In the world of computer programs, what is a CAPTCHA?

A program used to verify that data is being entered by a human, not a computer robot or another automated program. Generally seen at the end of a fill-in online form, it typically asks the user to decipher a series of visually distorted numbers and letters. CAPTCHA is an acronym for completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart. The Turing test, named for British scientist Alan Turing, is used to evaluate the intelligence level of machines.

    Thanks. I also think it's sad that more people are interested in a rock star than a former actor and president.

A woman was at the department store, paying for her purchase. As she searched for her wallet, the cashier noticed a large TV remote in her purse.
“Oh, do you always carry your TV remote with you?” the cashier asked.
“No,” the woman replied, “but my husband refused to come shopping with me, so I figured this was the worst thing I could legally do to get back at him.”

At a sports memorabilia convention in 1984, a man purchased a 1951 Minneapolis Millers jersey (#28) for $50. He thought it was a fun relic of the long-defunct local minor-league baseball team. Then he found out who had worn it: Willie Mays. He could even verify it belonged to Mays because he found a picture of Mays wearing it. He took the item to Antiques Roadshow, where the jersey’s value was estimated at $80,000.

A police officer pulled over a man he suspected of driving drunk. He asked the driver to blow into a Breathalyzer to test his alcohol level, but the man refused, claiming he had asthma and blowing into the tube would cause him to have an attack.
“Fine,” said the cop, “come down to the station and I’ll give you a urine test.”
Again the man said no, saying he had diabetes and urinating would cause his blood sugar to fall to a dangerous level.
“Okay,” the cop said, “why don’t you get out of the car and walk down the white line for me?”
“I’m sorry,” the man said, “but I can’t do that, either.”
“Why not?” the cop asked, exasperated.
“Oh, because I’m drunk,” answered the driver.

TV DINNERS

On a 2009 episode of the Nickelodeon kids’ sitcom iCarly, Spencer (Jerry Trainor) had no idea what to make for dinner for his family. So he invented spaghetti tacos, hard taco shells filled with noodles and marinara sauce. After that episode aired, the food became a cultural phenomenon both in the world of the show (the main characters make a popular Internet show) and in real life. In one episode, characters oversee a spaghetti-taco-making contest on a cable show, and in the real world, spaghetti tacos were the most-requested food item at American school cafeterias in 2010. “Spaghetti tacos make it possible to eat spaghetti in your car,” Syracuse University pop-culture professor Robert Thompson told The New York Times. “It’s a very important technological development.”
