Turing Test FAIL

On Facebook today I was the lucky recipient of this captcha:

illegible captcha

Now, I freely admit I suck at deciphering captchas. I’ve failed them on a number of occasions. But that first “word”?

Come. On.

  1. That is a Captcha from Recaptcha. Recaptcha always gives you two words to type in, one of which is a real captcha, the other is from a Scanned book. You only have to get the real captcha right.

    The idea is to use Captchas to get people to help do OCR on books.

    Clearly, the first word is from a poorly scanned book.
