9:00 - Pick a random sentence from a random book. This is the 1st line of your story.
"But he has clearly been working toward some evil purpose for many years."
"Doug? The captcha writer?"
"We're a billion dollar company. Why do we need a guy to write captchas for our web sites? Every other company has an algorithm for it."
"Well, it's artisanal. Hand-crafted captchas, perfectly tailored to the individual. It's a service!"
"That's SO inefficient! And some of the captchas are kind of... sinister."
"Sinister? The last one I got was 'LUMINESCENT CARDBOARD.'"
"Really? All of mine are stuff like 'APOCALYPTIC BLOODFIRE' and 'WOMB EXPLOSION'"
"Maybe it's just a coincidence."
"Well, lately they've been weirder. They all have a number in front of them, and then 'IT COMES'."
"That's terrible web security. A computer could totally get through that, no problem. Someone should talk to that guy."
"I'm not worried about f*cking spambots! I'm worried that he's a crazy Satanist trying to bring about the end of days. The last one I did was 664 IT'S COMING!"
"Well.... maybe you shouldn't fill out any more captchas. Just in case?"
"Screw that, man. It's the only way to get into my e-mail."
