C'mon, Norway, open up that century-old mystery package already8/23/2012
A curious 100-year-old package will be opened at noon tomorrow in Norway, and it's got folks on reddit in guessing-game mode. The nearly 7-pound, 16-inch-long package was bestowed on the town of Otta in 1912 by then mayor Johan Nygaard with strict instructions to open it in 2012. It's survived two world wars and was nearly put out with the trash twice. Predictions about its contents range from the fictional Blue Star diamond featured in "Titanic" to valuable oil-share certificates. These days, a suspicious package is more likely to be greeted with a bomb squad than a marching band, but trusting Norwegians are so hyped up they'll be live-streaming the event here. [Source]
