A grizzled old man was eating in a truck stop when three very large, leathered bikers walked in. The first walked up to the old man, pushed his cigarette into the old man’s pie and then took a seat at the counter. The second walked up to the old man, spat into the old man’s milk and then he too took a seat at the counter. The third walked up to the old man, turned over the old man’s plate, and then he took a seat at the counter.
Without a word of protest, the old man quietly left the diner. Shortly thereafter, one of the bikers said to the waitress, “Humph, not much of a man, was he?”
The waitress replied, “Not much of a truck driver either, he just backed his big-rig over three motorcycles.”
After digging to a depth of 100 metres last year, Russian scientists found traces of copper wiring dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that Russia had a telephone network one thousand years ago.
So as not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed, American scientists dug down 300 metres, and headlines in the US newspapers read: “US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibres, and have concluded that early Americans had advanced high-tech digital telephones 000 years earlier than the Russians.”
One week later, the Greek press reported the following: “After digging as deep as 500 metres, a Greek scientists has found absolutely nothing. They have concluded that 5000 years ago the Greeks were already using mobile phones.
