Man Finds Century-Old Letter in a Bottle…and Refuses to Open It!

This story is amazing. Yahoo! is reporting that a man recently found a bottle along a beach in British Columbia, and inside is a letter dated from 1904. The man, Steve Thurber, has so far refused to open the bottle, for fear of damaging the letter inside. By looking through the foggy glass he was able to determine the date on the letter, the name of its writer, and the name of the ship from which it was tossed.

It is amazing that the bottle has survived for over a century, but the fact that Mr. Thurber hasn’t let curiosity get the best of him might be even more noteworthy. How many of us would have immediately opened the bottle? Probably most of us. I would have. There might be a treasure map inside :)
