- Friends, a good laugh before Christmas:
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists
found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the
conclusion, that their ancestors already had a telephone network more
than 100 years ago.
Not to be out-done by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed,
in California an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly
after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: ' California
archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have
concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech
communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'
One week later, a local newspaper in Texas , reported the following:
After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Cut-n-Shoot,
Montgomery County, Texas , Bubba Rathbone, a self-taught archaeologist,
reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded
that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless.
Good ol' Bubba !
