Thou Shalt Not Fail The Captchas

Is that a b or is it a pregnant L? Do you see a 4 in there, or could it be a distorted A? Any human verification code you enter wrong can be used against you, and you'll get to do it all over again.
Don't stress in this mess, captchas are fun, as long as you're not trying to finish a registration process.

After having this blog for a couple of weeks, I expanded my horizons to captchas and help desk fun, because help desks are fun also!

Feel free to copy my posts, but please be kind and link to the originals.
Enjoy the captchas and help desk stories :)


What to answer..

Fun things to answer when a help desk asks the answer to the secret question on your account.

1) I already answered it when I signed up.

2) No idea. I'm trying to hack the account and I need the answer to the secret question so that I can change the password.

3) For security reasons and the safety of my account, I cannot tell you.

4) What do you need to know that for?

5) Oh the nerve! Next thing I know you'll be asking for my bank account number.

6) I'm trying to change my password, I'm not applying for a job at the secret service. Sheesh.

7) If I knew the answer, I wouldn't have contacted you.

8) I don't think I have an account with you, and if I do, it really shouldn't be such a big secret.

9) Curiosity killed the cat.

10) The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind...

Message for my entrecard droppers

Hey I haven't abandoned this godforsaken place, I've been extremely busy with work,  and no days off for a while. The half hour I spend dropping cards is a half hour I can sleep, haven't got even 6 hours sleep since the end of June when things got crazy busy. I expect work to return back to normal by the end of July and will be back to dropping daily then :)

The best one yet

I skipped this one, admitting defeat.


You gotta love 'em

Seen today..

I added WTF as a second word and it let me through, imagine that! I'll always wonder now... WTF was it really??


Captchas for clairvoyant people

Seen yesterday at the site where I sign in every day. This screen shot is not modified.


This just gets better and better

this is a true screen shot, I didn't alter it.
Just stand on your head I guess.. 


The captchas monster strikes again

.. I just saw this one a few minutes ago

Don't worry about being human, you now need to be superhuman.


Another Genius

Email: (see if this one bites)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am sorry to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I found your
listed in the Trade Centre Chambers of Commerce directory here in Japan, I
find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business of $40 Million
United States Dollars , I only pray at this time that your address is
still valid. I want to this solicit your attention to receive this  money
on my behalf. The purpose of my contacting you is because my status would
not permit me to do this alone. When you reply this message, I will send
you the full details and more information about myself and the funds.If
interested, please reply through my alternate Email

My reply:

Great, thanks for thinking of me. I've never met anyone from Japan. Do you guys have chipmunks over there?
I had to look up the word encroach, it sounds a bit sinful, especially with "into your privacy" right behind it, you know? It means "infringe upon", maybe we should start talking about copyright encroachment instead of infringement, it sounds much more exotic.
I didn't know I was listed in the Trade Centre Chambers of Commerce directory in Japan, how cool is that! Should I write a little bio to go with my listing?
Pray no more, your prayers have been heard, my address is still valid and I feel deeply honoured that you want to become my partner. Is that just a business partnership, or did you have something else in mind?
That's a lot of money.. 40 milliom dollars, but why do you want me to reply through your alternate email? You're not guilty of email spoofing, are you? Naww, only scammers do that.
I look forward to hearing from you and to get my hands on some of that 40 million dollars. Please reply through my alternate email which is
