Regrets, I’ve had a few

But then again, too few to mention.

The problem, of course, is someone else mentioning them.

Google says it has the solution:

When you enable Mail Goggles, it will check that you’re really sure you want to send that late night Friday email. And what better way to check than by making you solve a few simple math problems after you click send to verify you’re in the right state of mind?

By default, Mail Goggles is only active late night on the weekend as that is the time you’re most likely to need it. Once enabled, you can adjust when it’s active in the General settings.

What an odd cultural artifact.   But perhaps a speed bump for electronic text communications is not such a terrible idea.

Of course you ultimately have to be able to do math.  And, you know, if you could “do the math,” you wouldn’t really even be considering sending that email.
