Relatively Obscure: I played with Gobots and Transformers at the same time.
nytmare: Lionel Mandrake: I surprised they weren't blinded by a shiatload of neon apparel.Neon was two years later, in 1989.
DigitalCoffee: At least no one got this:
lilistonic: That happened to me at the skating rink in about 1978 or 79 when I was 13. I was wearing tight "peg leg" Levis and they split open. And I had to sit at a concession table for over an hour until my mom got back from wherever, to pick me up.In other news, I had my first child in 1987...sigh.

Mock26: 25 years for a time capsule? Seriously? What is next? A 5-year time capsule? Or maybe schools can start doing 5-month time capsules? Sorry, but I think that when you bury a time capsule you should set an opening date far enough into the future so that there will be no one alive when it was buried.
fusillade762: I still remember a brief period in high school when everyone I knew wanted a pair of Capezios.

Wasilla Hillbilly: I have an idea for a time capsule that you open immediately. It's a good way to get some cool stuff in a box.
Beanlet: fusillade762: I still remember a brief period in high school when everyone I knew wanted a pair of Capezios.Jazz, tap or ballet?
fusillade762: Beanlet: fusillade762: I still remember a brief period in high school when everyone I knew wanted a pair of Capezios.Jazz, tap or ballet?That was the weird thing: none of us were dancers. We just knew that the shoes were cool, somehow.
FlashHarry: what about those little battery-powered monster trucks. everybody had those back then.
Close2TheEdge: "No computers," Wing said. "I think we were still a year or two away from getting computers in 1987."Jeez, WTF? I graduated high school in 1986 and was working on Commodore PET and Atari 800's in school nearly 6 years earlier.
SubBass49: [img36.imageshack.us image 640x480][i.ebayimg.com image 300x225][i.ebayimg.com image 300x225]/why yes, I grew up in southern California in the 80s...how did you know?
basemetal: Why would you open a time capsule so soon?/25 years only seems like a long time to an 18 year old.
Krieghund: bob_ross: GOBOTS and not TRANSFORMERS?! *facepalm*/so much failWTF are you talking about? Which would you rather keep and which would you rather stick in some crappy time capsule?
vudukungfu: 2wolves: I have boots older than that.I still have a pair I bought for high steel work in '75.And some winter boots from '73.And moccasins I made in '72.

Quantum Apostrophe: Relatively Obscure: ""I don't remember it being 25 years," said Dan Pearson, who was a Seymour second-grader in 1987, when each class at the school put something into the capsule. "I just remember it was 'the future' - like there would be spaceships flying all around and we'd be living on Mars."image.spreadshirt.comI remember those thoughts, watching Beyond 2000 on TV."Takes a second grader to swallow that pap. Some never outgrow those childish fantasies.
Mentat: Army Ants
SubBass49: Mentat: Army AntsHad those...Plus Battle Beasts...[media.tumblr.com image 500x346]M.U.S.C.L.E. wrestlers...[monkeyblogmonkeydo.files.wordpress.com image 500x333]
ArcadianRefugee: Isn't the whole point of a time capsule to show what things were like "back then"? Isn't a 25yo "time capsule" kinda pointless when half the population remembers "back then"?
Besholives: Crackers Are a Family Food: tudorgurl: How sad is it that this capsule was closed 25 years ago...and all of that stuff doesn't seem all that old?Oh god...I'm old.My thoughts exactly. *sighs*/everyone at my elementary/middle school had a frightening obsession with Guess jeansI saw the children watching some new Garfield Pixar looking show on Netflix the other day.I told them it wasn't really Garfield because Bill Murray wasn't doing his voice./I'm starting to realize why they joke about me being old...
Huck And Molly Ziegler: At least they didn't bury an old Plymouth and bring up a rotting hulk.
GoodyearPimp: FlashHarry: what about those little battery-powered monster trucks. everybody had those back then.Stompers were from well before that... very early 80s. I remember them from 2nd grade (81-82). I'll grant that they may have still been popular by 87, but christ the NES had been out for at least a year in 87.
