The Top 50 Most Popular Daily Grail Stories of 2014 (#50 - #26)

Top 50 Daily Grail Articles of 2014, 50 - 26

Here at The Daily Grail we certainly don't measure the worth of a story by its popularity (the world has enough clickbait rubbish without us adding to it). But given we don't go out of our way to entice readers to our articles - apart from simply trying to write something interesting - the popularity of each post does provide one rough way of picking out a segment of 'good reads' for an end of year summary (from the 600+ posts in total over the course of 2014). So over the next two days, without claiming the placing reflects the worth of any particular post, I'll post the top 50 most popular stories on The Daily Grail this year, so readers can catch up on some fascinating posts they might have missed. Today, here's #50 down to #26:

  4. Review: Interstellar
  5. Australian UFOs, More Than 100 Years Ago
  6. New Research Suggests Autistic Savants May Have Enhanced Telepathic Abilities
  7. Consecration of the Host - You Are Legion, For You Are Many

It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

It's beginning to look a lot like...something.

Quote of the Day:

If you deny my request for a pardon, I will serve my time knowing that sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society. I will gladly pay that price if it means we could have a country that is truly conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all women and men are created equal.

Quote of the Day:

Here's what we can do to change the world right now to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defence each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded.

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.
