Google’s Mail Goggles

I’m sure you’ve all heard of “beer goggles” but here comes something really cool and really necessary for a few folks. (I used to need this but since I don’t really even drink an occasional adult beverage anymore, it doesn’t apply to me.)

If you have Google Mail or GMail, this option can be turned on inside of your preference settings. It’s under “Labs.”


The idea is that before you are allowed to send an email, you must first answer a few math questions. Obviously, if you’ve had too much to drink you will not be able to answer them and can avoid sending an email that you possibly shouldn’t.

Here’s Tekzilla’s Patrick Norton explaining the feature.
