Yeah, I had to reload it a few times to get a question that I could
answer. (I've forgotten most of my calculus.)
I've seen variants on other sites where context driven questions are
asked as part of registration. A forum about the TMNT might ask about
the show, or a religious site may ask a simple doctrine question.
It's nothing that can't be googled in a minute or two, but requires
some human intelligence.
Of course google is scriptable so that may not last too long either
(especially since the universe of questions on any one site is small).
It's an interesting idea, but definitely needs more development.
