    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 Brit's, 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, Canadian Dept. of Mines and Resources in Northern Canada reported the following:
    "After digging as deep as 30 feet in Northern Canada in the Ontario region of Thunder Bay
    Jack Lucknow, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.
    Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Canada had already gone wireless."

    Just makes me bloody proud to be Canadian, eh!
