The "whatever's on your mind" thread

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

  • Problem with CAPTCHA is that most bots can circumvent it by delegating the CAPTCHA to a real person.
  • How about something like this?

    There is also Question & Answer Verification (https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/humanverify_questionverify)

    or how about using the http://www.stopforumspam.com/ bot database?

    or even Captcha2 http://captcha2.com/

    that still requires manual input for creation of the account, which means that each and every account would have been deliberately created by the user. If that user is trying to spam dozens of forums with perhaps multiple accounts per forum, that still requires a lot of human interaction. I think it more likely that some bots have updated their software to overcome CAPTCHA.
  • I've got a good idea for a CAPTCHA: Play all of CODENAME:Iceman. If you can beat it, you get forum access.
  • Video Game Blankets!

    Alas, a little too expensive for my taste.
  • So I'm sure you guys remember my copy of Monkey Island 2, complete with everything but the code wheel.

    Well, now that I've gotten it signed by Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, and Dave Grossman...

    ...I decided I was tired of it being incomplete. So I bought some grommets on the way out of work today and took matters into my own hands.

    I think I might've overtightened the grommet a little (I was trying to be careful, but it still doesn't move as freely as I'd like), and I didn't really get the hang of cleanly cutting out the windows until the end, so I might have to do it over again.
  • Damn. Presidential debate was exhausting.
  • I really don't think I could ever top this LP of a Silent Hill game. (By the creators of Christopher Walkenthroughs)

    Ignore the opening. After Dark: Silent Hill 2
  • The delegation from the moon protests the closing of the X Thread. It appeals to the United Nations to reinstate it or, upon rejection of that, allow the Y Thread to live in peace.
  • I think I'm probably the only person here who decided to go and watch the Avengers again instead of the presidential debate.

    I have no regrets.

    Political debates :-(. When I want to hear some childish personal attacks and pledges that'll never be kept I go over to see my goddaughter and her siblings argue over their Peppa Pig scooters, at least they're funny whilst at it.
