Just how does one write a 97 year old message, anyway?

Well, that's certainly one old-ass message.

No, it's "not-news", If you want news-news, go to BBC World.

I'm just glad they found those descendants.

They're not saying what the note contains, because it's probably an old-school sext.

The message reminded me of when I used to collect old postcards, most of them used, and 90 percent of them said some variation of the same thing.

"Having fun in ___________.

Wish you were here."

I can only imagine the disappointment of the recipient who was doing something like busting their as behind a plow or something wondering for the love of Pete, why do people submit this drivel without DIPs?  (Details In Postcard).

I wonder when the city of Detroit will issue a littering charge to their descendants.

It will go unpaid like most fines in Detroit.

Dear Subby,

Was the message found or the descendants found?

I collect post cards too, but for Sending Purposes, and I like to buy whole boxes at flea markets when I can. A woman from my area (Pittsburgh) must've been a PRODIGIOUS pen-pal, because I've run across her cards hundreds of times at flea markets all over PA and in Ohio. When I shop with my mom and find a box we both look through it later, and one of us always ends up saying "Here's one from Geneva!" (Not the place, that was the lady's name.). I love the little peeks into the past.

It made the Malacca Run in less than 30000 leagues, you've never heard of it?

Apparently you have to do like these girls did. Send out a bottle which fails to travel through space, but instead travels through time.
