    This is Megan, and she would like to tell you about her journey into the past.
    A short time ago Megan’s family moved into a new house. Well, it wasn't exactly new, but it was very spacious. It might've looked like an old shack with spiderwebs and ghosts in the attic but she and her parents had a plan for how to make it look great both inside and out. Among all their other ideas, they decided to turn their backyard into a beautiful garden.
    While her parents were working on the inside of the house, Megan started the gardening project by doing the most important thing - creating a garden bed. She was so happy to be out there working, but after digging only a few feet into the ground her shovel suddenly hit something hard. Her heart started beating faster with anticipation. What if she’d just found a skull?
    It did actually turn out to be a metal case, but there was no gold in it. Just an old watch with a near disintegrated white leather strap and Mickey Mouse on the watch-face, a round tin can with celluloid film inside, and a note.
    Being careful not to harm the film, she set it aside and opened the note. It was written by someone named Darla. She wished whoever found this treasure all the best, and hoped that when it was found the world would still be a prosperous place, and people would have already figured out how to fly to the stars. She also enclosed a gift - her favorite wrist-watch. The note was dated 1958.
    The note didn’t say what was on the film, so Megan was very eager to find out. She couldn't stop thinking about it, right up to the moment when she finally found a film projector available to buy online. She also spent some time studying how to play an old movie without ruining the film. This whole experience turned out to be an interesting adventure.
    And so the moment finally came when Megan was able to watch the three-minute movie, which consisted of just a few scenes. She saw her new house when it was a newly-built cottage. There was a view of the street, where she recognized a few of the then much younger trees, fully grown by now. To her surprise the area looked like it hadn’t really changed much over the past 60 years. The cars, however, were totally different. The last shot was of a pretty girl smiling and waving at the camera, with their house in the background. Megan assumed it was Darla… And she wanted to know more about her. She must be over 70 years old by now, she thought.
    The first thing she did was to ask all their neighbors. Unfortunately, none of them had lived there 60 years ago, so they knew nothing about Darla.
    Then Megan went to the city archives. She didn’t learn much, but she did find a record about the family that lived at their address in 1958. The last name on there was at least a starting point!
    Megan kept investigating and finally came across a phone number. When she called, a grown-up male voice answered the phone. She told him that she currently lived at the house where his family used to live, and asked him if he knew a Darla. “That's my grandma but she's losing her memory and for the last few years she's lived in a nursing home.”
    The conversation made her feel really sad. In the film she had seen a young girl, smiling and full of life and energy, and it felt strange to realize that now she had grown old and even lost her memory. She decided to visit her anyway.
    She went to the nursing home where Darla lived, and told the staff there who she was and what she had found. They didn’t object to her meeting Darla and showing her the things she had left in the box half a century ago. A nurse showed her the way to Darla’s room.
    The door opened and Megan saw a nice old lady in her seventies, wrapped up in a warm checkered plaid blanket. She was confused when she saw her, for some reason deciding that she was her great-granddaughter. Megan neither contradicted nor confirmed her thoughts. She just sat close to her and showed her the case that she had dug out of the garden with all the things inside. Darla thoughtfully twirled her old wrist watch in her hands while Megan played her the video from the old celluloid that she had shot on her smartphone's camera.
    Believe it or not, the old lady remembered recording it! She didn’t realize who Megan was, but she recalled with confidence her idea to leave a “time capsule” for people from the future. Megan listened to her memories about that day in particular and about life in general - what things were like 60 years before.
    It was certainly an interesting experience to see how people perceived the future over half a century ago!

I like this channel and this was a really cool story. I love how there are trolls here but the best thing you can do is just say absolutely nothing. Saying even the slightest thing just gives them the chance to keep going. No matter what they say, even it's personal.. ignore it. That's a surefire way to shut them down.

+Jeff Jeff 1234567 I get what you're saying but it's about the personal experience and the excitement. Finding something special that someone left for another to find. It's so cool how this girl went through all of this. It's more personal than YouTube when it's a video of your own street and house more than half a century ago! You know? That's exciting and special. It's an adventure.

Hello Actually Happened! I love the idea of the storyteller creating her own time capsule. However, using a flash drive is not an ideal storage medium. It is highly unlikely to hold up over 50 or 100 years due to entropy. Flash drives become unstable over time and can even be prone to oxidation over such a long period. If someone would like to make a time capsule of digital data, it would be best to use archival-grade optical media (eg. DVD, BD). There is a type of data storage called the M-Disk. It's a 25GB Blu-ray disk that will store your data for up to 1000 years. A 15 pack cost around $60. In addition to saving your content to the disk, it would be a good idea to also save it in a couple different video formats. I hope this will help anyone else out there considering making a time capsule of their own :)

About a year ago me and my dad was digging because he wanted to plant a flower when I found a metal box that needed a key we lifted it up and found a key underneath we opened it up and found a video tape just like you luckily we had a camera thingy (don’t know what it’s called) and watched the tape we saw two kids a boy and a girl we found a note saying that their names were Nile and Nilah they were twins we kept on watching it and saw our house it looked different the door was pink and when they showed us inside it was much smaller the video tape ended and read the rest of the note it said that they were both 10 and had a mother named Livia they said it was 1949 I was going to try and meet them but they were dead I heard that Nile died in 1950 they know this because there Great Grandma used to be friends with them both but she was 4 Nilah died in 1959 because she got very sick we still don’t know what she got and we have no idea how Nile died...I’m still thinking about it till this day
