Mraqualyn, crystormer, moodship, joypruns; are just a few of the gems that pop-up in the word verification box on web sites. Who is the person hired to come up with these words? It amazes me that someone is out there making a salary off of developing odd-ball words. Sometimes I think that these free sites like Gmail (seen above) force us to type in dumb shit as payment to use their free product:
“Ha! Xavier, lets make them type in poowhistle in order to sign-up.”
On sites like Google, after you get it wrong a few times they have the balls to put a picture of a cripple next to the entry field (seen above). I was already mentally crippled after failing to copy English letters. My confidence did not need the image of a disabled person linking me to the audio version of the word. And what do people in wheelchairs have to do with the audio version? Hey Google, a little presumptuous, no? I figure people in wheel chairs would clean house in this event. They sit down all day, and I am assuming they spend a lot of time registering for various web sites. That’s how I would spend my time. They probably have like a .985 batting average when it comes to the word verification box.
On registration pages, after you type in the magic word, you are then forced to power scroll through a sixty page agreement and click ‘accept’. Imagine if as soon as you click ‘accept’, a nude version Dennis Nedry’s screen saver in Jurassic Park locked up your screen permanently. “Ah Ah Ah. You didn’t say the magic word!” You would be like, “Hold On, can I go back, what the fuck did I just accept here?”
