You probably saw those many times... And you probably didn't know, but there are 2 words for a reason:
- One word is the one you must answer correctly (which is stored somewhere as the correct answer) and thus the one that checks whether you are an human or not
I always wondered how could I pass the captcha sometimes when I was 100% sure I did an error - well, as I said only one word will check whether you are an human or not. So what's the other word? they are fragments from old newspapers / books / radio shows , that OCR (Optical Character Recognition) cannot properly read. So, those fragments are cut and put here so the humans translate those instead of the machines which are not flawless, in order to digitalize old books. So, you are not actually as useless as you thought, and your life has a very small purpose, being used by others without you noticing
