Comment: This is an OLD, FAMOUS story that everyone has accepted, that I
think Snopes should check out. Doing so would be as easy as getting
someone who can read Morse code to look at a certain Youtube video.
The story concerns Navy Pilot Jerimiah Denton, who, during a filmed
interview while he was a POW of the North Vietnamese, supposedly blinked
T-O-R-T-U-R-E with his eyelids in Morse Code.
I know Morse Code, and have viewed the video, but I cannot clearly receive
that, or any other word from the blinks. Admittedly, I am not accustomed
to receiving Morse Code via that "mechanism."
TORTURE in Morse Code is -/---/.-./-/..-/.-./.
Confirm, or refute the story?
