Artificial Intelligence

I've heard that a blonde dying her hair brunette, is just a feeble attempt at artificial intelligence. I've never really thought that there was such a thing. That is until Word Verification came along. Have you ever noticed how they will put two V's together and you can't tell if it's VV or W. Same goes for a lot of combos. Seems like about 20% of the time I have to guess and I ALWAYS, always, guess wrong. When I do guess, I will have messed up 'zwwklmqazxq', or something like it. However, just like Ron Popiel, word verification says, "But Wait". I can see you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer, "I'll give you a second chance". What do you get the second time? Three widely spaced letters that spell...bob or chuck or joe.

LOL! You are right Cliff. It has happened to me! It's darned hard to make out those letters sometimes. I'm glad they give us a second chance.

You can get it on the second quess? Not bad - I have actually been kicked off after three or four bad quesses.

Well, Cliff I guess I'm not the brightest bunny in the forest either. Although, I do like learning new words. I've looked all over the internet - from Merriam Webster to the Oxford English Dictionary for several hours now. And I'm afraid I might be missing part of the meaning of your post??

What is the definition of "zwwklmqazxq"? Does it mean "you can a second chance" or "watch this guy, he'll NEVER get this"? Would you use it in a sentence. Thanx!

You're lucky Cliff, I've struck it several times the 2nd (and 3rd) try the words???? have been harder, no bob or joe for me I'm afraid.

Word Verification always gets the last laugh. It just God's will.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

this is why I got rid of mine...I had a hell of a time getting to comment on my own blog:-)

Just like typing class all over again, huh Cliff?

Carolyn said...

Yeah! I found you! Did you notice that Prarierose -- aka Carolyn's Comments fell off the face of the earth? Well, she didn't but her blog did. I fiddled with the template one time too many, and ended up having to do a reinstall, and starting over -- which meant I lose allll my links. I've been looking at other sidebars, looking for a familiar name that would send me back to your blog, and I finally found one!

I had just started getting to know Rachel as well, so I'm off to say hi to her as well. The new link to me is: http://www.myprairierose.com/PrairieView

Doesn't anybody realize that WordVerification is a four-letter word? I can't stand it--and it's not a requirement.

But I'm with you. If I can't figure something out, I just click "publish" and wait for the next train to come along.

Your magik werd tonight is "zhxhr."

I hope.
