Oh, One More Thing

So a funny exchange over at the super secret place.

"I'm involved in a discussion about the remaining uses of morse code, and I'm wondering: Do ships still use it with signal lights and masthead lights? If so, how extensive is its use?"

"Given the fact that the Chinese just shot down a satellite, maybe we should practice a little more."


Second favorite line about the Chinese incident was over at OP-FOR where John says:

"Meh. Welcome to 1985, Chicoms. The year when --presumably with REO Speedwagon cranked-- we sent an F-15 soaring to the edge of space to kill a target sat."
