Makes you proud!
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, Canadian 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 their neighbours, 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:
"United States 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 Canadians".

One week later, English authorities reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in North Yorkshire, Mike Curtis, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.
Jack since concluded that 250 years ago, England had already gone wireless."

Just makes me bloody proud of the English!
