Can't get enough of that time capsule!

While the time capsule was getting all the attention (you can read more about her in the preceding posts or in the Greenpoint Gazette), I snuck off with some of the real stars. That's right.  Below, you can catch the exclusive interview that The Puru managed to snag with the 5th graders from Ms. (Julie) Feinberg's class at PS 31, who contributed a book about sewage to the capsule and may be the only people alive to see it in 50 years. What will Newtown Creek look like then?  What does a digester egg do?  And why is "feces" the preferred term for that stuff that comes out of our bottoms?

5th graders aren't afraid to tell it like it is.

A most productive President's Day to you, and peaceful pooping.

No President ever pooped in a time capsule

This past Friday, Feb. 11, your Puru, Shawn Shafner, took many different trains to arrive at the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. He, well,, I was there to witness the unveiling of a time capsule interred that morning at the center.  I brought my new camera, with the intention of making a video-blog (or "vlog" as I hear the kids call them).  I had so much material, I made three. Presidents are great, and in their honor, we'll (yes, we just switched pronouns again) post one part of the video each day of their special holiday weekend.  Today, we bring you Somewhere in Time: Part II, which condenses the highlights of all five speakers in under five minutes.

Peaceful pooping to all our Presidents, and all of us.
