Mail Goggles

THIS is awesome. Why didn't they have this in when I was in High School so that I wouldn't send those embarrassing 'I have a crush on you" emails? Of course, they'd also have needed one for notes passed in class......

The only problem? Some of my math-impaired friends would never be able to send ANYTHING.

Now if only they'd embed a "Snopes" applet that would automatically run any maudlin or alarmist emails through snopes.com and alert the sender if they were being taken in.

Email: "Forward this to all your friends, right now! The Internet is going to start charging you a dollar every time you click the back button on your browser!!!!!"

Google: "This message has been determined to be a hoax. Send anyway?"
