Oh My God! Movable Printed Type!
EricBurch

It's starting to get a little crazy at Fado Irish Pub each week here at Easton. Three straight weeks in the 13-16 range for teams and it's starting to get really competitive. But you wouldn't know it by our answers! Two of my favorite questions and therefore two of my favorite sets of answers tonight. Firstly, you see what happens when people are stupid, as three people simultaneously suggest that hippos kill the most humans per year, so virtually every team follows along. Nope! You're all wrong! Don't shout out answers, and more importantly don't listen to shouted answers. And then! And then! How many teams thought that there was at least one version of Breaking

chiropractic snake oil or something
Jules

I went to a chiropractor today. It was…weird. So, do chiropractors like....pop things…and then they get better? I’m confused how this works. It seems like some sort of scheme to me…since he wanted me to come back 3 times a week (45x3=too much money?). And now my neck is really sore. Not sure if I’m interested in pursuing something wherein someone hurts me and I pay them to. Oh wait…that sounds like another line of work too. Hm….. We were missing a few of our old favorites at Front Range this evening. Maybe the end of summer is coming and everyone is trying to get in a last minute vacation? However, we had plenty of other teams to

Jack White + Mozart + Insane Clown Posse
Ravioli

To be perfectly honest, I was hoping for a slower night. Nursing a legendary hangover and with ears ringing from a 4 hour motorcycle ride back from Portland, I wanted nothing more than to deal with 3-4 teams and get some rest before my Real People Job. But I'll be damned if Fire + Brimstone wasn't popping on Sunday night, and quiz had a decent turnout. These are the things I suffer through for you, dear reader. Oh fuck it, who am I kidding. I get paid to do this, and once my karaoke hosting career takes off, all of my early-20s social-event-hosting dreams will have come true. What did we learn? Let's recap: - Janet Reno and

Hey everyone.   Thanks for coming out to The Harp.   It was good to see everyone.   And I'm really excited about our new regular crowd.   I love lording over you guys.   It's fun to show off one's prowess.   But if you have a gift, you should give it to the world.   It was be self centered to think otherwise.   Why deprive you of my considerable charm and charisma.   Trust me.   I wont.   Because we all deserve to listen to me at the end of every week.   You

Walking On The Moon Down In The Basement
SuperDave

Sunday Funday at Kilkenny’s Irish Public House always calls for quenching one’s thirst with $2 Irish Car Bombs and $2 Leinster Irish Lagers (though my preference is for either a Marble City Red on nitro or a Diabolical IPA, but hey, there’s different strokes for different folks, AMIRIGHT?).  But of course, the masses converge on Kilkenny’s for another key reason on Sunday nights – the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz!   We took the starch out of everyone in Round 1 talking about words including “corn” somewhere within.  The first audio round of the night dealt with songs that spent at least 9 months on the Billboard

I'm just your friendly neighborhood SuperDave, that's all. When I'm not enjoying a good pint of craft beer and memorizing seemingly useless nuggets of wisdom for trivia purposes, I can be found behind the mic at a Traverse City Roller Derby bout or a Traverse City Hounds Jr. A hockey game, cycling and camping through Northern Michigan, enjoying a Netfliz or Hulu binge (Adventure Time! C'mon, tell your friends!), or catching up on listening to a litany of podcast gold (Nerdist, Doug Loves Movies, Marek vs. Wyshynski, Short's Cast, Sound Opinions, et al). And I love tacos (almost as much as MY WIFE!)

Christmas In July Means PRIZES AND DEALS GALORE!
Bobaloo

As the end of July draws to close, the competition keeps getting hotter throughout the summer months at Bar One! Twelve teams roared into Sunday night’s Geeks Who Drink arena, and much like Thunderdome, 12 teams in, one team leaves….the winner!   Got off to a hot start as Round 1’s corny answers and Round 2’s overplayed and overheard music selections got most of our teams perfect rounds for 1 and even into round 2. After that, the cookies started to crumble. Rounds 3, 6 and 8 were huge equalizer rounds for teams that came out swinging hard early on, and we ended things off with a huge pile up of teams at the end

So you guys dont know much about famous composers.
TaylorCrane

A round in which there are only 3 answers should be pretty easy. Plus its a round of pretty famous composers. A cake walk right? Nope. Most teams really struggled with that round. Its ok. I mean no ones perfect. Except that one team who scored a perfect on that round. They were pretty perfect.  I do have a pro-tip for any quizzers that read this blog. If you score 11 or more points on the music round your best bet is to joker it. Round 8's tend to be pretty hard. Thats the point. No theme, just completely random. There are so many wasted points sometimes. There isn't a worse feeling than scoring a 10 on round 2 and not jokering and then jokering round 8 and scoring

The Cancer of Capricorn
Doctor Nick: Thymelord

I always tell you, when in doubt, make it funny. I’m not sure if answering “The Cancer of Capricorn” was meant to be a hilarious answer, but it certainly is both hilarious and unfortunate. On the top layer, we looked at it and thought, “Ha! That’s funny that they put both names of the major tropic latitude lines together. But then… Alas, poor Capricorn. You have cancer. Way to bring things down in round one, you guys! As expected, round two was big for most teams. And then round eight destroyed most team’s hopes and dreams. It’s probably because round eight was upset about the news of Capricorn. But, Ned

Nick is one of the rare people who was born in Las Vegas long before it became Disneyland for degenerates. His growing discomfort for heat, and ongoing feud with some Canadian boy named Celine Dion led him to the land of Zion. Upon discovering this wasn't the same land of Zion mentioned in The Matrix, he decided to make the best of the situation and began hosting pub quizzes. 

His hobbies include drinking, eating, teaching children to swear, cooking, and being one of the last people on earth who thinks CDs are the only way to buy music. His turnoffs are walks on the beach, because that combines sun, sand, and countless bacterias growing in the moist heat. 

By day he looks at an endless supply of MBA student assignments and weeps for the future. His most recent inappropriate comment to a student was, "I could take your business proposal to run an armoury for Live-Action-Role-Players seriously if it wasn't for the 793 grammatical errors which impeded my giggling."

He's not a licensed therapist, but he's happy to take a look inside your head and solve your problems. Better yet, come out to a quiz and drink your troubles away.

Silence Your Cellphone, Drinks on the Left
QM Colleen

True to my word - my blog is about cupholder anxiety. Thanks for the inspiration, Tony. Certain public institutions rely on the courtesy of others and their willingness to follow directions/social norms in order to function. One such institution is the placement of drink holders on movie theater seats. This simple construct has actually been a source of anxiety for me for years. Movie theaters buy seats that have shared cupholders. Often one of the end seats in a row has an armrest that excludes a cupholder. This means that there are exactly enough cupholders for everyone in the row. Even if they do have the extra cupholder on the end, there is only one extra cupholder. If

Truce.
IanChadwick

Sure I seemed super frustrated when we first started, and that's because I definitely, without a doubt, 100% was ripping my hair out of my scalp trying to get a audio system to work. I understand AV configurations for the most part, but when I don't know what is plugged in where, I start to get a wee bit cranky. I am very aware that I showed that frustration quite vividly. I want to throw out an apology for that right away, but also want to note that we did in fact make it work somehow. Sure, some teams were a bit hard of hearing, or so their names claimed but their scores said differently! How can I trust you if you actually win, but claim you can't hear! I DON'T KNOW WHO TO TRUST ANYMORE!

HUR HUR.....MATH SUCKS!
Quizmaster Mike

Math was never easy. Well, for some of us, it was. But, you know, that’s the trope. Math sucks! But we here at Geeks Who Drink know that you hate math. It’s pretty much a given for any large group of people. We’re good at formulating rounds. Not just good, but the best. So when I say “Hey, we’ve got a round on math!” and everyone groans, then I get to say “But with no math!.” And man does that feel good. First we put you down, then we pick you up. That’s how it’s done. Speaking of math, I once went to the Four Corners. It was the first question of the quiz. I was

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

Hey Quizzers, thanks for coming out for week 4 of the Lucky Dog! The following teams came out to see us: Bachelorette Disaster, This Team is Lazy, Dr. Chim Richalds, M.D., Beerdo (who joined us all the way from Buffalo, NY!), Sweater Puppies ,Slick Titties, This Popcorn is Making Me Thirsty, My Girlfriend Can't Wrestle but You Should See Her Box, 3 Crazy Biaches,  Overdue, and Baby. "Overdue" was named because of being overdue with a baby, and "Baby" was named for a team with a 4-month-old (who happens to be mine. My husband actually frequently plays and brings our 4 month old). It looks like Geeks will take over the next generation!

Sunday quiz at Big Dog's Draft House on the porch had me thinking about many things of the past. Like how much I disliked Bob Newhart. In the mid-80’s I recall Newhart meant that my favorite shows were done. Although I looked up the network TV schedule through the run of the show and from what I can tell my memory is totally fucked. Designing Women, Kate and Allie, My Sister Sam. I was definitely not in those demographics. I recall watching Airwolf and Knight Rider. Nighthawk with the dude in all black on the motor cycle. A-team must have been in there too. Airwolf, what a concept. Shit is going down, send a black Helicopter to save the day. Recycle some fancy footage, wrap it up!   We
