Nebraska Technology

After having dug to a depth of 10 yards last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their New York ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, California scientists dug to a depth of 20 yards, and shortly after, headlines in the LA Times newspaper read:
‘California archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have
concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network
a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.’

One week later, the Lincoln Journal Star, a local news paper in Lincoln , Nebraska reported the following:

‘After digging as deep as 30 yards in a corn field near Milford, NE, Larry the Cable Guy, a self-taught archaeologist and dyed-in-the-wool Husker fan, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Larry has therefore concluded that 300 years ago,  Nebraska had already gone wireless.’
