Are they laughing at us?

  • I was just building up an interface in IB3 and I used the NSTextview.
    It comes with some Lorem Ipsum in there just to give it something.

    While I was moving things around, I noticed this:

    > ....Et harumd und lookum like Greek to me, dereud....

    I thought it was meant to be Latin ;-)

    When noting that one of my app's files had an unexpected icon, I read
    this:

    Made me chuckle, anyway :-)

    It is. It's from 'The Extremes of Good and Evil' by Cicero, written
    in 45 BC.

    From http://www.lipsum.com/:

    "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."

    Hmmm...

    I like the Corporate Ipsum <http://www.doubleforte.net/widgets/corporate/>
    generator.  Works great for powerpoint^Wkeynote slides before you get
    the real text to flesh it out.

    "Efficiently incubate global channels after client-focused alignments."

    I don't know. I think a lot of presentations to take that verbatim.

    "Seamlessly underwhelm holistic expertise ..."

      I swear this was my previous employer's business model.
