Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).


Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.



Vaping has quickly gone from something not too many people know about to one of the most popular trends across the country. If you’ve been considering vaping for a while and don’t know where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. An online vape shop is usually the best place to start since you’ll find the best disposables, vape juice, and even a complete e-cigarette starter kit. But how do you know what you need? This beginner’s guide will help you understand the type of vaper you are and what vaping products are best for you.


There’s a lot of misinformation on the internet, so it’s important to understand exactly what vaping is. Simply put, vaping is defined as inhaling and exhaling a vapor produced by a vape pen, electronic cigarette, or other comparable devices. It’s a more modern version of smoking cigarettes that uses vape juice in an electronic device rather than tobacco and a cigarette lighter.


You might already know the risks of smoking cigarettes, but it’s valuable to get a refresher so you can understand the differences in vaping. When you smoke a cigarette, you burn tobacco that delivers nicotine into the body. There are numerous illnesses associated with smoking cigarettes because of the 4,000+ chemicals and hundreds of toxins included in them. Some of the most dangerous chemicals in cigarettes include nicotine, ammonia, tar, arsenic, and formaldehyde.

Now when you consider vaping, it’s not completely safe and healthy, but it is much safer than smoking cigarettes. The vape juice sold at most vape shops includes four simple ingredients:

  • Nicotine
  • Vegetable glycerin (VG)
  • Propylene glycol (PG)
  • Flavoring

Compare this to the 4,000+ chemicals in a cigarette and it’s easy to see why vaping is much safer. And the great thing about nicotine in a vape pen is you can adjust the amount you want to inhale, which is not possible with a cigarette.


Most vapers fall into two different categories: those who want to vape for fun and those who want to vape to quit smoking cigarettes. You will also want to think about how you’ll use your vape pen. Do you want to simply take a couple of puffs from it to help you get through the day or do you want to sit in a cloud of smoke with your friends at social gatherings? Once you understand this aspect you can visit an online vape shop to see which vape pen is right for you.


If you want to produce a lot of smoke when vaping, then you’ll want a powerful direct-to-lung device with low resistance and high wattage. There are a lot of different choices available when looking for the best disposables. So when you look at an online vape shop, it might be best to begin with an e-cigarette starter kit. As the name implies, these kits contain everything you’ll need to get started except the vape juice, which we will discuss later.

Many beginner vapers will choose the best disposables they can find because they are simple, inexpensive, and easily accessible. You don’t have to have a wide range of knowledge to operate a disposable vape pen. With disposables, simply throw them away when the battery dies. Some of them come with rechargeable batteries as well if you choose to go that route. Selecting disposable vape pens is a great place to start on your journey to vaping since you can experiment without breaking the bank.


Vape juice can seem complicated, but it’s not as intimidating as it looks. There are only four chemicals as mentioned above. When looking at the ingredients, the higher the VG, the thicker the vapor will be. The higher the PG, the more flavor the vape juice will have.

Another main option to consider is the nicotine content. If you want to vape recreationally, then you can choose a vape juice with little or no nicotine content. Or if you’re trying to quit smoking, then choose a higher level of nicotine with the intention of decreasing it over time. The online vape shop you visit should have these ingredients clearly posted on the website to shop for the perfect vape juice for you.


Shopping for vape juice online is simple and you have plenty of selections to choose from. Once you figure out what VG and PG levels you want, you can narrow your options down to the flavors available. This will require some experimenting to discover the ones you like the most. Vaping is an experience you should enjoy, especially when you understand how much safer vape pens are than cigarettes.
