I need to bury 500 small pieces of paper. They need to survive in good condition for at least 7 years underground.What type of hole should I dig and what type of container should I put my paper inside before burying?
Hardware store pvc pipe with a cap on one end and a screw top. Put a decent amount of thread tape on to seal and it should be good enough. You can make it any size you wish. If you want to store metal in a similar container you should grease the parts before burying.
>>1877589Vacuum seal the 'paper' in a plastic bag with a desiccant pack, dip in paraffin wax until well coated, seal in PVC pipe, coat pipe with elastomeric sealant, bury vertically. in sandy soil
>>1877589>What type of hole should I digThe hole should be pyramidal in shape with the tip of the pyramid just touching the surface of the ground. It is a difficult hold to dig, but you can not argue with results.
>>1877616helix shape would be even better
PET bottle preforms, cheap, abundand, no work involved, just close and forget. Tamperevident as a bonus.
>>1877589A sea container filled with artifical crab, you will need at least 10 tonnes.
>>1877589what did you rob anon
agreee that pet would work fine. but a jar also. wrap in plastic bag place in a lunchbox and it will last as long its sealed
>>1877596This, and bury in a hole 500 feet deep by 1 foot wide.
Put them in ziplock bags and then inside a $5 plastic ammo box from Harbor Freight.
>>1877596But glue on caps on both ends.
>>1877650>abundandI thought there was a shortage now because everyone is at home.
>>1877589Can you laminate the paper? That would make it very long lasting. Might not even need a container if its sealed well.
>>1877650Would rolled up cash fit in those?
>>1877795that's the point dumbass.
>>1877589So you are burying money? Is that from a bank robbery?
>>1877589Don't bury money OP. It could become worthless. Buy gold or silver and bury that if you want.
>shows picture of kids burying a thermos bottle>What to bury stuf in?How about a thermos bottle?
Buy a couple of mylar baloons and puts notes inside remove air from baloons and seal with iron. Place in pipe and your good for 100 years easy.
>>1877650There's a bunch of geocaches around me in those things. I check on them every now and then. They've held up for years, even with people opening them up and putting them back.
>>1877589get a long tube with one end closed.It should be so long that you have atleast 3 feet empty space between the opening and content.fill it up halfway. put something nonflammable.wrap it with wet towelweld the open end shut with an overlapping capweld the open end shut
>>1877604ThisPeople need to go back and look at what "time capsules" hold up and which ones dontIf it isnt plastic, it doesnt lastIf it wasnt bone dry inside, and the seal wasnt air tight, moisture ruins everything
>>1877589how important that they survive? I'd do >>1877650and try to get a tank of CO2, hydrogen, or ideally nitrogen and put a little tube from a regulator into the bottom and let some out to replace the air inside with (gas) to prevent oxidation damage
>>1878318>or ideally nitrogen and put a little tube from a regulator into the bottom and let some out to replace the air inside with (gas) to prevent oxidation damageWell...water can permeate through plastic
Imagine how soft yet musky their teen soles are under those leggings
>>1878334 true but plastic is not plastic. Also 2mm wall is plenty thick enough even with permeability. Also, whats another option for a container? melting glass? metal and welding/soldering 500 pcs? Even the wax coating will take days or weeks if done properly and then there is no mechanical protection. I have no idea how valuable/ important/ illegal the shit is, OP wants to burry. Also noone specified the type of ground. All in all id say, take a preform, drop in a bag of silica and tighten it properly. You will have reliable seal and plenty of moisture absorbant for a decade or two. The likelyhood of some wired wax dunking breaking away or not sealing nicely on a big portion of this amount of containers is much higher. Also youd still have to put it in a container for mechanical protection.
is this a pipebomb thread in disguise?
Lab glass tubing is ideal if it is acceptable for your application to break the container upon opening. It can be purchased in various diameters to accommodate a given quantity of rolled paper and easily sealed with a heat suitable heat source. Inexpensive plastic tubing can then be placed over the top to provide mechanical strength.
>>1878481Nah, what would be the point of sealing it off for this time and not have a strong enough container? Also why make 500 and store them not in the same place?>>1878484Yes, but still consider the effort. Thats 1000 seals (or 500 if using testtubes) that you have to manually do and not fail them, wich is not as easy as it might look if you have never done it. Even harder if you dont want to burn contents or stress the glass. But yes, glass in plastic would be ideal.
>>1877589If the container is only a foot tall then you also need a 500 ft hole to put them in.
>>1877589are you making a stash of one time pads and other spy-related material?
>>1878481No. Op is asking how to bury cash while he goes away for whatever he did to get the cash. Sounds like he’s out on bail, but getting ready to take whatever plea deal is on the table.
>>1877589OP hiding money from his wife
>>1878869oh no wait that makes more sense than his wife
>>1878869good luck finding it again spread over 500 dirtholes xD
>>1878481Pipebomb thread in disguise also check
>>1877589!>I need to bury 500 small pieces of paper. So $50,000 US?
>>1879090Yup unless it is 500 small pieces of paper with Bitcoin wallet numbers on each then we could be looking at +3million right give or take the pipebomb trips were looking at a bank robbery by a women who was struggling that was turned in by her husband in Maine
>>1879091On a side note my friend cat just become private number one he hid the cat toys under the fridge legit
>>1877735anything metal will be gone in a couple years, glass might last but plastic is always better
>>1877759how the fuck would anon make a 500 feet deep hole thats only 1 foot deep??
>>1879198You say that like you cant do this?
>>1879198Post holder with 500 foot long handles
>>1877589https://www.preformed.com/communications/copper-networks/armadillo-stainless-splice-cases/armadillo-stainless-kits/armadillo-stainless-kitDo you want your shit to actually not leak?
>>1877589anon, i'd suggest you try to reduce mold and moistuire by dowsing the paper in an anti-mold powder, then laminate them with a few silicia bags in the laminate.Put them all together and put them in a plastic box.Don't forget taht the box will warp over time and there's nothing you can do about itDo we really need to bury it? Why not just chuck it in a hollow tree?
>>1877589put it in several plastic bags and the plastic bag package in a container you also put into several plastic bags. you can also use hot glue to seal the container
>>1879198Get your wife's son to help.
