wrote that text with care, it was not always handled well. And so pieces and bits (sic!) ended up in what might be the best known Latin text of this modern era: "Lorem ipsum". See some more background of it's history in this Wikipedia article. Even within Joomla! you can easily use it. Unfortunately only as "filler text"; there is not much left from the original wisdom.

Some think that modern people are more clever than we were in the old days. But I tell you: we've seen it all. We commented on so called "new" things allready thousands of years ago! Like:

  • "Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi" (about ACL)
  • "Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur" (about SEO)

So, I hope you can still learn something from us, the antiques. Maybe you'll remember us when you choose Times New Roman or Palatino as your font. Or when you linger around on a Forum. I've done it too. And I also spent more time on debate than on writing code...
