Genius!


So Daddy 1 (a.k.a. 'The German Mathematician') was telling us the other night of some new gmail feature he'd heard of that apparently will censor all late night emails by requiring you to answer five math questions before your email is sent. The idea being that if you are inebriated you won't be able to do it, which ultimately protects you from later embarrassment and regret. Turns out he was right! Once you activate it, you can set which days of the week and hours you'd like to be filtered, as well as the difficulty of the math questions. Seriously awesome.

Now if only they could do the same with texts...
