After digging to a depth of 10 feet last year outside Buffalo, New York, scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They 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, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly afterward, a story in the LA Times read, "California archaeologists, reporting a finding of 200 year old copper cable, 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 Dallas Texas reported, "After digging 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Sherman, Texas , Ole Olson, a heck of an engineer and a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless."

Just makes a person proud to be from Texas!

Don't get too cocky... sounds like typical, southern creationist-style "logic", and no one's buying that nonsense, either... grin

Of course... most people find the notion of Texas "logic" to be rather hysterical. grin
