Wireless in Missouri

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City , New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100
years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago. 

Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that  followed, a
 Los Angeles , California archaeologist dug to a depth  of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside . Shortly after, a story in the LA  Times read: " California archaeologists report a finding of 200 year old copper  cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech  communications network a hundred years earlier than the New  Yorkers." 
One week later, a local newspaper in Ironton , MO reported the following: "After digging down about 30 feet deep in his  pasture near the community of Pilot Knob, Bubba, a self-taught archaeologist  reported that he found absolutely nothing. Bubba therefore concluded that 300  years ago, Missouri had already gone wireless".


Just makes a person proud to be from Missouri..........

What do you think they would find at 40 feet?

Knowing Southeastern Missouri, wouldn't surprise if some moonshine was found. LOL
