hey, that's a great idea

The Book of the Ark

First we write it. It could be a book of collected wisdom of DP members. Each person can write a short piece of advice or a couple of aphorisms. Then jrd3820 can work all the advice and aphorisms into a story format. Then, we destroy all copies except one, and break the copy up between various DP people. Each person will bury their section somewhere near where they live and write down the GPS coordinates. Then we put all the GPS coordinates together and come up with a very complex equation to which the GPS coordinates are a solution. Then we write another story about a secret book of wisdom, which somehow encodes the equation, and we post the story online. And a hundred years from now, someone will waste their life trying to figure it all out.
