Would you be able to pass this test? CRAPCHA is an acronym for Completely Ridiculous And Phony Captcha that Hassles for Amusement. It is a parody of the annoying CAPTCHA codes that try to verify that you are not a bot. As the bots became more sophisticated, so did the CAPTCHAs, until some of them are impossible for humans to decipher. CRAPCHA takes this to the next level, with characters that are impossible to reproduce. You can embed the application on your website, if you really want to make readers angry. Like this:

I've seen some that use single, possibly OCR'ed word for the captcha. It couldn't have been the system that uses one known word, and one unknown word, as there was only a single word. But sometimes it seemed to grab things that were not words, like a cut offed equation one time (it didn't like the LaTeX version of the equation...) or non-Roman character based text. I suppose the trick to avoiding such problems might be to build a functional system that can handle such non-word captchas like these guy's captcha.

Often times there are two words in the captcha. One word is used for verification, the other taken from printed text to convert it to digital. Normally a computer would do this, but there are often words a computer cannot read. This is where you come in.

I don't like being tricked by google like that. Type the verification word and then type whatever you want for the other. You can normally tell the verification word by the font, it's always the same.
