"I Calls Em Like I Sees Em!"

God I Love Google

So Google is at it again & boy am I excited for this one! We all know how awful it is to do the drunk dial, send the drunk text or drunk email right? Well, it turns out that Google is well aware of the issue as well and they are taking control. Google’s Gmail will be adding a feature to help prevent drunk emailing. The feature, aptly named “mail goggles” will need to be activated by the user and once it is you will be required to answer 5 math questions in 1 minute in order to send your email. This feature will be activated late nights and weekends since that is the most likely time that people are wasted. Don’t worry if you aren’t good at math, you can adjust your settings so that the questions aren’t too hard but are hard enough that if you are wasted you won’t be able to answer 5 in one minute. Gmail engineer Jon Perlow had this to say about the new feature "Hopefully, Mail Goggles will prevent many of you out there from sending messages you wish you hadn't." Amen to that!

Now Jon, do you think you might be able to meet with Verizon to help prevent me from sending drunk texts?
