Funny CAPTCHA

Posted in Evil, facebook, funny, hilarious, internet, Laugh, US with tags , , , , , , , on December 28, 2007 by urdamned

Your first question would be what the hell is CAPTCHA or CHACHACHA or whatever it is???

A CAPTCHA (IPA: /’kæpt??/) is a type of challenge-response test used in computing to determine whether the user is human. “CAPTCHA” is a contrived acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”, trademarked by Carnegie Mellon University. The process involves one computer (a server) asking a user to complete a simple test which the computer is able to generate and grade, but not able to solve on its own. Because computers are unable to solve the CAPTCHA, any user entering a correct solution is presumed to be human.

The term CAPTCHA was coined in 2000 by Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Nicholas J. Hopper (all of Carnegie Mellon University), and John Langford (then of IBM). A common type of CAPTCHA requires that the user type the letters of a distorted image, sometimes with the addition of an obscured sequence of letters or digits that appears on the screen.

Ok, now coming to the real point. You may have seen lots and lots of CAPTCHA images but I am pretty sure you would never have seen such a funny one. Check this one from facebook:

Youtube was a great idea, streaming music and videos online. Then came many other startups that had a concept similar to Youtube, but tweaked a little bit here and there. But how about a website that would stream loads of stuff about Shoes. Yes, you read it right, Shoes!!  There is this new startup called ShoeTube which is actually going to do that. They are going to stream stuff on shoes. Only shoes, nothing else.

This is what they say on their site about the amazing concept that shoetube is:

Get ready for the most exciting thing to happen to shoes since Carrie found those coveted Manolo Blahniks in the closet at Vogue. Shoetube.tv will be the destination on the web where women will gather to share their passion for shoes.

We’ll feature a mix of broadcast-quality programming, user-generated videos/photos, and sponsor-created content. You’ll also find articles on what’s going on in the footwear industry, professionally-penned blogs and tons of community features that give every woman who is crazy about shoes a place to express their inner “soles.”

Shoetube.tv will be a bustling community by and for shoe fanatics! Are you ready to Shoetube?

Now that is what you call a crazy idea. Crazy because, the whole idea of ShoeTube seems wierd to me. Can you imagine, shoetube????? What next?? SockTube??

And by the way they are launching February 2008.

Shoe fetish anyone???

Merry Chrismas to all of you.

Christmas is and has always been a time of togetherness and fun. Let the good times begin.

Well I just put in on my wishlist which went straight to Santa,  you can do the same and comment more often. 🙂

How to shut a guy on ORKUT

Posted in brazil, cartoon, comedy, EL original, Evil, funny, hilarious, india, internet, Laugh, original, orkut, Smart with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2007 by urdamned

Orkut undoubtedly is one of the best things to have happened to the internet. I mean it is one of the places where I have made great friends and met up a lot of my old buddies. But again where there is light there is darkness, where there is good there is bad. Orkut too has its “bad” things. One of the most noticable ones being those unstopping “frandship” and “loveship” messages. Ask any girl who has been on orkut for long enough, and she would tell you how many of such messages/scraps she has received. It can be so irritating that some people I know have actually left orkut because of this.

That brings us to the topic, how exactly to shut the guy who is sending you such painful scraps and using those tortureous pick up lines lifted straight out of a hollywood movie. (There is even a community dedicated to these pick up lines on orkut, you can check it out here). Orkut has done a good job now by introducing some much needed privacy settings like hiding your pictures and hiding your scraps on orkut or controlling who scraps you, but the best way I think is to do what this girl had done to this wannabe fraand. Check out the screenshot and most of you girls would love to do the same:

orkut guy

Personally I have never seen a better reply to a friendship message than this. what say people???

Amazing Dialogues

Posted in comedy, EL original, india, internet, Laugh, movie, original with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2007 by urdamned

Indian film industry is the biggest in the world and has given the world some of its best actors/actresses and movies. Telugu film industry is one of the bigger subdivisions within the Indian film industry, based at Hyderabad in the Indian State of Andhra Pradesh.

Like every Indian film industry the Telugu film industry too has it own charms. Yes, they have had their share of great actors & movies and funny dance sequences, but I am not writing this article about that. Neither am I going to talk about the greatness of the industry or how the actors are glorified. This post is about dialogues in movies. South Indian movies are very popular for the punchlines or really mindblowing dialogues which the hero of the film cracks before he beats the shit out of the villans or the sidekicks. Here is a small collection of such amazing (or amazingly funny) dialogues from one such movie.

The movie in focus is called “okka magadu” and features “Balakrishna” as the hero (see pic).

gultiSome of the movie dialogues in English:

  1. You can study and get any certificates. But you cannot get your DEATH certificate.
  2. You may have AIRTEL or BSNL connection but when you sneeze you’ll say HUTCH.
  3. You can become an ENGINEER if u study in engineering college. You cannot become a PRESIDENT if you study in Presidency College
  4. You can expect a BUS from a BUS stop but you can’t expect a FULL from FULL stop.
  5. A mechanical engineer can become a MECHANIC but a software engineer cannot become a SOFTWARE.
  6. You can find TEA in teacup. But cannot find WORLD in world cup.
  7. You can find KEY in Keyboard but you cannot find MOTHER in motherboard.

Amazing arent they, all power packed??? Just imagine them being delived to some unsuspecting sidekick on screen 😛 Though I seriously doubt if he really says these lines in the movie.

Pope Pic Goof

Posted in dumb, funny on December 11, 2007 by enblithe

The pastor of a parish in Padua, Italy is running a Christmas campaign on the importance of forgiving people. Unfortunately, he mistakenly used a doctored photograph of John Paul II in which the late pontiff’s head had been replaced by that of former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.The priest decided that for his weekly bulletin the famous image of Pope John Paul II forgiving his attempted assassin Ali Agca would be the ”most eloquent illustration of our theme”, according to ANSA news.

He discovered the modified photo in an internet search and put it into the bulletin thinking it was the original image. He did not notice that the Pope’s face had been replaced by the smiling head of Berlusconi.

In the altered photograph, Ali Agca was also wearing a t-shirt with the slogan “Kill the Enthusiasm.”

”It was an unforgivable error,” the apologetic priest told parishioners.
