What In the WORLD?

In addition to their search engine, Google is constantly coming up with new and exciting bells and whistles programs. Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Health, Gmail just to name a few.

But their newest venture absolutely takes the cake! As I read about it in this article, my mouth actually fell open in disbelief. Seriously.

It's called Mail Goggles. Basically it's a part of Gmail that was designed to stop people from sending embarrassing e-mails while drunk by requiring you to do math problems. You choose a level of difficulty and must do 5 problems correctly in 60 seconds in order for the email to be sent during the weekend hours of 10pm and 4am.

Basically it's a breathalyzer for your email.

All I could think of while reading this article was........are you kidding me?

Is this what our world has come to? Is there really that much of a problem with people sending email when they are drunk? How do they even manage to type or simply run their computers while drunk?

Seriously? Mail Goggles? Good night nurse.
