Well, That Norwegian Time Capsule Reveal Was Awkward

The whole thing was carried out with extreme care, though.

Time will tell whether the capsule’s cache is of any legit worth or cultural significance. I am an Anderson, but know not a lick of Norwegian. With no captions, I was completely lost during the grand opening. But from the looks of it it seems the package was stuffed with your typical message-to-the-future fare – newspaper clippings, some fancy-looking scarf things, yellowed and handwritten documents, and what look like Moleskin journals. Color me unimpressed? I dunno.

The whole thing was carried out with extreme care, though. I’ll give ‘em that. Just look at the revealer’s Mickey Mouse gloves.

In other news, I’ll be throwing a time capsule party in the near future. You’re invited.
