We don’t need to waste any energy making time capsules.
Apparently, if we want future generations to know what we’re like, then all we need to do is continue making garbage.

And the garbage that we’re creating right now tells a lot about how we’re living too, and it will tell anyone else rummaging through our garbage in years to come what we were like—maybe a little more than you’re comfortable with.
Bonus: Plastic is Forever
