WTF Does That Say?!




      Do you know what a CAPTCHA is? Whenever you want to create a new account on almost any given site or you want to leave a comment somewhere or you want to make a turn almost everywhere on the Internet, you have to decipher an image and enter the code hidden there. The picture looks something like this:


That’s a CAPTCHA. And I hate them. All of them.
      The acronym CAPTCHA stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart. Neat, right? Doesn’t help much, right? A Turing test was designed by a British computer scientist and all-round genius, Alan Turing, to test how clever computers are comparing to humans. His test comes in handy when you want to prevent internet robots or programmes to spam, gather information (such as email addresses) or do all sorts of mean, despicable things, a non-human entity shouldn’t do. How does it do that? A computer can generate a CAPTCHA test, but it can’t solve one. So a CAPTCHA is there to distinguish between a computer and a human being, artificial and genuine intelligence, and then prevent the fakers to roam wild in an otherwise safe and organized environment, as the Internet is. I know I should be happy and thankful for it, but I’m not.
      When you’ve entered the stupid code wrongly for the third time, you jokingly ask yourself: “Ok, am I a robot?” But when you very carefully type down the letters you think you see and they turn out to be false yet again for the seventh time, you can’t help yourself but genuinely start wondering: “Ok, am I a robot or am I just stupid?” CAPTCHAs don’t only check whether you are a mean programme or a real human being made of flesh and blood (who can also be mean, but nobody seems to care about that, at least CAPTCHAs don't), it’s not a matter of artificial or genuine intelligence – they question your intelligence period. And test your patience, they sure do mine.
      The damn things get on my nerves beyond believe. They haunt me in my dreams and I can’t seem to get away from them during the day either. Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart my ass! More like a Colossal Annoyance to Personally Torture Computers and Humans Alike - especially humans like me!
