    $\begingroup$ Is there any good reason to post that message as an image rather than as text? I get the impression that those characters are from the Unicode character set. Does the glyph (the font) really matter? In this case can we have a larger, sharper image please? Else can we have the message as text? $\endgroup$

This text is written in

Webdings characters which I use this sheet to compare it to the english characters.

The first part, I got:

This sentence is completely sense- and useless lol.

I don't get the

"sense-" part.

Is it a part of the riddle or did I do something wrong?

The second one I got:

If you encoded this sentence, you’re genius.

Is this correct?

Do you think future humans will be able to translate this?

I can't seem to find any connection between this question and the text. So I will take a wild guess and say

Yes, if Webdings are still around and not forgotten.

Maybe someone else will find a better answer than me.
