Title: Thank the Brits for comedy
Post by: Robert Bruce on October 13, 2011, 02:47:46 PM
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, German 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 Germans, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet and, shortly afterwards, a story was 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 Germans".

One week later, the Council in Swakopmund , reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet at Swakopmund , Jack Lucklow, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f *ck all. Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Namibia had already gone wireless."

Just makes you bloody proud to be Namibian.
