Proud to be a Texan

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 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 Texas reported the
following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in a pasture
between Fort Worth and Weatherford, Texas Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Texas had already gone wireless.”

Just makes you proud to be a Texan doesn’t it?
