I really hate the style of form captcha where one must demonstrate that one is a human being by choosing all the photos that contain cars, or all the photos that contain street signs, for example.

I don't know how people with vision impairments get past them at all.  You have nine poor quality fuzzy images, some of which show part of an item that might, or might not, be a car or a street sign.  And then there is the 'is this a car /  street sign?' question.  I just failed a captcha because an image showed me a thing that I would call a bus.  But apparently to a captcha, it's a car.   And if the 'street sign' shows a different language or indeed alphabet, sometimes you can't work out exactly what it is.  Or it shows you a photo with what are probably cars, but they are tiny and far away!

Aaaaaaaaaaa!   Come back, mental arithmetic captchas, all is forgiven!

I had trouble with that very same captcha! That kind of thing annoys me to an extreme degree! I'm always in a big hurry.

I came across it last week - not the best thing. I prefer the box I just have to tick to say I'm not a robot (although I do consider the possibility every time!)

I'm glad you said this. I thought it was just me, being easily confused.

They are getting worse--the pictures are getting fuzzier and more confusing all the time.
I think the way we're heading eventually we will end up with captchas that demonstrate that anyone who can handle them is a true AI.

It is clear that you might be a robot.

I know eh!? How stupid can they get? I hate that. Like? Do I look like a fucking robot? Annoying to the core. :-(

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes.

Still not a robot.

There's also the problem with them using US English. I can't remember what the word was, but I had to guess which objects qualified and which didn't.
