Thinking About Science

When I returned from the latest Educational SIG meeting this morning I found this from a friend I just had to share given the discussion is about "How to Think Like a Scientist." My apologies to those from Georgia (or New York or California for that matter).

Science

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 Atlanta, Georgia reported the following: "After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Marietta, Bubba, a hell of an engineer and, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.

Bubba has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Georgia had already gone wireless".

Just makes a person proud to be from Georgia .
