Anyway, they provide certain amenities for the customers who wait, like free coffee, and popcorn, and, of course, magazines to read. This was the selection on the table in front of where I sat.
I did not pick the Deer Hunter magazine, nor did I pick the Cosmo. I did, however, take the Fitness and started leafing through the pages. For those who've never looked at one, at least 90% of the content is Supplement ads; page after page after page. The articles are written with simple one and two syllable words. One that caught my eye was "Cycling causes Erectile Dysfunction." I ride bicycle and have never had this problem. And, of course, the article actually said that some men, over 50 years of age, who go on bicycle rides over 50 miles in length, have occasionally reported this problem, but that there was no substantial proof that this was true. That's when I realized it was only filler taking up space between Supplement ads. The headline should have been enough to warn me it was just fluff, it included the word 'dysfunction' and that's 3 syllables.
