Title: For the Aussies on OZ day

COPPER WIRE

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 Brits, 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, the state?s Dept of Minerals and Energy in Western Australia , reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet in Western Australia ?s Pilbara region, Jack Lucknow, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.  Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless."

Just makes you bloody proud to be Australian.

Cheers

BUGGA, had to work today so I could get Friday off to go to a funeral.
Seems I'm going to more of those than parties these days.
Still got 5 hours of Aussie day left, so that's at least 10 pints. *smile*
Cheers
