Copper wire

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists

found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion

that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years

ago.

Not to be outdone by the British, in the weeks that followed, an American

archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story

published in the New York Times: “American archaeologists, finding traces of

250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an

advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the

British”.

One week later, Australia’s Northern Territory Times, reported the

following:

“After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Tennant Creek,

Northern Territory, aboriginal Billi Bunji, a self-taught archaeologist,

reported that he found absolutely Sweet fuck all.

Billi has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already

gone wireless…”

Makes me feel bloody proud to be Australian!
