We already told you about the app that deletes your work if you dare to stop typing. If that wasn't hardcore enough for you, how about a web app that deletes your work if you get pissed off?

On the one hand, it seems like a gimmick, right? Can you smile while you type? Can you rub your belly and pat your head? Can you eat a chocolate donut on the toilet? (Very difficult to do those two things simultaneously, trust me on this one.)
