Subject: Humor: Early Communications...
After having dug
to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found
traces of a copper-wire system dating back 100 years, and
they came to the
conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network
100 years ago.
Not to be outdone
by New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California
scientists 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 system and have concluded that their
had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred
than the New Yorkers.'
One week later,
'The Redneck Rebel Gazette' in West Virginia reported the
following: After digging as deep as 30 feet in a corn field,
Johnson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found
nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,
West Virginia had
already gone wireless.
