This is a question The Onosecond

Wired magazine once defined the 'onosecond' as the time between hitting 'send' and realising that you really didn't mean to send that to your granny.

What inappropriate email/text/photo have you sent to wrong people? Are they speaking to you any more?

Not relative
I discovered a few years ago that as Outlook allows white type, I could write certain paragraphs viz: 'Hi Barry, can you send me next week's portfolios? And you are a cock-muncher', as the white background hides the bit you've white-font'ed. Call it 'Russian email roulette', if that is your wont.

Imagine my surprise when during a bout of group emailing, one friend found our little secret by accident, joining in to reply 'Ooh, this is exciting, kind of like the Matrix.'

He was right. It was a netherworld.

It doesn't work if someone's not on outlook as *all* your text is converted to a bog-standard black font.

Wish I could relate a funny story about that though.

Apologies for lack of foreplay.
