That is probably the most unique solution I've heard all day, and probably 
all year. :-)

If one could transcribe the bar-code to granite (and it's possible), you 
could have something that would last close to 30,000 years before gradually 
turning into clay. Who'd read it then, or how, I couldn't rightly say. ;-)
