Is there anything that makes you feel dumber than failing the word verification test when you’re trying to leave a comment? All you have to do is copy 5 or 6 random letters. How hard could that possibly be right? Apparently plenty hard judging by how often I screw it up. It’s not my fault! The letters look all wavy and you can’t tell if it’s a lower case j or i. It’s virtually impossible to tell the difference between two V’s or a W. That just isn’t fair! And nothing is as embarrassing as failing the word verification test when you’re trying to leave a comment on your own blog. That’s like having trouble trying to unlock your own front door. You realize you’ve hit rock bottom when the Blogger word verification system takes pity on you and gives you a no-brainer like “dog” for your word verification. At that point you are literally being mocked by a machine. They say that computers can’t think, but I believe that heard mine laugh at me once. If this keeps up I’m afraid that my high speed internet connection will be revoked and I’ll have to go back to dial-up. That’s like riding the short bus to the internet. Go ahead, leave comments at your own peril. My computer and I will be laughing our asses off.
