The letter sequences that appear for ‘word verification’ are bizarre and unpronounceable – until you practise. I’m sure I’m not the only one to have thought of this but I decided to make a note of the ‘words’ I was asked to copy. So, since yesterday I have written down some of the sequences I tapped in. In alphabetical order they are:-
aftera arlegra balenes colonic comalkin diterai faire gongle hypteda inesswei micklik pinesti resmul rhaciter sates snons thufa tisin tomakin
Now, what to do with them? I wrote some doggerel.
Aftera the balenes
Faire gongle inesswei
Arlegra to thufa
Snons tisin diterai
Hypteda in resmul
Sates thufa tomakin
Colonic for micklik
What would you do with them? I'm sure I'm not the only person ever to have considered using them as more than verification – and incidentally, why is the symbol that of a wheelchair user? Is it perhaps a subtle, snide comment on the efforts of us lesser mortals?
