Archeology

Archaeologists learn about ancient cultures by observing that small fragments they leave behind. In the right hands, a bit of pottery can speak volumes about its long-deceased makers and a half-destroyed statue can reveal cultural norms and values. Half a stone tablet can provide the foundation for deciphering dead languages.

As such, I am genuinely terrified that future archaeologists will discover the Internet and conclude that our culture worshiped naked people, illiterate cats, and bizarre videos.
