For posterity’s sake

If you have ever thought of leaving some current day objects in a time capsule for discovery in the future, chances are that you underestimated nature. The story of this 1957 time capsule — including a car and various everyday items of the time — show that even 50 years is a long time. Oklahoma Time Capsule. Of course, when one sees remains of 100+ year old boats recovered from the seabed — two wonderful relatively recent examples of which are the Vasa in Stockholm and the CSS Hunley submarine in Charleston — one does have more hope. But, plan for extra sediment as that seems to be best antidote against time. As for us mere mortals, don’t forget to try a mud bath or, for the more rambunctious, play the super muddy “Swamp” Football. [You’ll have to wait another year to sign up for the UK championships]
