I'm betting once most of the people who saw it buried were gone, someone moved the stone to be a dick.

And this is why the Jimmy Hoffa Memorial Time Capsule was a poor naming choice.

It's a time capsule. Maybe they're looking in the wrong time.

Should have left a plastic centurion to guard it.

Of course the time capsule it's not at the same place, the planet moved a long way in 25 years. Next time they should make a time and space capsule.
 
2013-10-27 01:47:08 PM
One of those would be an interesting place to leave a body. People will try to make sure it's not dug up until so much time has passed, by which time you'll be long gone.

1988? I can give them a Commodore 64, some old computer magazines and a box of old ICs. Maybe an Aiwa portable cassette player.

Hmmm. Back in 5th grade or so we buried a time capsule. The school closed in the late 70's. Wonder what happened to it. I reckon it's still there somewhere.

We did one in grade school 89 I believe, put in a loonie (they were just minted that year)

That was the plot of an episode of Bones.

Crap.  I didn't think anyone saw me.  Oh, well.  At this point, what's one more?

Um...because that sekrit mooslim communist has a time machine which he used to move the time capsule & steal our 'merikin freedom.

Obviously.

Why do you hate Merika?

This is terrible, now we'll never know what life was like in 1988!

Seriously, wtf. I have stuff in my closet older than that.

That'll teach 'em to put sticky icky in the box. Dirt mex would have done the job.

One of their best clues to his identity and how long he'd been lying under the leaves was an item of clothing, an iconic artifact from the era of Pac-Man and MTV - his 1980s Members Only jacket.

Which is why I said older than 1988. I don't know exactly when I got it or why I still have it though. Anyway the point was I just think it's a bit silly to dig up a time capsule after such a relatively short time. They should be left alone for at least 75 to 100 years.

Apostrophe pluralizing was never in style.

Of course it's still there. Do you know how hard it would be to move a school?

They should have taken a video of the burial and uploaded it to YouTube. That's the only way to guarantee you can go dig it up after 50 years. Just go back and consult the video if you can't find it.
 
2013-10-27 02:43:54 PM
I wonder if they dug up the one at Alva A Scott in Hawaii. Time to do some research.

My class buried a capsule in 4th grade. There is currently a parking lot over it.

Homer Simpson and the Time Capsule Mystery


10. Homer:  Oh, yeah! I mean to bury that!
09. Homer: I couldn't help myself. It was full of teenager's cigarettes and delicious Duff beer!
08. Homer: Well, when something goes mysteriously missing at Home, what we do is find the Boy. WHY, YOU LITTLE ... COME TO DADDY'S STRANGLIING FINGERS!
07. Homer:  This is the biggest mystery since they moved the town because of all the garbage. Remember that funny episode of our life, Lisa?
Lisa: I'll be in my room ... sulking. Bart: Well, duh!
06. Groundskeeper Willy:  Willy don't know nothin' about any Time Capsule. (thinks) But a least Willy's little stash is safe.
05. Bart: Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Bartman strikes again, fools!
04. Principal Skinner:  I am so ashamed. Mother wouldn't let me have the shovel.
Agnes Skinner: You're not getting the shovel until I'm dead and cold. And even then you won't do a good job of burying me.
03. Homer:  I saw Frank Grimes shambling down the street with it last Halloween. I tried to get it back because I though it was a keg of Duff, but his arm came off and he dropped the Capsule, so I left it there.
02. Homer:  Stupid Time Capsule. Nothin' good in it--just children's drawings of the future. Where's my flying car?
01. Chalmers:  Skinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnner!
Skinner:  Let me explain, Superintendant Chalmers! You see, the school couldn't afford a time capsule so we buried the School Gerbil, Smelly .... And not a moment too soon, I might add.


And this is why Springfield, USA, can't have nice things.

That's the year I was a paid speaker at the Superman 25th birthday celebration in Cleveland -- gave a one-hour talk about SETI, hung around a few hours talking comics with Julie Schwartz, collected a couple hundred bucks for the privilege.

Who buries a time capsule and plans to open it just 25 years later?  That's lame.  It's not old enough to be cool.  Those kids parents are the right age to have been the ones who buried it.  It needs to be at least grandparents-buried-it age.
