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.

Ok this is pretty cool.

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
