Am I to understand this ad correctly? For $99, you can get a lifetime subscription to Rolling Stone? What's the catch here?

the catch is you get Rolling Stone delivered to your house.

The catch is that since they make money from advertising, not cover price, they need your eyeballs more than your crummy pocket change.

Here, search ebay for subscriptions and you won't pay more than $1/year.

After all, you might live 99 years, but Jann Wenner probably won't.

one month passes...
Can you cancel it?

In a few years I might have kids, and by then every cover will just be a photo of some starlet's gaping vagina. And, like, I'd like them to learn about sex the old fashioned way, through innuendo.

99 Bucks! Y'all are a bunch of chumps-- just wait 'till the next economic bust. After the dot com bubble burst, I got an in the mail offer for a 50 year sub for 50 bucks. hard to turn that one down, so I didn't.
