. . . _ _ _ . . .

Who would not give their eye teeth to get their hands on this Morse Code set? 
 As a child I would have loved this kit. As an adult I am equally enthralled. What an impossibly romantic notion for a space station to use such a simple technology as morse code. Or is it? I think I've seen enough Sci-Fi movies to know that when the electronics panel catches on fire and all sophisticated communication devices fail, someone can wire together a device like this and save the universe!
But I digress....this particular kit buzzes, flashes and is battery operated. Plus, as an added bonus, there's an old bandaid stuck on the connecting wire. It was probably used to tape the wire to the bedroom wall, so as not to get tangled in the vaccum. I imagine that in the midst of the excitement of receiving this kit there was no time to waste looking for standard adhesive tape.
Thanks Suey for this lovely gift xx
