Let’s be a flower and fuck things up!

… wait, Norton recommends I NOT run this game. Norton doesn’t have enough data.
Man, what a shitty situation for indie devs to be in. Until enough people run the game without incident, Norton will regard it as suspicious. But until Norton stops regarding it as suspicious, I’m not gonna run it.
Sorry, mate. But I can at least take this one off the “Covered” list and the the randomizer come back around to it.
In it’s place, we’re gonna do….

“Shrink long texts to create shorter documents that are easier to memorize!”
Ah, it’s a summary tool! Dope. I tend to use more words than I ought to. Perhaps this will help me to trim my own excessive verbosity.
Let’s see what it has to say about a famous speech:
Four score&seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, new nation, conceived Liberty,&dedicated → proposition men created equal. Now we engaged great civil war, testing whether nation,/any nation so conceived&so dedicated, can long endure. We met on great battle-field war. We’ve come → dedicate portion field, final resting place for those who here gave their lives that nation might live. It’s altogether fitting&proper we should do this. But, larger sense, we cann’t dedicate — we cann’t consecrate — we cann’t hallow — this ground. Brave men, living&dead, who struggled here,’ve consecrated it, far above our poor power → add/detract. World’ll little note, nor long remember what we say here, but can never forget what they did here. It’s for us living, rather, → be dedicated here → unfinished work which they who fought here’ve thus far so nobly advanced. It’s rather for us → be here dedicated → great task remaining before us — from these honored dead we take increased devotion → cause for which they gave last full measure devotion — we here highly resolve these dead shall not’ve died vain — this nation, under God, shall’ve new birth freedom –&government people, people, for people, shalln’t perish from earth.
It DID reduce that text from 1475 characters to 1247, so that’s nice. But I’m not confident that represents an improvement.
But, let’s be fair; the original is a famously efficient piece of speechcraft by a legendary leader at the top of his game. Let’s see how it handles the random blatherings of some fool with a blog:
Wait, Norton recommends I NOT run this game. Norton doesn’t’ve enough data. Man, what shitty situation for indie devs → be in. Until enough people run game without incident, Norton’ll regard suspicious. But until Norton stops regarding suspicious, I’mn’t gonna run it. Sorry, mate. But I can at least take this one off “Covered” list&the randomizer come back around → it.
410 characters down to 372. That’s … not terribly impressive.
As a great man once said, people, people, for people, shalln’t perish from earth. But I’m kinda thinking perhaps this utility should.
With this next entry meet me on great battle-field war?
