News Briefs 31-12-2019

It’s the last Grail news briefs of the 2010s! We hope your New Year’s celebrations can be measured on the David Lynch scale

Thanks to @UnlikelyWorlds, @Fortean_UK, @DelicateBliss and @Trevor_Pyne.

Quote of the Day:

Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier’.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

  1. RIP Syd Mead but also RIP Neil Innes. The latter a founding member of The Bonzo Dog Doh-Dah Band. He also worked with comedy show Do Not Adjust Your Set. Which in turn led him to work with Monty Python. It is he who sings the song The Tale of Brave Sir Robin in Holy Grail. He also co-founded The Rutles with Eric Idle.

  2. And in the end???

    I know I’m a week late, but when did the AND IN THE END News Brief for the last day of the year stop? Always looked forward to it and the April 1st prank. I know the April 1st prank ended several years ago, but where’s AND IN THE END? 🙂

    Seriously, thanks for the site. Happy to be a patreon supporter.

      1. Hi Greg,

        Maybe I’ve got it all wrong, but I thought it was tradition that the last brief of the year spells out AND IN THE END with the first letter of the description of the news story? Always assumed that AND IN THE END came from The End by The Beatles. Something like this.

        Are apes really just monkeys on steroids?
        Nine out of ten Grail readers love the dark theme
        Dinosaurs, overrated or victims of global warming?
        Ice melting in Antarctica at faster than predicted rate…
        Near death experiences are brains last grasps on life
        Tesla, the unrecognized genius of his time
        Howard the Duck fights crime in the 1700s
        Evidence of water spouts on Europa adds credibility to potential life
        Europa’s water spouts contain amino acids furthing hope for life
        Not one of these story descriptions are real, just for depicting AND IN THE END
