Sassy Spell Check

"Did you mean to say..."

Type "I've never been given the chance to succeed because nobody likes my hair cut." and SassySpellCheck changes it to "I've been given plenty of chances to succeed but blame stupid stuff like this ridiculous, "rebellious" haircut on my inability to get a job where a measure of conservatism in image is a pre- requisite."

The great part would be when you're writing something and that red line appears, like... "Oh crap, here it comes."

I think the youth of today would benifit from this a lot more than a spell checker that just tells them when they've misspelled "existential".

Best part of all is when you try to change it and it keeps coming back with corrections until you knock off that whining and get your shit straight.

       This would be great for struggling writers. You could open a new document, type "The" and the SassySpellCheck would just churn out a 40,000 word thesis ready for submission.

       ([pocmloc] You can do that already with predictive text on phones - e.g. (on an iPhone) create a new text message, type "The" and then keep choosing the middle of the three suggested words above the keyboard.)

       Similarly, the Oldth of today could be provided with linguistic assistance such that whenever they type this kind of shit, it's replaced with something like   

       "I too have gone through this exact phase, but time and world-weariness have eroded my ability to empathise with anyone to such an extent that I prefer erecting arbitrary barriers to embracing life and all its necessary imperfection.
I have found that limiting my experience and tolerance of others, works in the short term as a temporary distraction from my own self-loathing.
This inevitably happens to us all, so revel in your youth, little one - your time in the sun will soon pass. "

       //This inevitably happens to us all, so revel in your youth, little one - your time in the sun will soon pass.// That was probably the worst 3rd birthday ever.
