A Murder of Nuns
Master Moose

I often think about how the universe is filled with scales and how little space we, as humans, take up on those scales. For example, and as I've mentioned in past blogs, on the scale of electromagnetic energy, from .0001nm Gamma rays to 100m AM radio waves, our visible light spectrum is a tiny ~300nm range and more than half of the energy we don't see is deadly to us. On the physiological pH scale you're dead below 7.35 or above 7.45 and on the scale of temperatures in the universe, from the coldest thing we've ever encountered at ~minus273 degrees Celsius to the hottest thing at ~5.5Trillion degrees Celsius, us humans can naturally survive, on a long-term basis, in a miniscule ~20 degree

Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

Tonight…you…were privy to quite possibly the greatest evening of quizmastering (heh, I'm a knowledge Dom) that I've pulled off to date.  I'll actually get to that later on ze blog, so focus up, buckle yo' seatbelts and hop in for the ride. Apparently either my face, my voice, my personality, or possibly the whole business managed to drive out approximately 13 people at the start of quiz.  To be fair, 9 of them were one single, large team who knew ahead of time that quiz was happening, that it would be a little louder than usual

Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

I'm going to be the first to say it. Sesame Street will always be relevant and awesome. I watched it growing up and today when I happen to catch clips on YouTube when I see musicians write new songs for the show, or rework their own songs into kid friendly versions, it actually is pretty awesome. One of my favorites was Elvis Costello when he redid Angels want to wear my red shoes It didn't even feel like a kids song. Another one of my favorites is Dave Matthews and Grover singing a song about feelings. It's absolutely beautiful.

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday or a Tuesday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

Foot Binding Was Seriously Messed Up
Cap'n Brendan

I don’t know why, but in Junior High social studies I got really interested in foot binding when we studied China. Maybe it’s that I wear a size 14 shoe, and many brands stopped at 13. Or maybe it was just morbid curiosity. Either way, when it came up on a documentary I was fascinated. I started devouring as much information as I could find on the topic. And it truly is horrendous. You know, I think it was the fascination with an unattainable ideal of beauty that drew me in. What these women subjected themselves to, all in the name of trying to be something they thought men wanted… It’s gut wrenching. Excruciating pain, infections, lifelong disabilities. The

JT Keeps it Really Real
AdamFedyski

Every once in a while, a round of questions comes around that makes you wonder why it is not used on a weekly basis. This week, quizzers were treated to such a round that merely grazed the surface of Justin Timberlake’s vast library of awesomeness. Could JT serve as a round subject once a week? If so, how long could such a charade last? Worry not about these trivial questions- just appreciate it when we have an entire round devoted to a true voice of our generation. Tonight’s quiz helped us with an essential grammatical nugget: there are more words with double letters than you typically think about. Just look at that last sentence. We had fewer teams than the average week

Happy Birthday Liz!
Josh

Well ladies and gents it’s another one in the record books. We got started a little bit late due to some technical difficulties but all the teams that stuck with us had a great time. I know I did! Everybody was on the ball and making sure to get answers filled out quickly so we could move through and not keep people up too late for a Monday night. Overall it was a tight race for the finish line but It's Liz's Birthday and She'll Cry If She Wants To managed to make it into first place. Happy Birthday Liz! I hope you had a great time hanging out with us all tonight! Coming in second place was Puppy Bowl Champions 2016! I sadly didn’t get

If You Think Justin Timberlake Was In Reservoir Dogs, You've Definitely Never Seen Reservoir Dogs
JoeMills

24ish hours after the Denver Broncos clinched the Super Bowl title, those of us left standing after the great post-game riots managed to haul our asses down to Historians for our usual Monday Night GWD Pub Quiz.  I personally had the most amazing weekend of my life, as I turned 34 on Friday, hot tubbed at a fancy hotel with a bunch of teenagers, and watched the Broncos maul the Panthers for my first ever "hey my team actually won and I'm actually in the city when they won it" championship.    I assume many of our usual quizzers were yet to be bailed out of county lockup for tonight's quiz.  Nine teams competed tonight, in a quiet, but hotly contested quiz.

New Year New You Round Two
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good Evening Geeks of Wyman's!  How nice it is is to see you all again. One of these weeks I am going to come play when Ellen hosts so I can see how the other half lives. This bar is sweet and perfect for quizzing in. I love your dedication to the game and that is it easy to hear audio rounds. Also, that pizza looks amazing.  Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year! May you have good fortune and a second shot at your OG resolution. Or just make new ones. I am opting for choice B. Way back in the month of January, I committed to getting my shit together. Along the way I realized shit is fine and I should focus instead on just living life. So there you go, second shot.

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

Chicken Soup for the Muslim Soul

What every good quiz needs, a healthy dose of insensitivity, racism, and a dash of soup.  This was my favorite answer of the evening, so mad-props to my fourth place team, Quiz or Quiz Out You, thank you for making me laugh. Thanks to my first and third place teams for bringing me edible goodies.  You’re my favorites, don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise*. I’m so glad you all came out to quiz tonight.  I knew I was running the risk of competing against the soft opening of Alamo Drafthouse’s new location, so the turnout was infinitely greater than I expected.  Thanks for exceeding my expectations.  I love

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!

Sunny Days
The Duke of Allston

Can somebody explain to me the point of putting Sesame Street on HBO?  I thought that was an Onion article when I read the news about that.  You're a non-profit organization, so why take the new episodes off of free television?  Better yet, why is the show only half an hour now?  I have an adult Facebook friend who loves Sesame Street, and he was catatonic that they cut the show to 30 minutes.  He thrives on his routines, so I feel for the guy.  Also, Oscar should have been orange the whole time.  Why did they make him green?   I don't have answers for those questions, but you folks had plenty of correct answers for tonight's music

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

I'm Lindsleazy and last weekend I spent $60 on payperview hotel movies. And they weren't even pornographic! Monday was much better because I got to host at Slake Week #2! And together we filled Matthew Perry's Hole and sang the All That theme song and dreamt about the Lance Bass theatre career that coulda been.  What we learned on Monday Night: -Sesame Street is a lot different than I remember it being. But I'm definitely gonna go watch that James Blunt video ASAP. -Aaron Eckhart has been in more than one movie apparently! Everyone had a really hard time recognizing

Sesame Street Did What?
EricBurch

It was a brawl to get through the (admittedly lacking) snowstorm, and only a few choice teams were willing to risk their lives to make it to Fado Irish Pub. Not that that meant the people that made it were, how do I put it...smart. Our winning team thought that Sesame Street covered the Bloodhound Gang. A large number of people can't spell Tennessee. One team even thought that Michael Dukakis ran for president in 2008. Unfortunately for us, someone had to actually take home prizes this week. Two Mannings One Cup jumped onto the podium for the first time, taking home the second place prize. But it was Council Of Trent making it two in a row with another victory!

What are the freaking odds, man?! I'm in the middle of round 3 where we are determining if the quote is from an episode of Lost or a Lincoln commercial with Matthew McConnaughey and lo and behold, but in the middle of a question on comes a fucking Lincoln commercial with Matthew fucking McConnaughey and the fucking subtitles are on!!! I couldn't believe it! Of course, one of my quizzers noticed and pointed it out and I was baffled by the uncanny fucking odds of having that happen. Mind=blown!!! Pow pow pow! Just a bunch of weird stuff going on honestly. A Macklemore song is on Round 2 and I had a Macklemore song in my playlist and then my friend Travis that I ran into right after determining
