Yeah, I know what you’re gonna say. Everybody’s got a stack of magazines in there, it’s downright traditional. So what’s the big deal, Joel?
I dunno. Maybe it’s just that I don’t carry those magazines around anywhere else. Gods know I’m no germaphobe. I make my living from horse shit, fergoshsake. Even I don’t know why I find this so disturbing.
Maybe it’s not what it says about hygiene, but about compulsiveness. There’s always been something addictive about being online, and most of us just sort of accept that and move on. But this does seem to take it that one step too far.
