German scientists dug 50 meters underground and discovered small
pieces of copper. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany
announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nationwide
telephone network.

Naturally, the British government was not that easily impressed. They
ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. 100 meters down, they
found small pieces of glass, and they soon announced that the ancient
Brits 35,000 years ago already had a nationwide fibre net.

Sri Lankan scientists were outraged. They dug 50, 100 and 200 meters
underground, but found absolutely nothing... They concluded that the
ancient Sri Lankans 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones.
