pressure from the dyslexic asian community has shut down that horribly racist magazine!

Eh,either way it's just going to end up in your dentist's waiting room. Does anyone else get magazine subscriptions anymore?

National Geographic.

Top Gear is good too, most of its content isn't on the internet for free except for individual car tests. Its one of the few titles to get that right.

To be fair, Car and Driver is a good magazine.
 
2012-12-25 12:10:16 PM
The link on the page, to ad fails, is better.

Came to say the same thing. I enjoy C&D.

National Geographic, plus I picked up a digital subscription to FourFourTwo with a gift certificate to World Soccer Shop I got as an early present.

Very good. I subscribe to two magazines, National Geographic and Car and Driver. They are of equal quality in their respective areas.

/yes I just said Car and Driver is as good as NG
//yes I still subscribe to hard copies of magazines

Smithsonian.

Air & Space Smithsonian.

American Heritage Invention & Technology, but I think they've stopped publishing.

Spin was still around until recently?

Newsweek and Spin are dead, local papers everywhere going away.

Wonder what we are going to use as kindling to start bonfires in the future.

//Probably yellow pages. No matter what, the phone company will not make those go away.

I dropped my sub to C&D a few years ago.  Sadly, the magazine dumped all the good writers and eliminated the snark, which was what made the magazine so good.

Once in a while now I'll thumb thru a copy to see if it's changed, it hasn't.

Yup.  Discover, Adirondack Life, Popular Mechanics and Popular Science (and my mother insists on buying me NYS Conservationist for Christmas every year).  I don't have to worry about getting them wet when I set them next to the sink in the bathroom, I can haul them to the beach or take them on vacation, I can read them as I fall asleep and let them fall on the floor, and I get all their online extras on the iPad.  The iPad doesn't work real well at the cabin, it doesn't like water, and it really doesn't like it when I drop it on the floor when I fall asleep.

I haven't read an issue of Spin in 20 years. For some unexplainable reason my high school carried it in their periodical section

My high school carried quite a few magazines that surprised me. When I asked the librarian she pointed out she didn't care what kids were reading as long as they were trading.

Reading, not trading. Stupid autocorrect.

34 front, 36 rear for the Michelins. 34 front, 38 rear for the Pirellis on the street - 30 front, 28 rear on the track.

Hey, it's important to know these things.

Magazines about music are like braille essays about colors anyway. Rolling Stone's only saving grace these days is Matt Tabbai's coverage of Wall Street.

I just renewed my Popular Science Subscription though June of MMXVI.
