Popular Mechanics once had a small ad in their listings section:

"One small ad pays all my bills. Send $1 for details."
I find it amazing that you have copy of the ad, I think that was you.

Look at any of the old ad's from teh 40's, 50's 60's. it was always about saving money, learning a new skill, being your own boss.
Save gas when it was $0.15 a gallon, sharpen saw blades or repair radios or tv's, have your own saw mill, repair cars.......

Those ad's were run because they worked. Whatever it cost ro run an ad back then must have paid off many times over for bird house plans or whatever.

Now it's just buy and consume.

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied the
survivors of a sinking ship.
"Follow me son" the father shark said and they swam to the mass of people.
"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fin showing."
And they did.
"Well done son, now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing."
And they did.
"Now we eat everybody." And they did.
When they were both gorged, the son asked "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all first?
Why did we swim around them?"
His wise father said "Because they taste better if you scare the crap out of them first."
