audio and tactile emoticons

for more brain standardization
  [vote for,

there should be a standardized alphabet of audio and tactile emoticons.

there should be an international statistically averaged audio database that averages the sound that sighted people from every language group in the world make in response to seeing the various emoticons, so that you could associate an audio gesture with a tactile representation of the visual emoticon alphabet that evolves on Facebook Messenger or whatever the most popular emoticoning network is these days.

       Hmmm, tactile online porn... touchy-feely.... run your fingers over the smooth skin of the elliptical mainplane .... fondle the joystick.... sense the gentle warmth of the Merlin engine... ooooooooohhhhhh ....

       [8/7] You need to write a coffee table book - "Aircraft I Have Fondled"... or "Aerodromes I've Been Removed From".

       Oddly, the staff at IWM Duxford are astonishingly tolerant. Fair enough, they laugh like drains, but are smart enough to realize that serial aircraft-fondlers are in fact the ones least likely to harm a plane, particularly a Spitfire.   

       It's the bottle of polish and the soft cloth that convinces them.

       ooh, pro.

       Yeah, amateurs ... unless you have to zip your nylon anorak to stop the drool saturating your shirt, you're just a wannabe.   

       Also, you need to have memorized every page of the maintenance manual...

       If you are interested in this sort of thing you should check out the work of Manfred Clynes, if you don't know it already, I added a link to a free pdf. He had people push a button attached to a pressure transducer to express emotions, averaged the resulting pressure time graphs. Found similar patterns across cultures.
