Cable Found:
After digging to a depth of 10 feet last year outside Buffalo, New York, scientists found traces of copper  cable dating back 100 years. They 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 Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly afterward, a story in the LA Times read,   "California archaeologists, reporting a finding of 200 year old copper cable, 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 Omaha Nebraska reported, "After digging 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Ainsworth, Nebraska, Ole Olson, a heck of an engineer and a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he  found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,Nebraska had already gone wireless."

Just makes a person proud to be from Nebraska.
