After having dug to a depth of 1000 meters last year, Scottish 
scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years and 
came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone 
network more than 1000 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English 
scientists dug to a depth of 2000 meters and shortly thereafter 
reported in the UK newspapers that their archaeologists have found 
traces of 2000 year old fibre-optic cable and have concluded that their 
ancestors already had an advanced high-tech digital communications 
network a thousand years earlier than the Scots.

One week later, Irish newspapers reported the following: After 
digging as deep as 5000 meters in a County Cork bog, Irish 
scientists have found absolutely nothing.

They, therefore, immediately concluded that 5000 years ago, 
Ireland's inhabitants were already using wireless technology.

Happy Friday,
