A yank and a Brit in a pub are boosting about the different level of technology in the respective countries.
the yank boasts " Our archiologists during an excavation dug down 20 feet and found copper traces. that proves that over a hundred years before the telegraphe we were using cooper cables for telecommunication."
The brit answers " thats nothing. Outside london we dug down 50 feet and found traces of glass which proves that over 400 years ago we were using fiber optics."
A paddy sitting in the corner starts laughing. seeing this the two ask him whats up. taking a drink of his his guinness he answers. " Well, a couple of years ago I was on a dig where we dug down 100 foot and we found nothing!"
"So?" said the other two.
" Isn't it obivious. It means a 1000 years ago in ireland we were already using wireless."
\"America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.\"
\"The reason we are so pleased to find other people\'s secrets is that it distracts public attention from our own.\"
