The First Internet Nation

Some COUNTRY_A scientists were digging 50 meters under the ground. They were surprised to discover small pieces of copper. They studied the copper pieces very carefully and concluded that 25,000 years ago, there was already a nationwide Internet Connection in ancient COUNTRY_A. They reported this in IHQ (Internet History Quarterly), a first-tier scientific journal.

When COUNTRY_B scientists heard the COUNTRY_A announcement, they were just not impressed. They immediately embarked on a project to dig even deeper. When they had dug down to 100 meters, they found small pieces of glass. They studied the glass pieces very carefully and concluded that 35,000 years ago, there was a nationwide fiber-optic Internet used by the ancient COUNTRY_B.

COUNTRY_C scientists were enraged when they learned of the COUNTRY_A and COUNTRY_B claims. They decided to dig 50 meters, 100 meters, 150 meters under the ground in the Capital. But unfortunately, they found nothing whatsoever. Nevertheless, they concluded that 55,000 years ago, the ancient COUNTRY_C was already using wireless technology.

To show off, the scientists in COUNTRY_C have invited all scientists in the under-developing countries to conduct a study about "Internet 55000 years ago". The result will be published in the coming IHQ.


This is an urban legend, and not mine, obviously.

This is HOW Me Do IT! Grrr... this blog memo is mainly written for OWN PURPOSES. This post is based on "Google There, Google Here, Try That, Try This, Then Ask". Whether this is PLAGIARY or RESEARCH, there has never been a claim that this is an original work, nor is it necessarily the best solution, and not for Scopus consumption :). Please provide feedback, especially if you have alternative explanations. Hopefully, this note will be helpful in the future when you have forgotten how to solve this trivia problem.


INIlah yang KUlakukan! Grrr... memo blog ini terutama ditulis untuk KEPERLUAN SENDIRI. Tulisan ini berbasis "Google Sana, Google Sini, Coba Itu, Coba Ini, Lalu Tanya-tanyi". Entah ini PLAGIAT, entah ini RISET, yang jelas tidak pernah ada klaim bahwa ini merupakan karya asli, serta belum tentu pula merupakan solusi terbaik, serta bukan untuk konsumsi Scopus :). Mohon kiranya memberikan tanggapan, terutama jika memiliki solusi alternatif. Semoga catatan ini akan bermanfaat di masa mendatang, saat sudah lupa cara menyelesaikan masalah trivia ini.
