Really. Is the word verification thing even necessary? Does it actually protect us from spammers or predators or assassins or whoever we're supposed to be protected from?
And who comes up with these words? I pray to God that they're computer generated, or else there are some sick people out there getting paid to come up with words that border on the lascivious and hygienically vulgar.
Out of my fascination with these words that I have to type without questioning their origin, I began to write some of them down. That’s when I realized what’s really going on here – it’s an alien language.
Don’t believe me? Behold the following sentence, taken directly from my last seven attempts to post a comment on fellow bloggers’ sites:
“Undinats nuballi vachesti. Dicatele ingdede consin, Eukzyman!”
I’m convinced the Eukzyman is their leader, and the aliens in my computer are trying to get a message to him that is of the utmost urgency. In fact, I’m going to Google Translator right now to see what I can make of it.
Hmm…interesting. I was able to loosely translate the message to mean:
“Check out this blogger. She is awesome, Eukzyman!”
O.K., so maybe I shouldn’t be so paranoid. These aliens are actually smart dudes.
