When we were kids, my brother and I had a pair of big walkie talkies that had a morse code guide printed on the front and a button that broadcast a loud BEEP! whenever you pushed it, so you could signal each other in morse code. Instead of, you know, pushing the talk button and actually talking into it. Which you might be tempted to do, considering that they were walkie talkies.

My brother studied the morse code guide and got to be very proficient in sending messages to me in morse code.

I, on the other hand, focused all of my energies on leaning on the morse code button for as long as humanly possible and seeing how long it took to drive my brother insane.
