Early Telephone Systems

30 01 2009

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 in California, an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet. Shortly after, 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 the New Yorkers.”

One week later, The Sentinel, a local newspaper in Pennsylvania, reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near the Juniata River, in Lewistown, PA., Bubba Mitchell, a self-taught archaeologist and graduate of Slippery Rock University, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 Years ago, Pennsylvania had already gone wireless.”

Thank God for Bubba.
Who said Pennsylvanians were hicks?
