Let me assure you that we never saw that message before I flipped the blue card over. Each message, in rehearsal, was different. The character count was the same as the one during dress rehearsal, though, to account for the time slot.
And they put the card on the table "upside down" creative to how I flipped it, as you can see on the video. So that was the first time we saw it. But I did save a ton of money on my car insurance.
During the Australian competition in April, a Morse team consisting of 93-year-old former post office telegrapher Gordon Hill — the sender — and 82-year-old Jack Gibson — the receiver — topped 13-year-old SMSer Brittany Devlin. In that event, Hill spelled out the message in full, while Devlin used text-messaging shorthand. In that competition, held at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Hill took 90 seconds to send the message, 18 seconds faster than Devlin's message took to reach her friend's cell phone.
