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 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 South Carolina reported the
following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in a field near
Conway, SC, Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that
he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300
years ago, South Carolina had already gone wireless."
Just makes you proud to live in South Carolina , doesn't it?
