Back to the Future

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 conclusiontheir 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 traces of 200 year old copper wire.

Conclusion: their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.'

One week later, The La Crosse Tribune, a local newspaper in Wisconsin, reported the following:

After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Coon Valley Wisconsin, Ole Olson, a "self-taught archaeologist", reported that he found absolutely nothing.

Ole has therefore concluded, 300 years ago,Wisconsin had already gone wireless.

Thank Heaven for Ole .The truth is now known.
