After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 200 years. They came to the conclusion their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 200 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles , California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside . Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: "California archaeologists report a finding of 300 year old copper cable, 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 Cumming, Georgia reported the following: "After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Deep Step, Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 400 years ago, Georgia had already gone wireless".
Just makes me so proud to be from Georgia!
Tom (... proud, I tell ya!)
