Test McTestFace

For all we know there could be a world behind our phones. All I know is, I certainly haven’t seen it yet. Have you?!

This is H. Rackham’s translation as printed in the Loeb Classical Library edition with underlining added for the translation of the text found in the example of the lorem ipsum[5]:

[32] But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. 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?

[33] On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse.

I am commenting from Twitter
I have comment options
Guest comment options didn’t seem to work
Nothing was deleted.
I will be creating random default avatars
I can’t see that my picture has been pulled from Twitter, I shall investigate.

Commenting via Twitter does not create a user registration which is probably why there are no avatar options appearing.

What is weird is that this comment is above the other older comment.

Commenting via Twitter DID create the local account but did NOT pull the avatar through. Might be overridden by my avatar plugin. DISABLING the plugin broke the avatars. Try again in different order.

Facebook overrode my avatar because it recognised my website, but I was using different emails. This must be due to the API.

New logo is better. Icon is still illegible. Try vectors.

Removed opacity fade from header banner.

Made 50 hexagon logos – redo for categories and random default avatars that recognise user email.

Mixedia title logo still in works. Where would it be used? Business cards?

I have updated the comments phrasing and some email notifications – more needed, make a list.
