A curious 100-year-old package will be opened at noon tomorrow in Norway, and it's got folks on reddit in guessing-game mode. The nearly 7-pound, 16-inch-long package was bestowed on the town of Sel in 1912 by then mayor Johan Nygaard with strict instructions to open it in 2012. It's survived two world wars and was nearly put out with the trash twice. Predictions about its contents range from the fictional Blue Star diamond featured in "Titanic" to valuable oil-share certificates.
My grannies lost underwear. She had an affair with the King of Norway and left her panties behind. Bad habbits are hard to break. So much for the post office. How embarrassing .. her 'unmentionables" are now going to be the most mentioned!

Can't think why anyone would want to leave something serious for people to open 100 years later..
