Now that I`ve finished this video, I no longer want to kill this man. Captcha may be evil, but this guy is my new favourite villain.

I will be able to ReN!igger in another language!

No. Not at all. :/ You learn for free while they translate the entire web for free. You`re not paying them anything except for your time, which you need to use anyway in order to learn a new language.

@mindle--facepalm

Captchas-sites would require you to do them, regardless. This way your time is being used productively, instead of wasted.

DuoLingo-You`re getting a language education FOR FREE, while your effort is used to translate texts.

@Mindle: Perhaps you didn`t watch the video or perhaps you don`t know english and need duolinguo, but you are performing a service while simultaneously receiving a service. You ARE getting paid in other words, except the amounts are equal, so they end up evening out.

@Mindle You get Education for free. And if it`s true that what he siad, that the results are exactly as good as conventional online translation classes, it has the benefit of
*not costing anything, therefor bein accessable to poor people
*you doing something good, which gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling in your tummy

TEDTalks really are the best.

Skip to 8:55 for the new stuff (just captcha and recaptcha stuff before then).
