Greece is on the ‘information highway’…

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on October 10, 2007

Three friends,one American,one French and one Greek are talking about the level of technology at BC ages.
The first to talk is the French guy : “We digged all way across Paris and what did we found?”
“What?” respond the other two
“Plenty of steel-made boxes and antennas – we French had VHF transmitters!!” ,he says full of cheer.
“Ffff” says the American, “that’s nothing.We digged all the way across Washington and what did we found?”
“What?” respond the other two
“Kilometres and kilometres of wire – we Americans had telephone way before Jesus was born!”
Then the Greek guy starts laughing…
“Why are you laughing mate,wtf did you Greeks have?” asked the other two
“See” starts talking the Greek,”we digged all over Greece and we found NOTHING!!!”
“So why are you having fun of us f***er” say the other two
“You stupid people”,answers the Greek,”we Greeks had mobile telephony 2.500 years before!”

Dedicated to a Slovenian friend of mine (you know who you are!) who is over an 10/10 Mbps XDSL connection for 14 Euros/month (approx. $20) when i’m over an 768/192 Kbps ADSL for 21 Euros/month (approx. $29)…

Also dedicated to the Greek government and it’s (or pretending to be) Prime Minister who declared that “Greece is on the ‘information highway'” leaving those who know what’s the internet reality in Greece speechless… (and inspired me for the title!)
