Dr. Steel retired too soon, this sounds like it would have been right up his ally.

That German Army general, was born in the 1700's, and we can hear him speak today...

That simple fact absolutely blows my mind :O

I wonder if there is a mosquito preserved in a blob of tree sap somewhere that fed off the blood of the general? in which case we could lay out his dsDNA and clone him. Give him back his voice and tell him that his country went on to lose two world wars and a world cup and that now a woman is running his country. I think the shock would probably kill him again. >:)

#6, come on, I don't want to have nightmares! Preserving the past for future generations is an important job, we should make digital archives that last far longer than present storage units.

#7 the next archive is 100% digital. in the future we can store our memory into a computer, which wil be maitained by robots, to keep it up for a long long time. (looks more scary to me)
