Recent Findings

After having dug to a depth of 10 meters 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,
California scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and 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, "Moose Jaw Times Herald", a local newspaper in
Saskatchewan reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 meters in sagebrush fields near Moose Jaw,
Ole Johnson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely
nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Saskatchewan had
already gone wireless.
