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 outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a
California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a
Story in the LA Times read: " California archaeologists, finding of 200
year old copper wire, 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 Maypearl , Texas ,
Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely
nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,
Texas had already gone wireless".

Just makes a person proud to live in Texas , don't it ?
