Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Morse Code Fast!
Apparently sometimes the old school way is actually be damned...

In a competition held by an Australian museum, telegraphers were pitted against teenage text-ers to see which device could transmit a text message faster. 93-year old Gordon Hill typed his sentence word for word, and had a fellow telegrapher transcribe it on the other end, and he beat 13-year old Brittany Delvin by a full 18 seconds! And she was using text slang!

Maybe I shouldn't have dropped out of Morse Code 101 after all...
