When was the telephone invented?
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 out-done by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, in California an archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, 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, a local newspaper in Texas, reported the following:
After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Cut-n-Shoot, Montgomery County, Texas, Bubba Rathbone, a self-taught archaeologist,
reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless.
Thank God for Bubba.
Those TEXANS are an intelligent bunch……
