Current list of stuff for my time capsule to be buried deep in the ground.

-Open Source Civilization Discs http://opensourceecology.org...
-Picture of myself (there's my ego talking)
-History book
-Pencil sketch of earth
-Photo of Earth

Anything else?

What's the point of the images of the earth, or the history book (would like to know which one)? Kind of the point of a time capsule is to demark a particular point in time through items that typify our times (which most likely would fade). Something like a copy of Harry Potter, and a copy of the Wall Street Journal would be the sorts of things that would work in a time capsule.

Other than the photo of yourself, the other items won't really change over time.

Its more of something I want people to dig up after the apocalypse. Or a REALLY long time when America will be forgotten.

To help out future archaeologists.

probably wouldn't be the case that they would need much to know who we are, but i would put in things that are more culturally iconic.

Why give f***?

Speaking of which, shoot some genetic material in there, let them track evolution.

(If serious, need chemical solution to preserve it or something).
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Reminds me of a book I believe it is called Hotel of Mysteries. Archaeologists did up after many years an hotel room and make completely inaccurate assumptions.
