Ha! Our shepherds invented a better way, which was used in the high mountains for few hundred years to communicate. The 5 to 8 meter thin tubes with a special construction would allow sending the sound over much longer distances, and it was used to warn when the invaders were coming, on in times of peace to send news. I grew in the Romanian mountains... Unfortunately the "language" is poorly known or mentioned, it is not documented much, it was kept between few, mostly in families and castes and it died with the old generations, once the telegraph and telephone took over.

There are an uncountably infinite number of reals which do not have a computable representation in any form. One example is: given a representation of a Turing machine, the probability that it halts when measured over all possibleprograms and input data, both of which are countably infinite.
