Other tests make you follow a moving finger or “walk a straight line” with your mouse cursor. If you pass, you’re automatically redirected to the service you were trying to log into. If you fail, you can take the test again a seemingly infinite number of times (at least 10, anyway). Or you can skip it and still get into your account. However, neither Webroot nor TY4NS is responsible for what you do there, so don’t come calling us to bail you out.
If you’re in a sharing mood, you can also tell the world why you’re not assiduously updating your Facebook status every 15 minutes:
Now one might rightly argue that allowing SMST to post “Your Name is too intoxicated to post right now” (especially if, like me, you were testing this at 9 in the morning) might actually be worse than anything you were going to say. So maybe it’s best to click “skip” when SMST asks if you want to post that. Of course, you might be drunk or stupid enough to say Yes.
Like I said, it happens.
ITworld TY4NS blogger Dan Tynan would like to apologize for anything stupid he has said while under the influence or otherwise on Facebook, email, Twitter, text messages, comments, or in person. Sadly it’s too late to apologize for his snarky humor site eSarcasm (Geek Humor Gone Wild). Follow him on Twitter: @tynan_on_tech.
