Can you translate this for me? I have no idea what language it's in?

Can you translate this for me? I have no idea what language it's in? Topic: Writing letter layout
June 17, 2019 / By Paula
Question: This appears in my High School's yearbook, and I just want to know what it says. "Loren ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euiismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea" It wouldn't suprise me if quite a few words are spelled incorrectly. My $75 yearbook that I bought for High school has simple words like "Definition" spelled incorrectly, like "Definitioin". I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my yearbook, and start writing letters to my school and have others write to my school, in hopes of a refund because there's quite a lot wrong with it. Such as- 60+ members of my senior class aren't included. No picture, no name under the "not pictured" category, nothing.

It's standard filler text, based on a passage in Latin by Cicero, and adjusted to fit English word and sentence length. So when you're designing a page layout and don't have the wording yet, you fill the text area with this "Lorem ipsum" to see what the page will look like. The whole thing means something like: Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure? PS: Re Additional Details. It sounds as if whoever compiled it made a mess of the job; this lorem ipsum text is only meant to be temporary filler, pending putting the real text in.

please do not pay attention to these types of responses- it is phonetic french, so hanging it right into a translator is not going to paintings. té method "tu es" (in spoken french, you agreement, like how in english "you're" turns into "you are" reasonable = faire touché = toucher so with that is brain, it could honestly learn "tu es bon pour pas te faire toucher dans Land of the Dead," which I consider could imply both what Joseph A mentioned, or "you are well for now not letting your self get crushed/touched/hit in Land of the Dead"

Evalyn Originally Answered: I am teaching nouns (person, place, thing, or idea). But how do I explain the definition of 'thing' and 'idea?
By definition, a "thing" is as follows: a material object without life or consciousness; an inanimate object. 2. some entity, object, or creature that is not or cannot be specifically designated or precisely described: The stick had a brass thing on it. 3. anything that is or may become an object of thought: things of the spirit. 4. things, matters; affairs: Things are going well now. 5. a fact, circumstance, or state of affairs: It is a curious thing. 6. an action, deed, event, or performance: to do great things; His death was a horrible thing. 7. a particular, respect, or detail: perfect in all things. 8. aim; objective: The thing is to reach this line with the ball. 9. an article of clothing: I don't have a thing to wear. 10. things, a. implements, utensils, or other articles for service: I'll wash the breakfast things. b. personal possessions or belongings: Pack your things and go! 11. a task; chore: I've got a lot of things to do today. 12. a living being or creature: His baby's a cute little thing. 13. a thought or statement: I have just one thing to say to you. 14. Informal. a peculiar attitude or feeling, either positive or negative, toward something; mental quirk: She has a thing about cats. 15. something signified or represented, as distinguished from a word, symbol, or idea representing it. So you see - a "thing" can be alive or inanimate. It can also be an entity, so "math class" is a thing too. An idea is defined as follows: any conception existing in the mind as a result of mental understanding, awareness, or activity. 2. a thought, conception, or notion: That is an excellent idea. 3. an impression: He gave me a general idea of how he plans to run the department. 4. an opinion, view, or belief: His ideas on raising children are certainly strange. 5. a plan of action; an intention: the idea of becoming an engineer. 6. a groundless supposition; fantasy. 7. Philosophy. a. a concept developed by the mind. b. a conception of what is desirable or ought to be; ideal. c. (initial capital letter) Platonism. Also called form. an archetype or pattern of which the individual objects in any natural class are imperfect copies and from which they derive their being. An idea is not tangible but more a concept. "Love" is an idea.
