Code was used throughout the second world war, and it's not as simple as just looking in a book. There were differing levels of secrecy, with some
cyphers restricted. Even now there will be some cyphers that are not common knowledge.
Deciphering this would have taken a key, and a key is not something you can just "work out" through looking at it.
No one here is going to be able to crack that code.
Don't you think it would have been a little stupid to use a code that could be deciphered by a layman? This was intended to remain secret from Nazis
and their sympathizers, does anyone here really think that they are more intelligent than an entire WW2 code-breaking department?
I also think the reporting on this is a little pathetic. This is not urgent, obviously. No one is "frantic" about it - unless they have existing
intel that Hitler built a time machine and jumped ahead to Dec 1st 2012 when he was about to be captured.
It's a fascinating story, because it connects us to what happened, and it reminds us of what people achieved back then to defeat the Nazis. This was
back in a time when the British people were genuinely clever, imaginative and resourceful.
It will be interesting to see what it says, and whether that information would change our view. For all we know it could be stating that Hitler is
about to surrender, or that they plan to invade the UK, or that they've developed a weapon that we then never witnessed... there are countless
possibilities. Of course, it could also say "please send more toilet paper"
No. I think it was YOUR IQ that dropped sharply while you were away... Well, no... "dropped sharply" is giving you waaaay to much credit...
"Vanished into thin air" would at least be closer to the reality of the situation...
First, you come prancing in here like you own the place and insult every participant of this thread for actually considering that there might be a
possibility of the code being broken...
THEN... much akin to a 7 year old with add, or perhaps a goldfish whose memory resets every 3 seconds.. you yourself are speculating on how
"interesting" it will be when we find out what it said. (Refer to your final paragraph in case even more of your brain cells disappeared and you
can't figure out what I'm talking about...).
What's wrong? The guy with the gigantic brain who insults everybody as casually as he might pop a potato chip into his mouth can't remember what
happened 3 seconds ago?? Hmmm...on second thought maybe those were paint chips instead of potato chips you were eating... An understandable blunder
for an individual of your intellectual caliber. It would also explain the rapidly increasing exodus of IQ points from your sadly depleted brain... can
it even be called a brain anymore after such a display in front of the entire ATS membership? Surely it hardly resembles what we would recognise as a
human brain. Probably more like a small collection of brainish type cells in a petri dish.
Although I am nearly certain that you will ignore both of my recommendations, my integrity requires me to at least attempt to help a fellow human in
dire need of assistance. My recommendations are as follows: 1) For the love of God and all that is true and just... STOP EATING PAINT CHIPS! 2)
Please discontinue this ugly practice of waltzing on into a thread to immediately insult your fellow ATS members as if you actually think you are
better than... well, ANYONE.
