Captcha faucets

The captcha faucets almost warrant a post by themselves. Many different sorts of captchas were used. There were audio captchas & semi-manual captchas, people tried to develop software to solve captchas faster, people hired others to do captchas, and supposedly at one point the RaiBlocks captchas were using 10% of ALL Google captchas per day.
