Town in Norway holds breath over 100-year-old package

Speculation is rife about the contents of the three-kilo parcel, sealed and bound in 1912 by the then mayor of Sel, Johan Nygaard, who wrote on the package that it “can be opened in 2012”.

Having kept it to himself for the first few years, Nygaard handed the package to council authorities for safe-keeping in the 1920s.

“We haven’t the faintest idea what’s inside,” said Kjell Voldheim, who works at the Gudbrandsdal Museum where the package is held.

“It’s going to be incredibly exciting. We have fantasized a lot about what it might contain. The council has expressed a desire for it to contain a sheaf of oil shares that could help the municipality,” he told newspaper VG.

Voldheim is one of two people who will open the package on Friday, when the century-old secret will finally be revealed.

It's a message from the future.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
