Harry Potter Glasses

It’s impossible to picture Harry Potter in your head without his trademark glasses. You’re thinking of Danielle Radcliffe if you think you can and Daniel Radcliffe is not Harry Potter. There’s a difference. Anyway, those circular specs are a huge part of Harry Potter’s image. It makes him seem more relatable and less like a powerful wizard. But that got me to thinking that those glasses are proof that he’s not that great of a wizard. I mean Hermione used magic to change her teeth. We know that they can regrow and mend broken bones with Skele-Gro. You’re telling me there’s not a spell to cure astigmatism? They don’t have magical contacts? Somebody ask J.K. Rowling for me if you get the chance. Thanks.

Spell Check

Spell check is a program that checks your spelling. It’s both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because you can use it to find mistakes and correct them. It’s a curse because it makes people dumber. Why would anybody learn the correct way to spell a word if they don’t have to? People are lazy and spell check is proof of that. I’m not going to lie, I use spell check all the time. But I also know the difference between there, their, and they’re. I use spell check as a tool, not as a crutch. I don’t need spell check, but some people rely on it. You still need to have a grasp of the English language in order to use spell check effectively.  Spell check isn’t perfect. It makes mistakes all the time, especially with its and it’s. You need to check what the spell check is checking to see if everything checks out.
