From the Annals of an Advanced Civilization

Back in January the "New Orleans Times Picayune" reported that a Cajun amateur archeologist had dug to a depth of 10 feet and 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 Cajuns, in the weeks that followed, Texas scientists dug to a depth of 20 feet. Shortly after The Dallas Morning News reported that: "Texas archaeologists have found traces of 200-year old copper wire, and concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network one hundred years earlier than the Cajuns."

One week later, West Virginia's "The Grant County Press" reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 feet in fields near Cabins, WV, Bubba Williams, a self-taught archeologist, reported that he had found absolutely nothing. Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago in West Virginia they were already using wireless."
