OK, enough with the boring spy history, let's get down to business. You've probably heard of Morse Code. It used to be a very common code but now, not many people know it. If you haven't heard of it, here it is:
Hey, wait a minute! It's that easy to decode? Than why use it? Morse code is kind of a scribble-it-down-real-quick-and-pass-it-to-your-friends code. If you want a top-secret-burn-this-when-you-get-it code, you'll have to make it yourself. Sure, there are thousands of codes already out there that I could show you but those are known and easily decoded. How would you make your own code? It's fairly simple:
A= HI B=NEVER C=ROCK B=TRY C=MAT D=HOW E=CAR F=EARTH G=TEST H=ELF I=PEN J=CARD K=LEGO L=BONE M=BEE N=GET O=MATH P=YELLOW Q=TINY R=FOX S=TIME T=LAMP U=FOAM V=THE W=SAID X=IS Y=LIES Z=JUMPED
Just use a word for every letter of the alphabet “pass the notes on” would be: “yellow hi time time try elf car get math lamp car time
math get” You could also use symbols instead of words but then you can't type it up. Here are some things to remember when making and writing this code:
1.keep commonly used letters paired with shout words, you don't want to have to write “anti-disestablishment” every time you want to use an “a”
2. When finished with the code, try to avoid using words with two of the same letters next to each other like “assassination” or “kittens”. It will become much easier to code breakers to decode it.
3. try to keep things short but not to short
After you and your friends make the code, memorize that too. Tell no one.
