The famous "Lorem ipsum" is a real text with meaning.

It's written by Cicero 45 BCE in the book Finibus Bonorum et Malorum. Section 1.10.32 and 1.10.33

- unsurprisingly someone messed it up after 500 year of copy pasting it

- so the text changed into mumbo jumbo. It happened in the 1500s.

- Since then there's been no more mistakes, except a lot.

@JohanEmpa is there a translation of the real text available?
