About This Quiz

Now's your chance to build your very own time capsule. Long after you've departed the earth, the things you leave behind will not only tell the world about the times you lived, but they will also let the person discovering them know that you were a unique soul. Wouldn't it be thrilling to know that you've helped educate decades to come through the things you've chosen to seal up in a time capsule?

Whether you would leave behind the most recent scientific journal or your grandma's recipe for apple crisp, you will be making a huge impact on the future. By sending a part of today into tomorrow, you will be ensuring that your way of life is remembered. In the same way you look back at your grandparent's mementos with fondness and curiosity, others will look at your time capsule as being part of the history of humanity. 

Unless you really want the future to examine your old gym socks, be sure to choose your time capsule items carefully. You only have one shot at filling up your personal time capsule, and you wouldn't want to waste it! Let us guess what kind of things you would include!
