Wireles Telecom History
(Got this from a mailing list, It’s worth reading im tellin’ you…)
After digging to a depth of 100 meters last year, Japanese scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years ago.
In the weeks that followed, American scientists dug 200 metres and headlines in the US papers read:
“US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibres, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephone 1000 years earlier than the Japanese”.
One week later, a Filipino newspaper reported the following:
“After digging as deep as 500 metres, Filipino scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their ancestors were already using wireless technology”.
