But time capsule nerds like me live for those rare capsules with something really cool inside.  Did you know that construction crews in Indiana were shocked to discover a time capsule from 1958 at a former mental hospital. The most exciting part? It contained a film with a message to the future–a message about electroshock therapy and psychiatric drugs. Based on the audio that’s survived, they’re talking about some pretty heavy things: electroshock therapy, and the “problems of the future.”google image
