The History of Phones
After digging to a depth of 100m last year, Russian scientists found traces of copper wiring dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network 1000 years ago.
So as not to be outdome, in the weeks that followed, Americal scientists dug down 200m and the headlines in the UA newspapers read "US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optic fibres, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephones 1000 years earlier than the Russians"
One week later, the Irish press reported the following: "After digging as deep as 500m, Irish scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their ancestors were already using mobile phones."
