I've Got a Fever and Not Even More Cowbell can Cure it
PFS

Somehow, someway, the world continues to turn, and the apocalypse has yet to begin...all this despite the fact that Douchebag Trump has "formally" accepted the Republican nomination for President. Just give that a second to sink in. Donald Trump, professional dickhead and "reality TV personality" is a major party candidate for the President of the United States. Holy fuck. Should I be looking up how to expatriate to Canada yet, or is it too soon to think that the fate of our great nation is doomed? It's hard to say at this point. Let's not forget that there are other candidates to choose from. Hillary is a joke, but a joke who could do things, in much the same way that Bush was a joke, she

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Half Wolf, Half Human... All Geek!
Evan

I kinda want to see a version of Predator in which Van Damme, all fishnet-clad and huge-helmeted, uses badass martial arts against Arnold. I mean, that version would probably have been pretty shitty, but while Predator is iconic, it isn't terribly brilliant in the first place. So in my opinion, it wouldn't have been too much of a loss.   Also, I kinda wanna hear Seagal's "Talk to my Ass," but I kinda don't want that knowledge bouncing around in my head. My brain doesn't need to be so specifically aware of another atrocity in this world. A man can only take so much.

Munich and the 2nd Most Difficult Auto Fix
Nick

Tonight's quiz had Munich as an answer twice. Once in the round about Germany and another in round 8. I tend to only remember the triumphs of the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany; mainly Mark Spitz's then gold medal record performance. The other side of the round 8 question mentioned the killing of 9 Israeli athletes and I was like, "oh yeah. I had forgotten about that." So here's some history, complete with wiki links: The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich,

Road Trip!
Caribbean Joe

I had the fortune of sharing a long weekend with my love on a trip to Los Angeles. I wish I could say it was to do some work on a film or something, but alas it was but for fun. Now I am of the school of road trips.  I love going on them.  A lot of people cannot handle being in a vehicle that long, so they don’t like road trips, or they just can’t be in an enclosed space with people for that long. I kind of like it. Road trips let you talk and really get to know people. Not only do you talk, but at some point the real you pops out. Maybe some people are scared of that happening and that’s why they don’t like road trips. So we had a great time on the road.

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

Of Horses and Pokemon
Scott

The new season of BoJack Horseman is incredible. Who would have thought a dumb cartoon about a famous horse would tackle real-life issues like depression and emptiness in such a meaningful way? There’s a mostly dialogue free episode spent underwater that is a take-off of movies such as Lost in Translation and Fantasia, and it’s as good as anything I’ve watched on a screen this year. I spent a considerable chunk of my weekend binge watching the third season on Netflix since it was mostly way too hot to accomplish anything outdoors. It’s highly recommended to anybody looking for something new to watch. Is there a lot of good TV out there? Yes. Are you obligated to watch

Rochester Has The CUTEST Birds.
QM Colleen

I went to the butterfly exhibit at the Strong Museum with my nephew and sister who were in town and it's the first time I've ever been. There are more than just butterflies in there and it's super awesome. There are toucans. There are turtles. But most importantly there are these tiny puffball birds with no tails. They are a quail of some kind - button quails maybe? I don't think I can explain how cute these little balls of feathers were. They did a little head bob thing like pigeons. Their wings blended into their round bodies so they looked like feathery pears with legs. They look like real life Pokémon. THESE BALLS OF CUTE ARE IN OUR CITY EVERY DAY AND I SUGGEST YOU

Your Mother's Worst Enema

Greetings from another quiz at O’Possum’s! This week we talked about pantheons, word problems and why Civilization V is the best game. Here are some things that we have learned: Sometimes it pays to listen to the full question before answering. Y.M.C.A. is a song about indiscriminately hooking up with dudes in the ‘70s. Steven Seagal is the most unintentionally hilarious cop. Watch his show. It’s fantastic. Your mother has herpes. Probably. “Shitty Rocky Horror Picture Show” is not the correct answer, but it’s really

It Might As Well Have Been Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney

That’s how I felt about the Van Damme/Seagal round.  But you guys must really like that stuff because it didn’t faze you at all.  It was your third best round overall (after Round 1 on Deutschland and Round 4 on whatever the hell that was with the three-letter words in common).  What else did we learn tonight?  Quizzers hear “plantation owner” and go straight to Django, even when that had nothing to do with what the question was asking and Django himself wasn’t the plantation owner.  Did you guys even see that movie?  Also, “president older than Nixon” is apparently Lincoln.  There were 21 in between them,

For any other languages: https://translate.google.com I could not have asked for a better crowd on that hot Sunday night. I will ask, because that’s just how I am, but that’s beside the point. We packed the house for our debut of Geeks Who Drink at Macleod Ale and it couldn’t have gone any better. You guys (and ladies) came out ready to play, and play you did.

Did you try all the new Beer? Did you? If you did not, and you are reading this in today, 7/25/16, and you live in/near KC, then you should drive down to the brewery and try the Anniversary beers. They are good. So a business gets and Anniversary, and not a Birthday? Huh. Who knew? Pop-pop in The Attic returned this week to mop the floor with everyone and come in first place 10 points ahead. I am glad to see them back, but when they were gone it was like watching random animals fight each other. Anyone could win. I don’t know if a Wolverine can beat a Kangaroo! I don’t know!

Our evening at Kilkenny’s Irish Pub began by welcoming our substitute teacher with open arms and congratulating SuperDave on his new job as Melania Trump’s speechwriter.   Once we got down to business, it quickly became apparent that newcomers Lisa NikkiSAW (who showed up at the bar five minutes before the quiz and had NEVER played before) were going to be a force to be reckoned with.   After three rounds, Lisa NikkiSAW drew gasps from the crowd as they pulled ahead of stalwart teams like 3 Stooges and Team Ozzie.

"This is the real thing. This is what you’ve been trained for."
Jess of Cats

I’m sure there are some quizmasters who spend their entire careers in sleepy little venues with only a few teams every week. I thought that might be my fate as a quizmaster. I was officially hired by Geeks Who Drink a few months ago, but I had to wait for a new venue to come on board before I could commence my regular weekly quizmastering duties. I went through all of the required training, of course, and even substituted for another quizmaster in the meantime. The venues I trained and subbed in were all successful, but didn’t have a huge number of teams—maybe 10 at most (which is actually a respectable turnout for a regular quiz, in my opinion). I thought my tenure

Jean Claude Van Damme look at those buns.
Taylor's Witty Nickname

Jean Claude Van Damme was hired to be the Predator from Predator. Most people know this. Have you really stopped to think what that movie would have been like? The Predator we have now is a stealth machine. Cloaking itself until it has the advantage then rips you apart in various ways, but what if instead of stealth it fought you head on using martial arts. No spear, no space lazer, just jump kicks, roundhouses and the occasional splits. I’m not saying this would’ve made the movies better (that's near impossible) but it would have been a pretty great movie like that. Instead of the whole crew shooting and yelling at nothing in the jungle, JCVD would

I really liked the rounds today. I was surprised to learn how much I know about Germany. One question was about how Germany is called Germany by us, but Germans call it Deutschland, and France and Spain call it Alemagne and Alemania respectively. Why is that? How does that happen? Why not just Duestchland for everyone? I get that the people were Germanic so we called it Germany, I can only assume tat something similar happened in France, but why don't we change it? I don't mind switching from Germany to Deutschland. I get when languages use different alphabets but if its the same it just seems silly. Anyway, did you know Steven Seagal has
