Beer, as everyone knows, is an alcoholic beverage and as such, if consumed too heartily, can lead to inebriation. For a serious beer-lover, one who enjoys the flavors of a well-crafted beer along with the company of good friends, drunken stupor is not the goal. Nonetheless, during the months of December through March, becoming legal pissed (that’s British for drunk), is a far too common occurrence.

The seven words which will leave any newspaper stone dead in the digital age

David Higgerson

As we reach the end of 2014, you’d think we’d be past this. But no, apparently not.

“For the Full Story, see tomorrow’s newspaper.”

Now, what do you think happened, seeing as I live maybe a good distance away from the nearest shop selling that paper, but close enough to be of interest to advertisers?

Did I think ‘this is a great story, I must jump in my car, drive 10 miles in the hope the two copies of the paper the newsagent gets in every day won’t have gone?’ or I did flip over to Google News and search for the story there?
