Do you Remember Beepers? Pagers? Numeric Code?
Boy oh boy, do I feel old! Back in the days before smart phones...before cell phones...before the Zack Morris phone...and before car phones, we carried around chunky beepers (or pagers) and clipped them to our waistline!!! How cool were we? We developed our very own language, numeric code. Ah yes, the good old days!
143 = I love you
823 = Thinking of you
911 = Emergency
A = 6, B = 8, C = 2, D = 0, E = 3, F = 4, G = 6, H = 4, I = 1, J = 7, K = 15, L = 7, M = 177, N = 17, O = 0, P = 9, Q = 0, R = 12, S = 5, T = 7, U = 11, V = 0, W = 111, X = 25, Y = 4, Z = 2
Let's test out your skills. Can you read the above message???
It's scary to think how dependent we are on technology. I can't imagine my life without a smart phone anymore...
