    Proud to be Australian

    Post by Gypsy on Fri 15 Jul 2016 - 9:02

    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, aboriginal Billi Bunji, a self-taught archaeologist, reported
    that he found absolutely feck-all.
    Billi has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already
    gone wireless..."
