You won't believe how sweet this anti-hyperbole plugin is


Downworthy is a Chrome plugin that converts hyperbolic headlines from viral mills into sarcastic -- and much more realistic -- semantic equivalents. For example, the word "literally" is replaced with "figuratively"; while "go viral" is translated to "be overused so much that you'll silently pray for the sweet release of death to make it stop."

*
"Literally" becomes "Figuratively"
*
"Will Blow Your Mind" becomes "Might Perhaps Mildly Entertain You For a Moment"
*
"One Weird Trick" becomes "One Piece of Completely Anecdotal Horseshit"
*
"Go Viral" becomes "Be Overused So Much That You'll Silently Pray for the Sweet Release of Death to Make it Stop"
*
"Can't Even Handle" becomes "Can Totally Handle Without Any Significant Issue"
*
"Incredible" becomes "Painfully Ordinary"
*
"You Won't Believe" becomes "In All Likelihood, You'll Believe"
*
... and so on.
