>Morse Code or SMS

My buddy from childhood (in the photo on the left) sent me this video.

It’s a clip from the Jay Leno show where they see which is faster, Morse Code (which is 175 years old) or Text Messaging on a cellphone.

I actually was able to copy some of the code but when Jay started talking and the crowd started cheering, I couldn’t hear it.

  5. >Funny stuff. You might have offended the Luddites.;-)

  6. >What scares me is that I am one of about 1 people my age or younger who knows how to use a slide rule. What would happen if the need for that stuff would come back?

  7. >That’s great!Old human communication in new design.(( Nice Weekend Mr & Mrs ))

  8. >I learned Morse in scouts years ago and we had troop competitions and were very fast. Other than SOS, I’ve forgotten it. I guess I should relearn it in case I ever have to tap on the toilet to send a message to a fellow prisoner.

  9. >I guess I should relearn it in case I ever have to tap on the toilet to send a message to a fellow prisoner.You mean they will confiscate your cell phones?Dang.I used to know semaphore (flag waving signal corps). I wish Mrs. Geezer and I would learn that again. It would come in handy when we’re 100 yards apart on hunting trips.Oh, we have radios… I forgot.
