Two steps forward...
Admiral Cabbage

I cannot overstate how much I depend on my regular quizzers.  You guys are the meat to my carrots.  The milk to my generic Oat Circles With Honey cereal.  Without you I am...empty.  I am only half a man.  The upper half obviously because if I was just the lower half I would just be legs and balls.  Of course that begs the question, where is the horizontal bisection line of the average human anyway?  I mean I'm 5'10" so that means around three feet...If I had a tape measure handy, and I don't, then my guess is that would be just above my balls...but if I were to cut myself in half there then would the balls stay or just fall on to the floor right out

A Momentous Weekend
Paddycake

The third weekend in June is usually pretty crazy for me. My best friend's birthday is on June 26th, and he and I usually do something on that day, then that weekend is Pride weekend in Houston, during which we have a parade that I am usually a part of. This weekend was no exception, to that, but it was even crazier considering the events of Friday.   So let me share my weekend with you, because I don't really have much else to write about, and I want to share my joy with everyone.   So, I woke up Friday morning and started getting ready to head across town to my best friend's house. Normally we have a game night on Fridays anyway,
[ ...more... ]

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Harry Potter and the Cursed WHAT!?!
The Bearded One

It was our biggest night so far at the Bunkhouse with a whopping 16 teams, and with that many teams you're bound to get some weird answers. It's worth noting that Harry Potter does not (to my knowledge) have a cursed dildo, and also that Santana, while Latino, did not perform the song "Lowrider." There's also a limit on how many times you can make the quizmaster repeat "little stone vulvas" by shouting "Say it again!" at him, and that limit is 4.The competition was fierce all the way through. Almost half of our field tied for 1st after round 1, but My Beaver Brings All the Moose to the Yard separated themselves from the pack quickly by jokering and acing

Healing Power of Rock Lobster
MarcusFridley

Dang it's hot out. I drained like five glasses of water in the first hour. Those mint mojitos looked pretty good but I abstained. I did end up getting coconut ice cream at Mike's after the game though. But I'm getting ahead of myself, let's run through the game's events. Big game, certainly.  Rivalries still running strong... Round 1 was your topical news round. Can we do something about TPP? It's pretty awful. Also, will I care about the not-prequel Harry Potter? It's hard to say. Every book previously I've bought on release date and read through to completion. Meanwhile, real world stuff is whizzing by. Moving on. Round 2: songs that suggest getting places one

Like Tommy Wiseau...I am a Cult Following
MrKickass2002

When you live in the Northern part of the Front Range and host and sub quiz in the Northern part of the Front Range, you start to see the same faces. I was pleasantly surprised to see many regulars from other quizzes I have hosted and subbed for are also regulars at Liquid Mechanics! I truly felt at home. My first time in the place I was more than blown away. What a great setup, amazing beer (the IPA was out of this world and packs a punch), and awesome staff. Everyone had a blast, but mostly me.   Eight teams came out firing tonight and everyone was hot (boom shakalaka) from the get go. Round 1 was current events, where no team scored under a 7...impressive!

Eat More Ice Cream
Horatio Dell

That was Quiztastic. Was it easy? Nope. And that is what made it great. The Quiz started off with your quiz classic "Recently in Stuff" and these eight questions, which rewarded those in the know on current events, were just the bait needed to reel in tables who came just for the delicious pizza. Alas, the quiz would take a turn from rewarding those who were just aware of current events to finding the true worthy Quiz Champions of knowledge and nerd puns. After a music round which featured the rarest of unicorns, a perfect 16 point round where a team DID NOT joker (I can only hope they missed the rules and this was not a strategic blunder), the wheels came flying off and the difficulty would

Barnacles, Eh?
StephanieLange

After an entire round dedicated to crustaceans, I feel it's appropriate to continue my weird animal facts series with these most aquatic of arthropods. Specifically, barnacles. Barnacles, much like the last Rodney Dangerfield, just can't get no respect. Although they have free swimming, crustacean-style larva, the adults are sessile, attaching themselves permanently to a substrate and dispensing with a lot of their morphology. As they are stuck in one place, it makes for an interesting set of challenges when barnacle mating time comes around. Two adaptations to this arose in barnacles, one being a large number of species which are of the hermaphrodite gender persuasion. While helpful, most

She's Only 17
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

This may be something to be proud, maybe not.   For most of my life, I have looked older than I actually am. Starting in 8th grade and 5 years after that, I was asked if I was excited to be graduating high school. This made me a confused 14 year old sometimes. "I mean, I am ASSUMING that I will be excited, but I have another 5 years to go." So I figured by the time I was actually a senior in high school, people would get it right.   "What year are you? A senior? Aren't you glad you are done with college?" "Well, I would be if I had started it already."

Hey.   Remember that one time?   When you guys came to quiz?   And it was Wednesday?   And you braved the weather?   And it was July 1?   And Canada day?   And Dan Aykroyd's birthday (apparently)?   And you had a really good time?   And you played quiz?   And drank beer?   And had such a great time?   Remember?   I do.   It was awesome.   Can we do it again?   Sometime

Well hi there, thanks for stopping by.

You look lovely today.

My name's Stefanie, I'm from Dallas originally and have been hanging out in Houston for almost three years now and love this giant, beautiful city and all it has to offer. 

I went to Texas State University and hung out for a while in Austin, so I guess you could say I get around.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and lying about things I enjoy.

Feel free to bring me presents, buy me beers, and tell me I'm pretty.

Summer Teeth
Trent

Summer is clearly upon us. The solstice was about ten days ago, the big fireworks day is coming up this weekend, and, oh yeah, I'm about to start a five-week break from my other job. (Don't worry, I'll still be hosting quizzes.) But, before you get jealous of my summer break, just remember that the freshly-cut grass is always greener on the other side. While it's nice to have the free time, it also means that I am without a paycheck for a little over a month. So, if that lush, green lawn you've got over there on your side of the fence needs a trim, let me know. I could stand to pick up some odd jobs and make some quick cash. (I'm joking. Mostly.)   Quizmastering

Time is a Flat Circle
Seth

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: "This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same succession and sequence - even this spider and this moonlight between the trees, and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned upside down again and again, and you with it, speck of dust!"Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth
[ ...more... ]

Some people ask.  Who is Seth?  Well this is an excellent question.  I like to think of one of my favorite quotes:

"The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies. We're made of the interiors of High School Chemistry classes.  We are the equivolent of a modest lab fee."  -Seth Bannister 2013

Other than modifying Carl Sagan quotes, I have also been hosting Geeks Who Drink since October of 2012.  I've been a geek for most of my life and its finally paying off. These days being a geek is cool and hot chicks now buy Star Wars t-shirts and wear fake glasses.  I wear real glasses and have Star Wars tattoos.  Also Arrested Development rules.

LET'S GET POLITICAL, POLITICAL!
Chris

The title of the blog post is supposed to be read like it's an Olivia Newton-John song, FYI... I was wondering if Bernie Sanders' stop in Madison last night was gonna suck some teams off of the quiz, and I think I was right. It was still a happenin quiz with about as many teams as we usually have, but a couple of regulars were pointedly absent. Sanders scored a huge hit in Wisconsin last night drawing damn near 10,000 people to the Dane County Coliseum, coming within an inch of maxing out the capacity there, so it was bound to make at least a small dent in team numbers, but like I said, we kicked ass with a few newbie teams that all seemed to love pickin up the awesomeness we

Y'ALL. LAST NITES GAME WAS INTENSE. We had fifteen teams! And it was a pretty tough quiz! But everyone did amazingly well at it! And it was super competitive! AND IT WAS REALLY CLOSE!!!   Starting with the most obvious thing: the turnout! My God, y'all. I could scarcely believe my eyes. I'd truly love to see that many teams every week. And it seemed like everyone was really enjoying themselves, so maybe we really will continue to see that kind of turnout!   And the game. That was insanely competitive.

Tonight was all about celebrating! Independence! Ice Cream! Canada Day! Donald Trump being a gigantic tool!   Happy National Ice Month ladies and gents, we celebrated by drinking, because that’s how we celebrate everything. We further celebrated by naming 8 of the most popular and Ben and Jerry’s flavors of 2014. It was a tough one, never have we heard so many people upset by Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.   Trumps Tacos took an early lead after jokering the first audio round that was all about transit.

Lobster Scrambled Eggs
stotticus

How you like your eggs, fried or fertilized? Just so, Young Humma and Flynt Flossy of my favorite low-fi hip hop group Turquoise Jeep ask the wider internet. Apparently one of my teams adds lobster and brandy to their scrambled eggs in a dish that lends itself to the title of this blog post. How extravagant for breakfast! No wonder the average quizzer gets nothing done between 9 AM and 2 PM. I certainly wouldn’t after eating that in the morning. Last night had a great showing with eight teams competing fiercely for the top spot. High Dive featured an earthquake somewhere during rounds 7

The literary giant, F. Scott Titsgerald
QM Jarrad

Little did I know that I would be walking into a jam packed house at the Lamplighter. Teams from all corners of Ballard came in to claim 85th street supremacy. We had the veteran teams-Bloodthirsty Schoolgirls, Boogie Nights of the Round Table and the Pint Martens along with some newbies-Hey Nong Man, The Lost Romonovs and Trivia Hogs. Kudos to F. Scott Titsgerald for being my favorite team name of the night, for obvious reasons (I'm a child). In the end, it was incredibly tight at the top as the top 6 teams were separated by 5 points. But the Aluminum Falcons

Hey you, how are you? Thanks for clicking my name. Very thoughtful of you.

So, let's see, what do you want to know? Hmm. I took a four month trip around the world last year and saw really cool cities like Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Amman, Budapest, Sofia and Reykjavik. I like beer a lot. I've been drinking nothing but Founders All Day IPA lately since they released the 15 pack for $16!

I also recently discovered the Professor Blastoff podcast and have become obsessed with it. So at any given time, I'm either listening to it or thinking about something funny that happened in one of the episodes. And yes, I can rap just using my body.
