Morse Code

It suddenly occurred to me that if everyone who takes driving lessons must learn morse code, then we could high beam someone a sequence of long and short bursts to get our point across...

for example:
--. . - / -- --- ...- .. -. --. / -.-- --- ..- / - .-- . . -
will mean "GET MOVING YOU TWEET"

-.-- --- ..- / .-- .- -. - / - --- / -.. .. . / .. ... / .. -
will mean "YOU WANT TO DIE IS IT"

.- ... ... .... --- .-.. .
will mean "*SSH*L*"

you can find more morse codes here. if you click play, it actually sounds like those kena censored parts in TV shows tutu... tutututu... tu... tututututu... LOL

some interesting facts about morse code from WikiHow. the distinctive beginning of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 is short-short-short-long, or dit-dit-dit-dah, which is the letter "V", the roman numeral for "5" (as in Beethoven's 5th Symphony), and is rather appropriate for such a "victorious" tune, don't you think? During WW2, BBC broadcasters used this four-note melody to start off its radio broadcasts because of its association with the word "victory"!

cool... v cool.
