Now that it’s three weeks out from the release of the movie, the buzz surrounding the Code has been understandably high. (I don’t care – I’m adding to it). I read today that some English judge recently inserted his own secret code (I don’t care if that doesn’t sound right) into one of his judgements, leaving the legal community in London in a frenzy, trying to decode it, for fun.
Apparently, Justice Peter Smith used the dunnowhat Fettucine sequence to put letters in italics throughout the 71-page judgement. For fun.
The case, is of course, connected to the Da Vinci code – Justice Smith ruled that Dan Brown did not plagiarise someone else’s work. The code was discovered only last week, a month after the judgement was handed down. And the lawyer that discovered the embedded code cracked it after a day. So crevver.
And the secret code?
“Jackie Smith, who are you? Dreadnought”
WTF? But read the article, and you’ll learn that the HMS Dreadnought is a giant battleship dreamt up by Royal Navy Admiral Jackie Smith. And that it’s got absolutely nothing to do with the Da Vinci Code.
But nair mind. Much as I dislike code-cracking and other sorts of activity that require brain-power, I really like the locations featured in the filem, and I’ve been very fortunate to have Nadya Hutagalung go to all these places and take nice pictures for youse all.
