This is going to be a completely off-topic post, but I felt it had to be blogged about.
So there I was, innocently sharing a link on Facebook when..
BLAM! I was faced with this. Whatever, I've filled out tons of captcha's before, right? But wait, what the heck is that in the second "word"? n→∞? Was I seeing it wrong? I was going to hit "try different words" but then a colleague made it a thing by challenging me to successfully enter it. So as you can see, after a quick romp through the ol' character map and a google search for alt codes, I managed to pull it off.. although sans subscript. But!
It actually took it. It actually wanted me to enter n→∞. Seriously? They expect the average Facebook user to take the time out of their day to figure that out? Anyway, I figured it was wacky enough to warrant sharing. :)
Has anyone else ever seen anything particularly odd in a captcha? Feel free to share in a comment. :)
