These seem like jokes, fake history. But in fact, when I was at the 
Dayton Hamfest one year in the 1990's, an airplane flew over the event 
and dropped flyers - with real $1 bills attached! I saw the airplane, 
saw the drop, grabbed a few flyers; so there's no doubt.

Of course, people forget that "catching eyeballs" is a source of income 
on the Web. Google reported billions of dollars just today, income from 
selling ads and Web-search placements. So: money gets spent on 
advertizing; and location matters.
