This paperback is very interesting, but I find it will never replace a hardcover book - it makes a very poor doorstop.

A Quote by Alfred Hitchcock on ideas, life, order, people, preparation, and time

We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like. I have prepared one of my own. I have placed some rather large samples of dynamite, gunpowder, and nitroglycerin. My time capsule is set to go off in the year 3000. It will show them what we are really like.
