reCAPTCHA: of-rage-and-love: hashtag-med-school: kaeebonrai: nunyabizni: intergalactic-dorks: intergalactic-dorks: Everytime you fill in CAPTCHA you're helping to digitalize old books and documents. Using CAPTCHA abt 250 books are added to a digital database everyday bittergoldilocks What bittergoldilocks Are you joking or for real Its called RECAPTCHA! The creator of CAPTCHA (Luis von Ahn) realised a lot of time was being wasted with CAPTCHA (worldwide we spend about 500,00o hours doing CAPTCHA every day) So he wanted to put it to good use The reason why CAPTCHA uses wonky letters is because computers can't read them, but we can! But when trying to automatically digitalise old books and documents this becomes a hindrance because computers often cant read the faded old letters. So the digitalising is done by humans (very costly and time consuming) Anyway Ahn found out about these a integraded into captcha creating RECAPTCHA. Everyday about 150 (sorry i meant 150 not 250) old books get digitalized this way. They are currently using it to digitalize the whole archive of The New York Times (since 1851) So we're all kinda building a digital library of alexandria this way by using captcha, noice https://techerunch.com/2007/09/16/recaptcha-using-captchas-to-digitize-books/ reCAPTCHA Founded 2007. Overview reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. reCAPTCHA improves the process of digitizing books by sending words that cannot be read by computers to the Web in the form of CAPTCHAS for humans to decipher. In case any of you thought this was BS I always love seeing reCAPTCHA being used. That's what my dad told me too. So when we fill out those wonky letters, we are basically helping the computer read weird handwriting. Look at these curvy letters! Much curvier than most letters, wouldn't you say? No robot could read these! reCAPTCHA

(this can be utterly exhausting, but try to get it done in a day, if you can. the end result is worth it.) pull out your notebook. it doesn't need 2. to be a new notebook, but preferably one that you don't usually write in, or that you haven't touched in a while. fuck moleskins. the yellow legal pad will work fine. sit in your room, or in the park, or in the library, and write a list. count clouds. describe all the colors that you see, and note patterns that arise. sketch the cracks in the walls. note the shape light makes when it enters a space. talk about what the air tastes like, smells like. what sounds are there? even the white nose, break that down: air planes, fans, cicadas, anything. remind yourself that you are sitting in the middle of a space brimming with detail. remind yourself that you are not in nothingness and emptiness. your world is fathomless. it has potential. 3. drink cold water and try to eat something that isn't processed. it does not need to be fancy. buy yourself an apple with the change between your couch cushions. eat it outside. if you're someone who walks, walk somewhere afterwards, just to stretch your legs. take your fucking meds. remember that its a good thing that you are inside your body. your body is a fantastic and endlessly intricate machine, and even though society has smacked a bunch of poisonous ideas on it, that doesn't change its inherent worth and splendor. take care of it. 4. read a novel. underline your favorite lines, and write phrases that twist your heart inside your chest on the back of your hand with an ink pen. read a novel like it's poetry. read poetry, something decadent but unpretentious. watch a movie you haven't seen before. if there are free art galleries near you, walk through one. take your time. let yourself bask. if there are patterns in what makes your soul ache, write those patterns down – marbles arches or soot crumbling bricks or dandelions or descriptions of dresses or whatever it is, write them down. 5. your chosen family is important. remember, they picked you as much as you picked them. the love has no obligation. it is given freely and it is given from a place of compassion. you are not a burden. if you need to breathe, take a minute by yourself and just exist, but remember to go back to your people. when they need you, listen and be gracious. always be gracious. the universe sometimes remembers things like that. 6. listen to new music. link jump on youtube or related artist jump on spotify or ask the chap beside you in the cafe what their favorite band is, and listen to that. listen to something that you don't usually listen to. we tend to tie up a lot of memory with music. we are falling in love again. the soundtrack needs to be specific to that. 7. allow yourself to indulge in romantics. press flowers in old books. play movies with subtitles and mouth the words. dance in your room. wear something that makes you feel good, even if you wouldn't wear it in public. write your chosen family letters, even if you hand deliver them. write poetry, even awful poetry. revel in its awfulness. eat dark chocolate and when your chosen family want to go out, try to go out with them sometimes, even if its just to the market.
