They take up ALOT of space in my garage.
I wish I
had a garage.
Tell you what though, if I did
have a garage, I would use it to store something more useful to me than old magazines.

Here's a peek at the road ahead:
A Bronx man trapped for two days under an avalanche of newspapers, magazines and books
was rescued by firefighters and neighbors yesterday in a small urban drama that recalled the macabre 1947 tale of the Collyer brothers.
The victim, Patrice Moore, 43, of 1991 Morris Avenue, near Tremont Avenue, was found shortly after 1 p.m. in a 10-by-10-foot room crammed with paper and other detritus that completely filled it, except for a small corner where he slept, neighbors and city officials said.
A reclusive man who lived alone and had been saving magazines, newspapers, books, catalogs and junk mail for a decade - and had apparently thrown none of it out - Mr. Moore was buried standing up
under the collapse on Saturday, according to neighbors, who heard him moaning and mumbling through the door, which had been blocked by all the paper.
The landlord broke in with a crowbar and neighbors began digging into the entombing piles of publications, communications and advertisements.
Calls to the city brought the police, three companies of firefighters, health and buildings officials, and officials from the Office of Emergency Management.
It took more than an hour to extricate Mr. Moore - 50 garbage bags of his paper had to be hauled out just to reach him
- and he was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with leg injuries, apparently the result of the weight that fell on him and the fluid that accumulated in his legs during his captivity. He was reported in stable condition last night, a hospital spokesman said.
Caroline Gorynski, 88, was found dead in a first-floor bedroom of her Yonkers home, in a middle-class neighborhood near the New York City line. Her husband, Leo, 87, was found in a front hallway and died at a hospital, police said.
The fire started when space heaters ignited some of the clothing, papers and other material piled 5 feet high throughout the house, said Deputy Fire Chief John Flynn. He said some clothing lay directly on top of the heaters.
The clutter created hazardous conditions for firefighters, Flynn said.
"The debris was piled higher than their heads," he said. "There were just little narrow alleyways for them to crawl through as they searched the building."
Firefighters called it a "Collyers' mansion," Flynn said, alluding to Homer and Langley Collyer, brothers who were found dead in a Harlem brownstone in 1947 amid tons of junk they had amassed over decades.
