[rebelmouse-image 18357536 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

That's only one thing that comes to mind of a long list of things that stick out as bizarre about ancient Egyptian culture. That was only 5,000 years ago. So in even more time, how will humans feel about the remains of our culture?

Redditor PM-ME-UR-LAUNDRY asked:

If archaeologists uncovered the remains of our destroyed civilization 10000 years from now, what finding would confuse them the most?

Here were the best, most confusing 2018 answers.

See Ya Real Soon

[rebelmouse-image 18357537 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Disney would look like an ancient kingdom that worshipped a mouse god.

Recordless

[rebelmouse-image 18357538 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Unless they could get data off our devices and the internet, it would look like we suddenly stopped taking photos and making printed books.

Musky Coil

[rebelmouse-image 18357540 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I think they'll discover Elon's Tesla floating in space first which should be confusing enough for them.

Meta Museum

[rebelmouse-image 18351594 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The public tombs we made for the bones we had dug up from civilizations 10000 years before us.

Mountain Faces

[rebelmouse-image 18357541 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In 10,000 years the only things left might be the Great Pyramid of Giza and Mount Rushmore.

Capitalism, Man

[rebelmouse-image 18357542 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

So I'm going on the assumption they come across a trove of well preserved and vast collection of remnants from our time period; with this scenario, I think what will confuse them the most is how many disposable things we had. I imagine a future civilization to be highly efficient. I think the idea of single use, non biodegradable cups, straws, bags, coffee pods, etc will be insane to them.

All Of Our Secrets

[rebelmouse-image 18357543 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I think it would be the hard drives. If they can't read the contents of them - they will think it was just a spinning wheel in an enclosed box. they might think it was used as a gyroscope or something

Bones Don't Grow

[rebelmouse-image 18357544 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Clothing would be kinda confusing. You would find some XXXXL stuff, but you wouldn't find any skeletons suggesting people got that big.

If You Got It, Flaunt It

[rebelmouse-image 18357545 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Nuclear waste. It can still kill them.

Sith Finds

[rebelmouse-image 18357547 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Star wars toys. Did they worship these?! What is the empire?!? Whats the force???

CaliFlor

[rebelmouse-image 18349546 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

References to places called Florida and California.

But They Loved It

[rebelmouse-image 18357549 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They'll dig up tanning beds and think we cooked people as a punishment.

They Confuse Me In 2018

[rebelmouse-image 18357550 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fidget spinners.

"It doesn't seem to be a weapon or eating utensil... perhaps it had some form of religious significance? "

Lizards, Hail

[rebelmouse-image 18357551 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Ok if the scenario is that there was a collapse of civilization, lost lots of knowledge, and then slowly rediscovered it then I think natural history museum would be f-cking bizarre!

Imagine people in the future not knowing what a dinosaur is and the finding out museums! Not knowing what TRex is, and then finding entire buildings, exhibits, and vague shrine like objects dedicated to that beauty.

It would be amazing because it could look like we worshipped dinosaurs or something!

All hail our lizard overlords

Meme Rage

[rebelmouse-image 18349596 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Assuming they can access internet data, memes. None of them make any sense when you think about it

Perfectly Preserved

[rebelmouse-image 18357552 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A McDonald's burger that still hasn't gone bad.

Good Luck

[rebelmouse-image 18357553 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

That upon occasion they would find a severed rabbit's foot attached to keys.

Documentary Or Fiction

[rebelmouse-image 18357554 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Easy.

A single digital photo of Britney Spears' melt-down, bald head.

Were we all hairless?

No context and none of her music survived.

OR...

A public domain copy of "Night Of The Living Dead" (1968). So many copies are out there. Was this how our world came to an end? The undead feating on the living. And could this plague infect this future world?

It's Benz Awhile

[rebelmouse-image 18357556 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

How they made that strange metal in the mercedes Benz hood ornament they found and what strange cult it belonged to and what kind of people worshipped it.

Dark Ages

[rebelmouse-image 18357557 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I think assuming all our computer systems and technologies are destroyed they'll think we lived in some kind of dark ages.

They'll have no way to access our internet or our computer files which will have been long destroyed. Books and newspapers will likely be long since destroyed since they're made of paper. So what will they have to study us by?

WW What

[rebelmouse-image 18357559 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I've always thought if aliens saw videos of professional wrestling they would be so confused; especially WWE wrestler entrances "that man is dead and the lights just went out" "that swamp man just teleported".

One Man's Trash

[rebelmouse-image 18357560 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Landfills.

We throw out so many wonders that people 10,000 years from now could not even dream of. The most reasonable explanation anyone will muster is that they are sacrifices to the weird corporate/cartoon gods they've uncovered. The idea that it's garbage will be perceived as ludicrous.

Thrillseeking

[rebelmouse-image 18357562 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Roller coasters. These big metal tracks that went nowhere fast. Completely useless for practicality and probably won't make sense for entertainment to them.

People collect art for a myriad of reasons. Some might have a particular artist they admire, maybe it's a personal investment, or maybe they want serious bragging rights.

Whatever the reason may be, there are some incredible pieces of art that may never be seen by the public because the value has made it impossible for anyone but the elite to see.

Some collections are valued at $2.2 billion and are spread across over 100 museums and galleries.

But what about the private collections that are never seen by the eyes of the public?

Our past is chock full of "life lessons" that are actually just crap. It's easy to spoon-feed children drivel. They're sponges ready to absorb.

Then those children become adults that require rewiring.

Between culture changes and generations of upheaval, there is a lot that we are left to examine when out in the world. Look at where we are as a society right now. We are stuck in the throes of a culture war stemming from generational misinformation.

So where do we begin?

Redditor Baby_Bella_XX wanted to discuss the information we thought we understood as kids that might require an update. They asked:

What have you had to unlearn from your childhood?
