Fun With Captcha


StickyDrama was recently sent some rather cute Captcha graphics.

There are 26 letters in the alphabet and 10 numbers, or 36 alphanumeric characters. However Captcha does not use all 36 characters; it uses only y, x, w, v, u, t, q, p, n, m, k, j, h, g, f, e, d, c, a, 7, 6, 4, and 3. That’s 23 characters.
Let us assume that each of the 4 characters in Stickam’s Captcha are chosen at random: The choice of one character in no way influences the choice of another. According to the branch of mathematics known as Combinatorics, there are 23x23x23x23, or 279841 potential combinations.
Hence the odds that WEED or TWAT would appear is about 1 out of 28000. In fact, the chance of any 4-letter word appearing is 1 out of 28000, assuming it contains only those 23 characters Captcha allows. So while FUCK and DAMN are possible (unless Captcha specifically removed them) SHIT and PISS are not.
1 out of 28000 are not bad odds, considering how many thousands of users are on Stickam. If any reader ever gets FUCK, please send the screencap to StickyDrama.


  1. Yes we received it but we’re confirming the authenticity. We want to ask Stickam whether they disallowed that word in their code.

  2. i actually do know someone who got fuck before at random… unfortunately the screen caps got lost when his computer died =/ sad day…

  3. I am wondering how much bandwidth is being used up by people refreshing continuously on a comment, message, friend request, or the sign up page for the FUCK captcha, just so their name can be promote on Stickydrama.com. Nice job Sticky, nice job. lol.

  4. ive had fuck before.
    i think i screencapped it, but my computer that i normally use JUST crashed. like.. ten minutes ago. 🙁
    stupid fuckin limewire.

  5. OMFG I SO GOTA FUCK ONE TIME!!!! I THOUGHT THAT STICKAM HAD GOTTENN HACKED WHEN I SEEN IT!!!AHHH I SHOULD HAVE CAPPED THAT SHIT!!!!i wish i could go back to that screen ..that shit was like..last month though.
