Captcha is a word I run into often as a gateway step when logging into my computer. Usually, it’s some question like “Click on the photos showing a stoplight.”
I click the wrong boxes three or four times then they give me the option to identify photos with sidewalks. I get several of them wrong, too, and wonder if other people struggle with these simple tests as much as me.
The whole Captcha quiz conundrum needs to be reimagined. Rather than asking dimwitted questions about clicking on traffic objects, Captcha question makers should ask us more provocative and abstract questions like this:
“If you were crossing the street on the sidewalk in the picture shown, where would you be going and how long would it take you to get there?”
Cut and paste the six photos into a Word document. Then assemble them in reverse chronological order and in descending levels of importance. Once finished, photoshop a stoplight and crosswalk in every one of the six photo slots. Then save your file, email it to NGSCSports, and go to Mcdonald’s and order two Big Macs.
“Tell us how you feel about Siberia. Does it scare you? Do you not care about it? Your response must be less than 1,000 words.”
“In each of the photos, tell us what photographer took the photo. If you don’t know, just type in somebody’s name and we’ll accept it.”
This guy misses the point. You need to answer the question correctly to pass the login test. This question makes it easy to just type in someone’s name, making the purpose of the Captcha pointless.
“Instead of clicking on all the photos with a stoplight or crosswalk in them, tell us what you think about antidisestablishmentarianism in 10,000 words or less?”
“Look at these six old men. Can you spot the hypertensive ones? Are you older than all of them, some of them, or none of them? In the comments section tell us how much money you have in your pension plan.”
This blog is total nonsense. What drug is this guy on?
