Butfor’s Trickery Returns
BJ the Gozerian

Trickery abounds I say! And I will bite my thumb at all those who don’t. Bite it I shall. Until it bleeds. Wait, who is really getting the last laugh in this situation. I’m confused. Ha, what did I say, trickery, that’s what I said, I say! Trying to confuse the rest of the crowd, The Empire Strikes Butfor posited such a brain ball buster (what’s a butfor?) that they thought it would carry them through to that brass ring on the carousel of quiz. Unfortunately, one team was able to sally forth, unencumbered by that most epic of conundrums, and breezed past with a 3 point cushion. That team was Running Start to the

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. But I can sell your house and help you buy a new one, because I'm a REALTOR (all caps because I can). You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Las Vegas Nap Time
Dustin

Large and lively. Loud, but not too loud, and fun. That would describe the gaggle of geeks who descended down upon the Cedar Hills Pizza Schmizza. And thanks for asking after my well being as I did go off on a 3 day Las Vegas adventure last weekend. And as you all saw, yes I did survive. I did return alive and well. Largely unscathed and mostly un-bankrupt. I learned a couple of things from that trip. 1: As I am engaged to be married later this year, we did get a lot of silly 'so are you guys eloping' questions from just about everywhere. Even our families who should know us better. So perhaps we did take a selfie or 3 in front of a few Vegas area wedding chapels which we then posted

You always hold your breath when asking any questions about politics in Arizona
Dee Naps

It could truly go really wrong, the trick is to immediately use your powers of deflection and bring up a universally loved topics like how good the drinks at your venue are or how much better a hotdog covered in bacon tastes. Then you take your personal opinion that you came up with on your own through research and personal experience and You don’t harass anyone with it. If you ever want to have a civilized discussion about it with someone of an extremely separate opinion you listen share your point stay calm, use your coping skills to control your emotions and after google faith in humanity posts.

Nicknames are Hard

There’s a lot of history on May 5. I mean I suppose there is a lot of history on every day. On this day in 1961, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, Navy Commander Alan Bartlett Shepard Jr. is launched into space aboard the Freedom 7 space capsule, becoming the first American astronaut to travel into space. The suborbital flight, which lasted 15 minutes and reached a height of 116 miles into the atmosphere, was a major triumph for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). In 1821, Napoleon Bonaparte, the former French ruler who once ruled an empire that stretched across Europe, dies as a British prisoner on the remote island of Saint Helena in the southern Atlantic

Definitive Proof That The Zodiac Killer Is Not Who We Think He Is
David Mitchell

Good evening ladies and gentlemen,   I know round three was fun and we learned a lot about supposed Zodiac Killer, Ted Cruz. And I know I said some things about Ted Cruz actually being the Zodiac Killer, but I'd like to apologize to Zodiac, he doesn't deserve that- no one deserves that. Ted Cruz absolutely, 100% is not actually the Zodiac Killer. First of all, Ted Cruz was born in Calgary in 1970, which is after the Zodiac Killer had already started killing people.    Okay, so maybe the Zodiac Killer could have built a time machine, and travelled back in time to commit those murders, but in the time frame that Ted Cruz could have

Okay, Time To Go Over The Rules Again...
StorySlug

Since some of you are new, let me re-iterate. You can only Joker once.  So many of you new guys seem to think that you can just Joker on every round.  But if every round is a Joker, no one is. Don't sing along. It tips off the other teams.  And... annoys me. Don't be an idiot.  Rounds 2 and 8 are worth double points.  Jokering on any other round is just dumb. Don't shout out the answers.  This goes for the bonus questions too, okay? Trump Joke knows what I'm talking about, which is why they won.  See you next week!

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.

In Which I Get Political. So Your Average Thursday
AB Baby

Thank you all for coming to quiz last night! As always, it was a highlight of my week. Especially the part when I gave the clue "It's either a circuit-breaking electrical component, or a person who swaps between dom and sub roles. What's that noun?" Many of you got the correct answer, "switch." One clever bastard decided the answer was "transformer." And since that is a much cooler name for people who are sexually flexible, I hereby move that it be adopted. Now let's talk future:1) We have a Disney themed quiz. It's going to be amazing. I want you ALL to be there. But it's not for another month-ish so you have time to study and plan your costume. It's optional but I challenge

Ted Cruz Was The Zodiac Killer
Cousin Chet

I still actively believe that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac. If you don’t know, the Zodiac Killer terrorized the San Francisco Bay Area in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Shot, stabbed and sent letters to the San Francisco Chronicle with weird cyphers in them to fuck with them. They made a movie about it with Robert Downey jr. It was pretty good. Now, after a few years, the killings and the letters stopped and no one was ever officially charged with the crimes. To this day it remains a mystery as to who he was. But as far as I’m concerned, he was Ted Cruz. And some people think that it’s not possible because he was either not born or an infant for most of the killings.

ORIGIN STORY TIME! ‘YeaAH!’ =-D Once I was an ordinary baby for like 30 seconds, then my momma was killed by ninjas! So I decided to join the Army and learn a “particular set of skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.” Then since I had to change jobs three times I decided to break out and go solo, but I couldn’t find myself a Wookiee. =-( I was a living legend at Coolidge College all 7 years I attended. In my time there I earned three degrees, none of which I use now in my current profession as a Jet fighter test pilot, or a CIA rookie guarding a safe house in Cape Town. I shouldn’t have said that….. I do enjoy my down time if ya know I mean ;-) I like to relax and listen to David Hasselhoff on my Sony walkman playing cassette tapes while I fall asleep watching Paul Nodel and Derek Tillman in the outer limits….

Was yesterday some kind of holiday? There was something about the... festive nature of a few teams that had me considering it. Maybe something to do with sink? Or mayonnaise? I admit, those would be weird holiday topics, but I can't think of anything else. Yes, Zachary Levi may have lost his small-screen Geeks Who Drink hosting job, but I assure you Bode will be back next week! The Zodiac Killer didn't get him, despite all his free time now. Which reminds me, I threw away the last of the GWD TV show postcards that were sitting out. It may have been cancelled months ago, but someone should tell their website.   Finding

We all had a blast last night! The outdoors have been lovely and many are out BBQ’ing but many are still very geeky and LOVE to drink!!! We had 7 teams and a few new face’s which is always a blast! Highlights of the evening included me being made fun of because I’m new to town and mispronouncing names of neighboring towns and events. Leave it to a NM to be made fun of in MN. The catering into the quiz tonight was delicious as well. Bonde Bistro was serving Corn beef cabbage sliders, yum yum!   Duran came in second place, a new kid on the block. Team Ramrod won this week and they have been a force to reckon with.

Pass the Phrase
Josh

Since Cybersecurity is right in my wheelhouse and since our quiz JUST happened to fall on World Password day,  I thought it’d best if I share with you some guidance on creating strong passphrases. The debate between passwords versus passphrase is currently the trending buzz online nowadays. Just after all the password hacking and identity theft incidents have caught media attention, a lot of online users have now become aware of the ominous danger that is lurking in the scam-infested world of the internet. Hence, the recommendation to use passphrases instead of passwords by IT experts just came at the right time to soothe everyone from the hangover of the password
