I hate it when someone on Facebook; or some other visual media decides to get "cute" and spell out Morse Code characters. For instance this morning, I saw several:
.... .- .--. .--. -.-- - .... .- -. -.- ... --. .. ...- .. -. --.
which of course, translates to "Happy Thanksgiving".
I stared at that for minutes, and finally made the connection because of the holiday tomorrow. I just cannot, for whatever reason, very easily translate visual Morse. I have to HEAR it. I sit or stand there for minutes, slack jawed and mouth agape, trying to figure out what I'd be able to decode in a nanosecond, if I could just HEAR it!
I guess it's just me, becoming a curmudgeon in my old age.
