    After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York Scientists
    found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and 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 California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and
    shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: "California
    archaeologists, finding of 200 year old copper wire, 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 Maine reported the
    following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture in Aroostook
    County, Maine, Bud, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found
    absolutely nothing. Bud has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,
    Maine had already gone wireless".

    Just makes a person proud to live in Maine, don't it.
