    I believe it reads, "Here, take my wallet, I didn't really need it..."

    Be thankful that at least they were considerate and gave you a Latin captha, Imagen if they used Kanji *shudder*

    They obviously tested it by making sure that no computer could possibly read it. Having passed that test, this was allowed.

    Not sure, but I think robots would find it easier to read.

    I figured out what that is reminding me of. It looks like sand art (of the bottle kind) that someone poked a stick through in the middle.

    I'm going to print that out and pin it on my shirt. No one will be allowed to talk to me unless they successfully supply the captcha. Now, I just need to figure out what it says so that I know if they're right or not...

     On the other hand, if they do successfully read the captcha, that might make me suspicious that they are, in fact, robots.

    Well at least it probably succeeds in the stated intent of "helping prevent the unfair use of automated programs". Likewise burning down your house is a good way of preventing anyone breaking into it.

     

    My best guess would be DDUTWW

    I don't know about that second "D", but it's probably six characters, and the last three are almost certainly "UWW".

    Here's my attempt at decoding it:

     

    Looks like DDMUWW. Although the final W seems to be missing it's fourth stroke (compare to the U where even though its 'up' stroke is partially obscured by the black lines, the area around the line is still darker than the general background).

    the real WTF is that you are supporting those money-grubbing anus eaters and not going straight to the outlet to buy the tickets and save yourself significant cash.  LAZY PROGRAMMERS!!!!
