Let's see 4.99 per mag? If so 7x5 is 35x1000 is 35000-(7000x0.01) which is £34930 you could by a decent yacht and a new ceiling for that!

I rebuilt a house a couple of years ago following a major fire. The hall, stairs and three floors were piled high with books, mags and newspapers, all stacked up. The newspapers in the second bedroom weighed nearly 6 tons! (the floor still held the weight)
