A Tale of Malaysia Boleh

Once upon a time, 20 years ago,

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Brit's, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story was published in the New York Times:

"American archaeologists had found traces of 250-year-old copper wire. They concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the British".

One week later, the Dept of Minerals and Energy in Malaysia, reported the following:

"After digging as deep as 30 feet in North Central Kedah region, Mahathir Mohammed, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Mahathir therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Malaysia had already gone wireless."

Malaysia Boleh!!!
