New York, New York
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.
Los Angeles, California
Not to be out-done by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed in
southern California, an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet and
shortly after the headlines in the LA Times newspaper read: "California
archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have
concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech
communications network a hundred years earlier than New York."
One week later, a local newspaper in south Louisiana reported the
following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near
Carencro, (Lafayette Parish, Louisiana), T-Boy Boudreaux, a self-taught
archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing! T-Boy has
therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Cajuns had already gone wireless."
