I took a year of commercial graphic arts at 'that' school. Using Lorem Ipsum felt too much like cheating, so I usually wrote my own body copy. I got a few raised eyebrows and one tilted head, so I figure I won.  Cool

+1!

I always used to use Lovecraft's opening to The Dunwich Horror:

Quote
When a traveller in north central Massachusetts takes the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury pike just beyond Dean’s Corners he comes upon a lonely and curious country. The ground gets higher, and the brier-bordered stone walls press closer and closer against the ruts of the dusty, curving road. The trees of the frequent forest belts seem too large, and the wild weeds, brambles, and grasses attain a luxuriance not often found in settled regions. At the same time the planted fields appear singularly few and barren; while the sparsely scattered houses wear a surprisingly uniform aspect of age, squalor, and dilapidation. Without knowing why, one hesitates to ask directions from the gnarled, solitary figures spied now and then on crumbling doorsteps or on the sloping, rock-strewn meadows. Those figures are so silent and furtive that one feels somehow confronted by forbidden things, with which it would be better to have nothing to do. When a rise in the road brings the mountains in view above the deep woods, the feeling of strange uneasiness is increased. The summits are too rounded and symmetrical to give a sense of comfort and naturalness, and sometimes the sky silhouettes with especial clearness the queer circles of tall stone pillars with which most of them are crowned.

Gorges and ravines of problematical depth intersect the way, and the crude wooden bridges always seem of dubious safety. When the road dips again there are stretches of marshland that one instinctively dislikes, and indeed almost fears at evening when unseen whippoorwills chatter and the fireflies come out in abnormal profusion to dance to the raucous, creepily insistent rhythms of stridently piping bull-frogs. The thin, shining line of the Miskatonic’s upper reaches has an oddly serpent-like suggestion as it winds close to the feet of the domed hills among which it rises.

As the hills draw nearer, one heeds their wooded sides more than their stone-crowned tops. Those sides loom up so darkly and precipitously that one wishes they would keep their distance, but there is no road by which to escape them. Across a covered bridge one sees a small village huddled between the stream and the vertical slope of Round Mountain, and wonders at the cluster of rotting gambrel roofs bespeaking an earlier architectural period than that of the neighbouring region. It is not reassuring to see, on a closer glance, that most of the houses are deserted and falling to ruin, and that the broken-steepled church now harbours the one slovenly mercantile establishment of the hamlet. One dreads to trust the tenebrous tunnel of the bridge, yet there is no way to avoid it. Once across, it is hard to prevent the impression of a faint, malign odour about the village street, as of the massed mould and decay of centuries. It is always a relief to get clear of the place, and to follow the narrow road around the base of the hills and across the level country beyond till it rejoins the Aylesbury pike.

Afterwards one sometimes learns that one has been through Dunwich.

Guys at my high school did that in '87 or so.  Same stupid rule.  Guys could wear shorts year-round after that.

Does anyone here ever do any programming on their phone? I don't have a smartphone, but I do have an Android tablet. Shown below with an external keyboard/cover running QPython.

All the Evidence that Time Travel is Happening All Around Us

An interesting article, but you wouldn't need a grandfather paradox in order prevent you from traveling into the past. Probably if you found evidence for or thought of something with a probability of it happening, the past would be changed and the probabilities in the present would be in flux until it didn't happen. So the only way you could invent time travel into the past would be such that you couldn't change it. For any other way, just existing in the past would disrupt the process through the butterfly effect. The only way to avoid this would be that you came into existence uncaused outside of time. Do you know of anyone like that? Probably one of those things man was never meant to know, but we can never be certain about that.
