Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.

Wireless, of course!

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, Australian scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Aussies, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet and, shortly after, a story was published in the New York Times: "American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the Australians".

One week later, the Council in Manchester, reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet in Rochdale, Jack Smith, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he had found 'absolutely nothing'. Jack has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Lancashire had already gone wireless."

Just makes you proud to be British!
