    I will get this in ten years (maybe)

    :

    Hey. Its me. Remember me? Its Penny. It is 5:35PM sometime in November 2005. I`m listening to 4am by Lady Peace or whatever. Remember? Jonny went to his formal with Angela (L). Remember? This is sad writing this email. Will I be alive in 10 years when I recieve this email?It is nearly christmas. It probably wont be a happy one. Oh well. It happens. I was sad again today. Mary tried to talk to me. But I was too sad. We got a stupid question in maths today. YM + M = MY. Weird. We had the dance today. Remember? I danced with Manuel Bronson Michael and Justin. Remember? We are going to Wet`n`wild this weekend. Joy. Its supposed to rain. When I grow up, I want to be a weatherperson. Maybe in ten years I will be.
    Lol, if you see this email, remember that life sucked ten years ago. Maybe its better now.
    Good luck Penny.

    God Bless you.

    Love, Me.

    Lol. I hope I get this email. It will be cool to see what I think.

    Damn, that was the longest e-mail I had ever sent in my life and I won`t be able to read until 2008! Oh well it will be cool to read in 3 years just to see if I remember any of it and see how much it changed. I`ll just have to remember to keep my account that long! lol

    I sent one for 1 year, one for 3 years, one for 5, one for 10, and one for 20, all saying:
    Ok, this is a time capsule. I am 13, Female, live in Texas, and have Micheal as a dad. Mom is sleeping in the living room, Teesha is playing pretty princess board game, Micheal is sleeping on the couch with his fat lazy self, and Tommy is in his room sleeping. I just got done begging mom for Kylie, my best friend ever, to come over. ([email protected]) Kyle (My first boyfriend ever...) broke up with me, `said that he didnt like me... only as a friend he did tho` I think of myself as ugly, few friends, I love system of a down, black, no job, go to nichols junior high, blue eyes, petite, getting ready for high school, And is on THANKSGIVING BREAK! My Name Is Michelle. I Am You. A few years ago...

    I haven`t done one yet, but I am definitely going to. My life`s going through loads of changes at the moment and so it`s going to be quite tough writing something to myself. It`ll also be very freaky when I get the email in however many years. It could also be very depressing, or very uplifting, who knows.

    I do think the idea is an extremely clever and rather deep one - just like the standard time capsule idea I suppose. But this one isn`t going to rot or get mouldy in the ground.

    I hope you are all happy when you recieve your emails.

    OMG! I`m pissed, it keeps saying that I`m not typing the right code when I am! Fortunately I`m used to these damn things screwing up so I copied my message before I tried to submit it, I`m still re-trying and re-trying but it`s not working. I`m pretty sure I won`;t have the same account in 20 years, so I`mn trying 3, when I`m out of highschool, I`ll be 18, so it`ll be really interesting...

    I`ll get an e-mail in 10 years saying "Hey dude, it`s younger you! Remember me? You`re an old fart now, sucks to be you!!!" Older me will probably be REALLY ticked off! Older me will probably fire off a response like "F-U, younger me, go to hell!!!" This is gonna be great.

    that`d be great to recieve an email 20 yrs from now wen self`s on the verge of oncoming midlife crisis, and then suddenly poof! (dunno wat technology we`ll be faced to learn then to read a simple email, and surely we`ll find difficulties trying to understand "internet" of that time) we recieve an email saying things like "hey, aren`t you too old to use the internet? oh btw how`s your wife i`ve been seeing every week for the past decade?!"
    i`ll send a wake up call to be recieved next year, just in case hotmail bursts in flames

And will the service be there anymore in 1,5,10 or 20 years?I wonder if it would change history by sending an e-mail through this? Hmmmmm I could imagine myself opening it if i sent it. But, i don`t think i`d have the same e-mail account years from now.
