Time capsule my a$$.

Someone had the brilliant idea to bury a car 50 years ago in Tulsa Oklahoma. Take a look at this (http://www.buriedcar.com/photo_gallery.asp) gallery. Cool huh?

Well, they started digging it up this week and what did they find. You decide. Clicky! (http://www.tulsachevys.com/Images/buriedcar/index.html)

Cool, I guess. Better than most time capsules. Although I don't really get your "you decide" part, but the first page wouldn't load right, so I guess I'm missing something.

Anyways, something similiar happened near me:

I heard about this...it's pretty interesting...I would have dug the stuff up like 2 months after burying it :laughing:

Wait...what happened to the car? Is it covered with a plastic bag or is that rust? lqtm

Oh wow...yeah I heard about that. Apparently whoever got closest to guessing the correct population of Tulsa 50 years ago would win the car...but would the microfilm they recored the guesses on even be salvageable now?

And how hard could it be to make a watertight container?
