So if you’re writing a mail late on a Friday night, when you may not be as sober as you would like yourself to be, you can get Gmail to ask you a few math problems before the message leave your Gmail outbox.

You can enable this via the “Labs” tab on the Gmail “Settings” page. By default, the Mail Goggles feature of Gmail become active late night on the weekend, but you can set it to other times as well from Settings – > General.
