Yeah my friends, I'm dumbfounded after looking at various video clips of Time Capsule ceremonies and the contents of said capsules
One 100 year old capsule was filled with stupid books you can waltz into any random thrift store a find. Some had a newspaper, which I think is great, but they didn't survive the Silverfish and Booklice.
What were these people thinking? Were they imbeciles or something?
Were they thinking, " Oh a 100 years from now folks are gonna wanna read Huckleberry Finn" & the front page news that Farmer Joe's cow got struck by lightning in the pasture. "
I mean come on now my friends, where are the rare artifacts like mint coins, rare Jewelry, extremely rare pictures, etc.
One old box was opened and they let some kids refill it, so I guess 100 years from now someone will find some Happy Meal toy's, sneakers & a Justin Bieber poster.
