Most of us are guilty of the occasional “drunk dial,” but now Google has introduced a way to prevent “drunk e-mails!”

The new feature is called Mail Goggles, and it is designed to prevent you from sending potentially embarrassing drunken e-mails by requiring you to answer math problems.  You can set the difficulty level for the math problems, but unfortunately, if a user gets the problem wrong, it will allow him or her to answer it multiple times in order to get it right.

You can read about one writer’s personal experience with Mail Goggles at time.com.
