To the future, stripes and cake.

1. This story about a US town that buried a car to celebrate its 50th anniversary. It was dug up for the 100th anniversary. The intention is to present it to heirs of the 'lucky' person who correctly guessed the population of the town in 2007. Thanks to Paleo-Future for writing it up.

2. Neopolitan icecream -- the sort that comes in tubs with a stripe of pink, white and brown.

3. A tray of brownies in the oven.


  1. We had neopolitan last night!! Looks cool, shame it tastes of plastic. *:(

    BT today - receiving a box of books and a CD from Amazon. Just in time for the weekend, yay!

  2. Thanks for the link to paleofuture, fascinating!

  3. 4. Putting some neopolitan on the warm brownies. Yum.

  4. what a weird coincidence! i'd never heard of the Oklahoma car time capsule story until just a few days ago - I've been writing captions for film clips at work, and this was one of them. Apparently it was sealed up in an underground vault that was supposed to withstand a nuclear attack. (!) The glove compartment was filled up with all kinds of interesting things, too, like the contents of a typical 1950s ladies handbag (with lipstick *and* Valium!)
