In the end the planet will be a dry wasteland, but by the time I'm an old man, we'll be able to launch a probe that sends information about humanity amongst the stars - just at the same time I reawaken safe and well to find myself captain of a starship again. Plus I'll have learned how to play the flute - bonus!

Who said anything about ordinary requests to Google to recall emails? Not me! I'm talking about the bank approaching the court and making a ludicrous request (after a ludicrous mistake). A bit of common sense could've been applied at least. Ultimately, they were idiots for sending out the email, but they compounded their mistake with another when making a stupid request to cancel an innocent person's email account. If it were me, I'd be livid.
