What would you put in your time capsule?

Asked by charliecompany34 (7793points) August 7th, 2008

decades ago, my eighth grade class buried a time capsule with a lot of our stuff in it. whoever would dig it up, would find out a lot about what we treasured 30 years ago. what possession of yours would be discovered 30 years from now and declared a historical piece or even a museum artifact under glass, lock and key?

Myself- I survive off of all the Twinkies that everyone else puts in. =)

My stretch penny and misc. coin collection. When the wife and I travel and go sightseeing we seek out the stretch penny machines. We have about 40: many from Disneyland, a few from Hawaii, national parks, random attractions, etc. We also have foreign money, arcade tokens, casino chips, and other coin type memorabilia.

But I wouldn’t bury it until my wife and I are in our senior years. I think our collection will make a great keepsake.

My iPod, so that future generations can look back and say “Damn, she had good taste in music!” (What are you talking about? Of course they’re going to say that!) This is assuming that they’ll know how to use an iPod; My mom had to tell me what some of the buttons on a typewriter do.

Some of my favorite movies and musical albums probably. I’d put in some Pogs and a Koosh ball as well. I’ma 90’s kid what can I say?

My laptop. I would bury it along with a note saying that I spilled an entire cup of hot coffee on the keyboard, my son dropped it three times, and I spent countless hours using it to surf what was known then as the “internet.” I’m sure they will be able to plug it in (the battery doesn’t hold a charge for more than 10 seconds), and behold the wonder that was 2007 computer technology!

@glowfull…what books have you written, and are they for sale anywhere?

augustlan's avatar

I’d write a letter, too, about the way the world is today, and how I hope it’ll have changed in the future.

Eventually, Milo or me. Whoever goes first.
