    honestly that message sounds like some kind of amazing weapon is buried there if I was a warlord or something I might want to dig for it

    "I've got it, to prevent future civilizations from getting curious, we should build massive stone monoliths carved with hieroglyphics that detail a cryptic danger buried beneath. Surely nobody would ever try to figure out what the horrible thing buried here is".

    The warning should be “If you dig here. You’re gay.”

    Just name the site Flint Michigan and I'm pretty sure any government will forget about it if not ignore it.

    Better message: “This is the storage site of dangerous material. It hurts you by emitting energy you can not see, can not hear, can not smell, can not feel, and can not taste. The material is waste and presents nothing to you but danger. It can’t even be weaponized. We have sealed away this waste and contained it’s harmful properties but the possibility of a leak still remains. It is best to leave this place abandoned.”

    I love how the message isn't even written in simple English

    "The form of the danger is an emanation of energy. The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place." I cannot think of a better way to peak someone's curiosity.

    Generally accurate, but very selective use of facts. The reason why the rods are in temporary storage is because they have value for future energy generation, in summery when we run out of Uranium we can reprocess the rods and get more energy.

    That warning just sounds too much like the Ancient Egyptian warnings which we completely ignored.
