After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists
found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the
conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more
than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the British , in the weeks that followed, an
American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a
story published in the New York Times: "American archaeologists, finding
traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors
already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years
earlier than the British".

One week later, Australia's Northern Territory Times , reported the
following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Tennant
Creek , Northern Territory, Billi Bunji, a self-taught archaeologist,
reported that he found absolutely f-all. Billi has therefore concluded
that 250 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless."

  But it  makes ya feel bloody proud to be Australian!

Brainless Bugger Billi Bunji.
If only he had have dug just another 10 feet, he would have found we had
actually gone wireless 300 years ago.
