Ah, Google, where were you when I drunk emailed my ex topless photos last year in hopes of enticing him back?

As college has proven to me, I can still do basic math while blitzed, fail.

They`re not sticking their noses where it doesn`t belong. You have an option of turning the mail goggles on or off. AND you can choose what days and at what times this application would be in effect. I think it`s just so the people that are concerned about their drunk posting can ensure they don`t send anything that serious.

I thought Google always rocked for standing up to the Bush Administration and telling them to go f themselves when they asked for information. But, now I think Google is sort of sticking their nose where it don`t belong. We don`t need babysiters.

"i was thinking, what if you suck at math and dont drink?

You could never send an email ever again... "

On the other hand, what if you`re great at math but drink profusely?

I calculated my friend`s paycheck, down to the penny, based on his wages and hours, even taking out taxes, in my head, while drunk. I couldn`t stand up straight, much less walk a straight line.

I`m just very good at math. I`d still end up sending something like:

"HEY WHATS UP MAN I JUST WANTED2 SAY I LUV YOU AND MAN THIS NIGHT IS BADASS YOUR SO AWESOME MANNNN WE NEED TO CHILL...

AND MY BUTT ITCHES. K BYE"

Actually I think there is a cheaper way to do it with phones rather than carrying a breatholizer around with you. It`s like a service that barrs you from calling certain prechosen numbers until like 8am the next morning, just turn it on before going out :P

It wasn`t just me, Davy?

I think some people I know need to have this sort of technology applied to MANY aspects of their life.
