GoogleMail To Prevent Drunk Mailing

Google's corporate motto has always been "Don't be evil," but today they're going above that calling toward the truly good and preventing an epidemic that has be-deviled our nation since at least 1997. I'm talking, of course, about drunk emailing.

The problem of sending messages while under the influence is a common problem, but until now, no workable solution has been employed to keep you from going on a bender and sending an email to that girl you had a crush on in fifth grade. But Google has done it.

Mail Goggles is active late at night on weekends, and prompts you to answer math questions before you dash off that email to your boss. It also asks "Do you really want to send this?"

A good start, but we won't be truly satisfied that this drunken email scourge is solved until all computers come with a mandatory Breathalyzer.

Let me throw it open to our commenters: What was the dumbest email you ever sent, and would Mail Goggles have prevented it?
