Hieroglyphics are surprisingly easy to read. The book "Egyptican Grammar" by Gardiner is really good.

Maybe timetravelers from the future can translate something equally useless into English and send it to us.

Just buy an on-line version, or get the text on-line, and you can create a binary version in about 10 seconds with a simple computer program.
