Top 5 most difficult Captchas

This post has been incited by an actual Captcha verification received this week by my good friend, Cyril Chaib. This is what he was faced with when trying to enter a site to prove that he was a human:

Clearly the site needed to ensure that only blurry eyed, Russian speaking humans could access their site, and Cyril unfortunately did not possess the required language or motor skills to gain access.

So it made me think, what are the most difficult Captchas that people have faced  – Here is my top 5!

#5

You seriously deserve access to this site just based on sheer persistence. I don’t have a degree in espionage decoding!

#4

Just don’t know what the computer was thinking here – doesn’t even give you a fighting chance.

#3

I think the computer was having a laugh with this one – Makes #4 look easy!

#2

Has some distant alien language become acceptable as part of Captcha’s verification system – what the hell ?

#1

Come on, Captcha, not the dreaded advanced maths – give us a chance!

    the answer of #1 is 0

  • Cyril says:

    What’s that I hear about my motor skills ?

    Now that I installed the Extended Vulcan Keyboard, filling out Captchas is much more accessible.

    If you can’t do it, get your ??????? checked.

  • I love these. They’d be perfect for Ticketmaster – no more ticket touts buying up an entire concert in 3 seconds… only true fans would have the persistence to run the captcha gauntlet!
