CAPTCHA: Just to prove you are a mathematician

I’ve ranted before about impossible CAPTCHAs. This one takes the cake pi.

It’s gotta be a joke, and a good one a that. :-D

Hat tip: Baekdal.

    That’s like the billboards some years ago telling you to go to *.com, where * = the first 10 consecutive digits of e that were prime. That webpage gave you another math problem, and if you solved it you were invited to submit your resume to Google Labs.

    NPR has a 2004 story on Google’s billboard.

    There have been bus stop benches here in the Portland area advertising education with equations on them, but I think they’re designed to look hard rather than be something readily solvable to a simple number.
