What would you put in a time capsule?
If you were going to buy a time capsule, what would you put in it and how many years do you think would be appropriate until it was dug up and opened, 50 years, 100 years - more/less?
myself...I'd love to be around in fifty years.
Other than me? I'd put my new book in there so someone could read what it was like to be born in 1962 and grow up in a cult. It's called The God Followers and you can buy it for a buck at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/109419 But you have to punch in the code number...QD68B...or you'll be paying full price...$3.99.
Ooops that should read 'if you were going to bury a time capsule'...too many interruptions not enough 'time'. lol...No seriously, I was thinking of burying a time capsule and started to think about what items I would put in it. Then I thought why not ask fellow hubbers? Next time I'll read it ten times before I post...(lol)
I would include a personal diary: writings of what it is like to live today. The Holy Spirit once told me, "500 years from now, history will be taught by the study of diaries written by people who lived during the era."
Because history is so dramatically distorted by those who hold power, and academia has become a major tool for "socialization", text books will be abandoned for the raw material.
Also, you could compile a list of prophecies. It will be interesting for people of the future to see what failed and what came to pass!

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I am about to publish an ebook (on Overcoming Anxiety) and would like to make use of my hubpages related to that topic (more to be posted soon). Will having an amazon link to the Kindle ebook count as one of my two self-serving links, even though it is in an Amazon capsule? I assume yes, but wanted...

How do you put a text capsule or a link capsule under the comments capsule?I have seen several hubs recently that have these capsules under the comments capsule. But when I insert either of these capsules, I cannot move them underneath the comments capsule. I like the idea of being able to put them...

Can you put picture capsules side-by-side to make 2 columns of pictures in a Hub?I know you can put a picture capsule to the right of a text capsule. I can also but an Amazon capsule next to another Amazon capsule or eBay capsule. Why can't I put 2 picture capsules side-by-side? I...
