Last year, after having dug to a depth of 5 metres, Canadian archaeologists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years.

They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago !

Not to be outdone by their neighbours, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 10 metres. Shortly afterwards, a story was published in the New York Times:
"American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire at a depth of 10 metres, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the Canadians" !

A week later, British authorities reported the following:

"After digging to a depth of 20 metres in Yorkshire, Jack Arkwright, self-taught archaeologist reported that he had found, "absolutely nothingl" !

Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Yorkshire had already gone wireless"
.
"Do not follow where the path may lead, Go instead where there is no path, and Leave a Trail."
