Texas Technology


After having dug to a depth of 100 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1,000 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 1,000 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug to a depth of 200 meters. A few days later, headlines in the UK newspapers read: "English archaeologists have found traces of 2,000 year old copper wire and have concluded that our ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a thousand years earlier than the Scots."

One week later, Texas newspapers reported the following: "After digging as deep as 500 meters in West Texas, scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have therefore concluded that 5,000 years ago Texas inhabitants were already using wireless technology.
