Is John Nash really dead or is this another mission?
Killer B

It's always the quiet ones. The two person team of Pootang State sat quietly at their booth and kicked everyone's ass. Just dominated. In what proved to be a tougher round two for some teams, they scored 13 and stayed strong in every round after.    Their

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.

Wherein Team AJ chats about Remakes
Team AJ

Jeremy: Okay yeah the new Point Break is going to be bad, isn't it. The actors seem like models... who can't act...   Angela: I'm a Point Break purist, so I'm probably not the best person to ask. I don't like the new trailer at all.   Jeremy: Well the original is one of those movies that should have been terrible, but was good.   Angela: But I do like that an original cast member from Point Break is in the movie.   Jeremy: The intensity Swayze brought to the movie is kind of hard to match.   Angela: Ha...you give them too much credit. They don't even seem like models to me.   Jeremy:

Thrust, the Sexiest of All Forces
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Howdy, Fado-nuts!   We’re fresh off another classic nail-biter of a quiz, and I’m here to provide your handy, dandy recap, in the event that you’re too drunk/tired/69’ing high on hashish to remember tonight’s proceedings. Before the quiz even got rolling, Manager Ian took it upon himself to drench my seat and general quiz area with water. It was for a good cause, as he was trying to set up the game board for the jackpot contest, but still! The last thing The Freshmaker needs is a wet ass. My ass has enough going on without added moisture! In fact,

By day I work on getting carpal tunnel, by night I dance for your amuesment.

All I ask is that you draw me like one of your French girls. 

I love Rick & Morty and venues that serve mozzarella sticks.

I've been QM'ing since October 2010 and have loved every minute of it.  I'm actually sitting here counting the minutes until I can work on next week's quiz.  One... two... three... fourteen... seventy... eleven hundred... one jillion...

... I'm also crap at math.

Why I Won't S Your D
Quizmaster Soss

Who doesn't love a giant boardgame with Margaret Thatcher giving you sexy eyes? Tonight's Visual Round was all that and more and you guys pretty much rocked it. Remind me to never come over to your house and play Chutes & Ladders. But if you see me creeping around and peeking in your windows, feel free to invite me in.   We had a quaint lil' quiz tonight and it felt just like when mom would invite her friends over and play cards and they'd all tell me how great I was and what a good boy I was and inevitably a few of them would start crying because what of what a bag of crap their life had become. It was exactly like that and I am still a good boy. The one difference

 In 1874, Thomas A. Edison was issued a patent for a device concerning "Automatic Telegraphy and in Perforators Therefor" (U.S. No. 151,209). This was just one of many patents on telegraphy he obtained early in his inventing career. He had applied for his first patent on 28 Nov 1868 for an "Electrographic Vote-Recorder." A couple of months later, his second patent application, on 25 Jan 1869, began a period of nine years of patenting inventions primarily related to printing telegraphs, electromagnetics, switches and circuit for telegraphy. This invention produced a message directly onto a strip of paper such that it was ready to be folded and sent to its destination immediately. Letters

The Swan Song
Amanda "I'm Dutch and don't care"

Well we have arrived: the end of the line, the fork in the road, the heel of the bread. Our final night together in this joyous place. We have shared many memories, many jokes and many more drinks. The thing about finales is they are usually one of two things, amazing or horrible. I would call this one pretty amazing.   I have so enjoyed our time here together and we could say this isn’t the end, it is just goodbye for now. We’ll see each other again, I know this for sure, mostly because you weirdo’s can’t stay away from me.   So for now, we say farewell

Oh hey there weary traveler...you're weary from traveling to this blog...or something...lets start over!

Bonjour!

Amanda at your service. By day I manage projects. I will manage your projects SO HARD! By night I do a whole lot of the same things, except on Tuesday I host a quiz!

In general I like dogs, sweet tea and the beach. You hit me with one of those things and we just became best friends!

Quizzin' in the Rain
Mr. Fahrenheit

Tonight we were going to have ourselves a real good time, we felt alive.  So we went ahead and did.  MacAttack!! joined us for the first time ever and I really appreciated their comments and as with any new team; welcome to the world of quiz.  Tough night for quiz let alone anyone's first time.  Rounds two and five found their difficulties and round seven was one of the tougher I've recently seen. When a score of 63 is the winner on the evening, you know it couldn't have been similar to a cake walk.  #SexPrism found their nemesis in Sex3 (cubed) but overcame all the hurdles and difficulties to yet, once
