A false rumour that entrenched as truth in poor rural-majority countries
In Egypt farmers believe a hot-air balloon that lands on their field brings good luck. They would, wouldn't they - it brings them instant compensation from the balloon owner. It's a contrived rural myth to disguise their greed. So for rural myth read rural math, you know, as opposed to urban math.
