I always buy mine at the drug store. Because they have drugs.

What's wrong with having Bill Nye on the cover? And why would somebody create a new account just to bitch about a magazine they aren't subscribing to?

I thought believers in the paranormal liked Bill Nye, the Séance Guy...
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Ohhhh, I thought he was being self-deprecatingly sarcastic. Like, "Hey, my numbers got drawn in the lottery! Looks like I picked a good month to stop buying the ticket."
