Google April Fools

(You might have to click this to see it better)

This is what I love about Google, the guys there really have a sense of humor. If you click on this "New Feature" it takes you here, a page that explains how you now have the Custom Time feature that allows you to send emails with an earlier date than the present, essentially sending emails back in time.

It "utilizes an e-flux capacitor" to achieve this, shows an example calculation, and includes testimonials explaining the pros and cons of the feature. Make sure you read it all, (even the fine print at the bottom) it's hilarious.

Google admits they're pulling your leg when you click on any of the links on the bottom:
Terms - Privacy Policy - Program Policies

Thanks to Nigzich for alerting me to this.

Haha! That's the best. I love how they have gmail user comments and links to wikipedia on the "Grandfather Paradox".
