Time capsule from 1969 opened and (drumroll) nothing was inside!

I was about to suggest that writing the combination on the back of the safe may not have been the most secure strategy in the world, but I’ve had my passwords Post-It Noted to my monitor for years, and everything’s fine here.

If you can remember 1969, you weren’t really there.

Finally, hard proof that the Apollo 11 mission was staged.

Sadly, any time capsule buried in this era would be similarly empty.

Q: What happens now?
A: Well now, uh, Lancelot, Galahad, and I, wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the time capsule, taking the future by surprise.
Q: Who leaps out?

I disagree. Inside was air from 1969! Get a whiff of that incense. And is that burnt banana skin I smell?

Of course 1969 existed. That was the year Candle Cove aired on TV.

Put me in mind of this…

That said, bummer. Though I wouldn’t have thought to place an off-site list of contents for a time capsule, and I suppose that’s advisable, so something learned.

I expect the person charged with filling it was just too damned high.

Perhaps it was a prank? Tell everyone it’s a “time capsule” and get everyone’s expectations up for 50 years, but never actually put anything inside it in the first place. Hilarity!

Maybe they filled it with dry ice sculptures?
