• New evidence of wireless way before our time

    14 Jan 2008

    This is something that’s been out there for a while, but when my Canadian colleague, security guru, and all-around good guy Peter Davis forwarded it to me, I laughed out loud. Had to share it:

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

    Not to be outdone by the Americans, in the weeks that followed, Canadian scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the Toronto Globe and Mail newspaper read: “Canadian 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 Americans.”

    One week later, “Moose Jaw Times Herald”, a local newspaper in Saskatchewan reported the following:
    “After digging as deep as 30 meters in sagebrush fields near Moose Jaw, Ole Johnson, a self-taught archaeologist, reports that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Saskatchewan had already gone “wireless.”
