Scotland- Forever at the cutting edge of scientific progress

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, Irish 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 Irish, in the weeks that followed, an English archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the Morning Herald read:"English archaeologists, finding traces of 130-year-old copper wire,have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-techcommunications network 30 years earlier than the Irish".

One week later, the Dundee Courier reported the following:"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Auchtermuchty, Fife, Jimmy McSporran, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f**k all. Jimmy has therefore concluded that 130 years ago, unlike their backward English neighbours, that Scotland had already gone wireless."

Boom, boom......!!
