I remember a message board from a few years ago where some guy had talked about taking a screen shot of a captcha and displaying it on his free porn site making it look like it was really from his site. The person looking at the porn site would type in the captcha answer and his script would in turn use this user provided solution to solve the real captcha on the original site letting his script get past the captchas and spam the message board. So if it really did work he got 1000's of captchas solved by humans for free.
avajcovec points out a brief note on Collider.com that Comedy Central has ordered 13 new episodes of Futurama. Quoting: "Though still technically a rumor at this point, word is that 'Futurama' production offices have already opened and that casting is about to move forward. This should be a welcome surprise to fans of the show who have already gone through the series' cancellation and resurrection as direct-to-DVD movies."
If there was no Internet people would still have pirated software. I remember playing pirated video games on my Commadore 64.
