    Great Captchas or worse even

    I just came across this site:
    http://www.johnmwillis.com/other/top-10-worst-captchas/

    I should say the Math one is worst among the list

    Hm. I like the math one. I think I might use that for any site I create that would require registration.

    Weed out the weak as it were. :P

    Considering that the math one is from http://random.irb.hr/signup.php, it's not made to exclude machines, it's made to exclude people who wouldn't have any use of their service.

    Number 5 is probably the worst thing I've seen in my life! The other ones I could work out but come on man!

    The answer to the math one is 0

    Try Eros.

    The best and simplest captchas are just simple questions that anyone can answer:

    What is 10+2?
    Which is bigger, a cow or an ant?
    In which European country is Paris? (OK, I accept that could be too hard for most Americans. )
