Future Perfect Tense

To the knights in the days of yore,

Keeping watch on the mountain heights,

Came a vision of h2g2 lore,

And a voice through the waiting night. . .

Okay, we paraphrase, so what else is new? The voice is saying, of course, 'Ignore that Grail-shaped beacon. Camelot is a silly place, anyway. Follow the Post logo, instead.' Good advice this week.

We hope you have been enjoying the end-of-year jollifications where you are, and that you will party heartily but responsibly with the beverage of your choice on New Year's Eve.

In the meantime, here is all manner of cleverness from our writers to entertain you. Want to look back at the past year? Check. Want to peer forward into the future? Our crystal balls have been cleaned with Windex, and the Prof's proposing fog lamps. Wonder what prognosticators of the past did wrong? Have we got stories to tell you. In fact, this very week, we're starting a brand-new, ground-breaking project: a Guide Entry, well sort of, in comic form, on the subject of paranormal phenomena.

Look into our eyes. You are getting the urge to read. . . read. . . read. . . resistance is futile. . .

Dmitri Gheorgheni






  • Let me look into my crystal ball.
  • Uh-huh, make your own caption.
