T Nation

Why is There No T-Nation Paper Mag?

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a pretty fanatical T-Nation reader, and I would not hesitate to pay for a print edition of T-Nation. After all, it wouldn’t be like your typical Muscle & Fiction rag where you’re just being fed a bunch of crap. I’d easily pay like $25 per issue if it was decently thick.

I always have a ton of interesting books and magazines lying around for my visitors to check out, and I feel that a T-Nation magazine would fit in really well with my collection.

So, why isn’t there a paper edition? :)[/quote]

I have a better idea. Rather than going to the store and buying your red meat, how about you go to a cattle farm, kill the fucker with your bare hands, drag it to the butchers, skin and fillet it yourself, grind up what isnt suitable for steaks, THEN fire up your grill.

for fucks sake please THINK before you post. just a little.

how? newspapers are failing left and right. its much more viable to have an online base, why go pay 5 bucks a magazine and wait monthly for it when you can check online from your iPhone while you take a dump?[/quote]

Go look at Lulu and Magcloud, publish-on-demand services. That means that cost per issue is higher to the consumer but there is no starting fee to print stuff for the content producer.

On another note, I think I’m in love…

How about a compromise, we pay for a full color supplement in print that is made entirely of hot babe pictures(heavy guage cum resistent pages) and the rest of the content stays free and online?

There, fixed.[/quote]

Ya I prefer your idea.

Oh my God. Reading T-Nation and pooping. Two of my absolute most favorite activities of all time, AT THE SAME TIME. Makes me wish I had to poop right now. =(

Thanks for the inspiration, 781.

I can’t stand reading articles on a computer screen. It really bugs my eyes and makes me lose interest. Print articles would be great, but it won’t obviously ever happen.

I also have a few. That’s how I learned about Old Fashioned Oatmeal and Cottage Cheese being such great foods. Have been eating both every day ever since.

Really? that was the muchly edited version. I was so proud I swore only twice. Had to get up and walk away to keep myself from bitch slapping the monitor though. I forget sometimes that dumb people are not the fault of my computer.

Print is quickly disappearing. I doubt it.
