Okay. I've fallen victim to yet another elusive "captcha," and I only have myself to blame.
Taking a break from the TEF exam cram jam session, I decided to spend a few minutes checking out the website Failbook.com, a site where people submit the inadvertently hilarious comments that their Facebooking friends have made. I eventually came across a post that made me guffaw and thought that it was worthy to place it on Facebook itself.
Lo and behold, when I attempted to share the link on my wall, the little sentinel that resembles a mock gibberish English popped out.
To be granted permission to share certain links, one must surpass the Captcha trial by deciphering the mock English and entering every character in the exact order. I thought that would be a simple affair. After all, the first letter is a "J," right? And the second one is an "A."
Or is that actually a "Q?"
Huh. Funny how that third character is capitalized. And that kinda looks like an "S" as well. In fact, it almost looks like there are two "Ss," really.
J Q A S 5
Hey, wait a minute...how would I sound this out?
No. It can't be. Facebook wouldn't be so evil as to call me a jack-ass! That second letter is clearly an "A."
And so it was.
