KangTheMad: I'd be scared of a time capsule that was giving off high levels of radiation. I wouldn't open it.

This place is a message... and part of a system of messages... pay attention to it!
Sending this message was important to us. We considered ourselves to be a powerful culture.
This place is not a place of honor...no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here... nothing valued is here.
What is here is dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger.
The danger is in a particular location... it increases toward a center... the center of danger is here... of a particular size and shape, and below us.
The danger is still present, in your time, as it was in ours.
The danger is to the body, and it can kill.
The form of the danger is an emanation of energy.
The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place physically. This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.

I buried one in the back garden in the house I grew up in 20 years ago. I've drove by the house a few times since we moved and the garden beds remain undisturbed. I hope if its ever.found that I hear about it or get contacted. It's in a 2 litre pop bottle with a hot glued on lid so it should be ok for a few decades underground. Can't remember what I put in the bottle. I was into collecting coins and treasure hunting at the time so probably a few coins minted that year and ?

Do people still do time capsules? I bet Trump does it. I imagine people 100 years from puzzled by a DVD set of a season of "The Apprentice."

Sandisk sells a special USB drive meant for home time capsules.
Data maintained for 100 years or so.
Good luck finding an adapter for your brainchip in 2113 !

That's awesome. In 2007 a friend of mine and I drove from Wichita to Tulsa to see the unveiling of "Miss Belvedere," the 1957 Plymouth buried in a Tulsa time capsule for 50 years. It was not so well-preserved.

"Wearing white gloves to preserve the integrity of the items, the Historical Society carefully removes a [100 year old] newspaper..."

...and hands it directly to a woman who's not wearing gloves.

Miss Stein: shanrick: When it's not from the past, but from the future.

If it's tomorrow's newspaper with tonight's winning lottery numbers, I'm okay with that.
