Archaeologists excavated the skull of a man in Greece (or Italy, I can't remember). He was buried with the golden laurels of an Olympic champion on his head. Through carbon dating and ancient archives of Olympics winners, archaeologists were actually able to determine who the man was by name, and in what sport he won gold. I think he was a boxer. All this to say that I also hope to live a life worth misremembering in 2000 years time.
