The time my dog ate my computer power cord
Dusty

My dog, Miley Cyrus, is a monster.  I woke up today to find my backpack had been rummaged through.  I know I didn't do anything but open it, so I had a couple suspects.  I coulnd't figure it out until I went to write my blog and found my cord chewed in half. I'm lucky my partner is so flipping handy, because otherwise I'd be out 65.00 for a new cord.Tonight, there was an awesome smutty fan fiction round.  I used my best books on tape voice. I hope y'all noticed. The Spiders from Mars had first place right up until Bitches on a Budget swung in on the last round and took it from them.  The "Bitches" part

I Wanna Be At The Quiz Where It Happens
Rev. Lindsay

Show of hands: who thought round four was the best thing that ever happened?Yeah, us too.  Lindsay2 doesn’t often ask to read a round but we HAD to switch hit that.  And hit that we did.  Hopefully no one got pregnant last night, unless they wanted to.  And you’re welcome.  I practiced that sultry voice allllll day. I also totally loved the round three business and the gimmes with all the Paula Deen recipes missing butter. Did you know that during quiz, there was a manhunt happening on the other side of 35?  The smokers can attest to this tweet being true.  We

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person. 

Buy her a shot of fireball to avert the pain of this bio writing.

Go play her quiz at Silo on 7th on Tuesdays at 8PM and at Nomad Bar on Thursdays at 8PM.

I'll Show You Where To Put Your Thumbs!
Weazel

Seriously, though, thumbs up is the worst hand signal one can give when someone is trying to figure out if the sound is loud enough.  You are literally saying AT THE SAME TIME both "sounds great" and "turn it up".  It's the WORST! ALSO!  I forgot to announce that quiz tonight was our anniversary!  I'm a horrible spouse/quizmaster, I know.  But, yes, it is our one year anniversary of quiz awesomeness here at CosmoNoms.  HUZZAH! Tonight quiz was absolutely hilarious thanks to BUTTER and a whole lot of juicy smut.  We always keep things classy here at GWD. ;) It was a super close night, but round eight broke things apart and

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhha!, ahhhhhhhhhhhha!,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

It’s so refreshing to have questions about the Axis of Evil that don’t involve Iran (especially in a quiz that had three questions involving Iran).
shadude (the long winded Persian)

SPOILER ALERT: I’m Iranian. Now I’m used to be the butt of many jokes during quiz (well, more precisely, my home country). There is still my fave question about how the Farsi word for “snow” is “barf” (even though it’s not pronounced the same as the word for “vomit”). But it is nice when the questions involving Iran are making fun of someone else. Imagine my surprise when I saw the premiere of “The People vs OJ Simpson” only to see former-Friend, David Schwimmer, play Iranian icon and OJ BFF, Robert Kardashian. (Yeah, that’s right people, Kim Kardashian is Iranian. And you thought out nuclear program

I Need A Shower Now
Hunter

Fan fiction, slash fiction, shipping... whatever you want to call it, it's awkward to read it aloud on a mic. I almost felt like I was back at a job I had *years* ago: audio book editor. Yeah, for a short time, I was an editor at a voice-over studio in Hollywood. I was hoping at one point to get on the other side of the mic and do voice-overs for a living. Hell, I still think that would be fun to do. But sometimes that text you'd have to read is just... painfully awkward.That's how we all felt about Round 4 tonight. For me, the question about Saved By The Bell was *very* awkward. Why? I was a closed-captions editor after I was an audio book editor. Our offices at that

shadude (the long winded Persian)

This was one of those quizzes that makes Geeks Who Drink like no other trivia company in America, if not the world. Everyone else just asks a bunch of questions with barely any rhyme or reason…..they put very little thought into writing their questions, let alone an entire quiz. Crafting a quiz is something we at Geeks Who Drink take very seriously. That’s why we have a staff of about 50 writers and graphic artists and audio/video editors….all led by a six-time “Jeopardy!” super-champ, Christopher Short. Besides having a keen and sharp mind, Christopher is quite cultured and clever as well. Christopher is always trying to challenge the writers

Hot Buttered Racism
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

Thanks for letting me fill in for Dave, who was off making art and rehearsing a play he's directing.  What a talented bastard. We started round one testing your ability to remember the last 7 days.  Round 2, we heard a whole fuck town of Uncle Kracker.  Too much of it.  Also, Dobie Gillis is different than Dobie Grey.  WAY different.  Word to the wise, when there is a question about Paula Deen, the answer is always either butter or racism.  Or both.   Round 4.  God damn, I don't know how fun it was for you as a quizzer, but it was the most fun for me as your host.  Gross, but fun.  Also, I think I had that

Killing Machine
AaronMorse

Welcome back to our third quiz at the amazing Virtual Sports in Tukwila.  For the first time regular team member and loyal quizzer Marisa made it out to this new quiz.  The manager was super cool and gave her a quick tour and showed her the awesome all metal CO2 powered laser tag guns, the armory and the prep room.  She was skeptical at first, but as soon as she saw how awesome and  huge this place is she was sold.  It was a little disturbing when they handed her a machine gun (she clearly knows her way around a gun) and she got this weird murderous look in her eye.  I absolutely want her to be on my team when we play next week.  Here's

Man! It is cold as a nipple that isn't being massaged into rosy tumescence out there! I'm so glad I'm going to Los Angeles tomorrow... through Monday! 77 degrees tomorrow! I'm packing shorts, y'all. But before that, we must recap this week's pub quiz at Fado Irish Pub! What did we learn?   - Zika has reached the U.S., and the WHO is in a tizzy... not The Who. Yaaaaaaaaaooooooooooow!   - Smashing Pumpkins are going on the road with Liz Phair this summer! Save your money. I saw the Smashing Pumpkins live 10 years ago, and even that was 10 years too late.   - "Drift Away"

Hey, everybody!

I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, I've been to 45 states, and I saw Letterman's "Late Show" live 20 times before it ended.

I'm on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm, and Fado Irish Bar Thursdays at 8pm!

I've been having a real bang up week - had an extra day off work, got college drunk at a toga party for the first time in ages, got a pedi - what could go wrong?! Oh yeah, my roommate could go wrong. Sitting on my duff Monday night watching American Ninja Warrior and I just hear WHACKWHACKWHACK from the living room.

Iowa's Small White Caucus
Jim

So, the Iowa Caucuses were this week. I don't know why they don't just cast ballots like normal fucking people. Get your shit together Iowa. I'm just kidding. You do you, Iowa. Also, those six coin flips weren't a big deal so everybody can stop losing their shit. Congrats to Victor-peas-us Broncos and Please Clap for Jeb on their respective first and second place victories last night. Although Please Clap for Jeb was a good name, my favorite from last night is still Sock Puppet Blowjob.   Here's what we learned. -Hilldawg supporters

Wherein Team AJ chats about Meow meow meows
Team AJ

Angela: Reba is so spoiled. And kinda pushy. It's like she's psychic and knows exactly when I'm pouring a glass of milk. She wakes up out of a dead sleep and immediately tries to stick her face in my glass to drink it. Of course I let her. She doesn't drink much of it, at least. Jeremy: She's going to keep doing it because you keep letting her :) I don't blame you, she's cute. She was really insistent this morning that if she didn't get cuddled, carried, and played with, the world was going to end. Angela: lol...yeah, she's quite the princess needing ALL the attention. Jeremy: Speak of the devil, I hear a meow, meow, meowing under my chair. No food from me, bwahahaha Angela:

What a Night? What a Country!
Nicknames are Hard

In 1600, Johannes Kepler arrived in Prague to collaborate with Tycho Brahe. (Kepler had left Graz the previous month, on 1 Jan 1600.) Kepler provided mathematical calculation skills to make sense of the wealth of data that Brahe had accumulated as an enthusiastic and accomplished astronomical observer. Longomontanus had already arrived at Benárky Castle. Brahe gave Kepler the task of determining a way to reliably compute the orbit of Mars. Longomontanus was assigned to revise lunar theory until he departed on 4 Aug 1600. Meanwhile, what Kepler initially thought would take eight weeks, actually extended to eight years’ work. Brahe died 24 Oct 1601, having bequeathed his data, records

Though the eve was chilly in Richland as we made our way into the Emerald, the carnal heat and fiery exploits certainly raised our temperatures. Boom, that was sex in a sentence.

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. 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!

It's Past Someone's Bedtime....
Mandrew

The subject of politics, when taken seriously, almost never has an amicable outcome when mixed with alcohol and crowds.  Despite amazingly terrible team names and sardonic banter, The Home Plate kept the actual onslaught of a full-fledged political fight at bay.  It may very well have been the crazily offensive team names, but possibly the general awesomeness of our regular teams keeping the atmosphere elevated and jovial. Along with finding the ONE other Dream Theater fan in Fort Worth, TX, The Home Plate saw another great night of awful cover songs and incredibly addictive Pub Quiz.  All the teams kept each other on their toes throughout the game and completely ignored
