Toms: Donating Jackboots to Fascists in Need
QuizGentleman Bryton

Well now Lumpy's, nice place you got there!  QuizGentleman Bryton here filling in for Sarah this week. I nice competitive quiz that didn't see a perfect score until The Guesstapo pulled out eight points on Round 4, a round on boots and walking. Round 4 also saw my favorite answer of the night. "What footwear is now synonymous with fascism?" No, the answer is not Tom's. I kind of wanted to give double-points to that, but alas the correct answer is jackboots. As in jackbooted thugs.    Speaking of thugs, good job on the visual round everybody. Y'all really know your sneak-thieves. The first sheet I scored, one of you just wrote

The Slow, Sad Death of The Simpsons
R-Kenny

I have no idea why I'm so committed to writing about tonight's blog topic, but I am. Maybe it's the fact that I usually watch a handful of episodes after quiz. I'm sure it being an answer during R7 also got me thinking about how much I love this show. A lot of good shows have come and gone, but this is probably my favorite of all time. I grew up watching it. One of the advantages of having young parents is that I got to watch all sorts of stuff I shouldn't have. The second movie I ever saw was Platoon. Yeah, if you want to prevent your children from becoming a Quiz Master, maybe you should make sure they don't watch Vietnam war movies as babies. It wounds them. That said, the show has gotten

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".

Howdy, friends! Thank you for another lovely evening at Old Chicago in Longmont. And for once, it did not rain while we were playing quiz tonight. It thunderstormed on me a few hours before while I was walking home, but fuck it, I’m calling this a win! Because if you’ve been paying any attention to this blog, it pretty much rains every goddamn time we’re quizzing.   And what a quiz it was tonight! We hit a record of twelve active teams and they all kicked some serious ass tonight. Go all y’all! We ended up with a three way (heh) tie tonight for first place - Chalupa Batman, Anomalous Materials (formerly

Hello again! It felt good to be back at the New Heights Grill for our weekly ritual. I enjoyed my time in Portland (Oregon… not Maine) but I missed you guys… I know I know… You missed me too. It’s mutual. But I digress…   The usual heavyweights were in the building, and the fight went the distance.   Rounds 1-3 of tonight’s quiz focused on the Scripps Spelling Bee, the most powerful currency in the world (or at least in the top 10… I think… don’t quote me on that): the American dollar, and strangely specific summer camps. Two teams posted perfect scores in Round 1: More Like Boriphyll

My Heart Will Go On... O'er the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!
Gerry-oke

Ahem, ahem... mi-mi-mi-mi... Quite an interesting night of quiz at Durty Nelly’s this week!  Besides the usual quiz-tastic goodness, we had an a cappella sing-off over the second-to-last place prize.  “Yeesh.  How’d that go?” you may ask.  Actually, quite well!  My man Jacob from Team Redundancy Team had the audience (specifically Team Slam Sandwich) pick his song for him; they chose, of course, Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.”  With a little help from Mr. iPad, Jacob gave such a tender rendition that I found myself saying, “I’ll never let go, Jack.

Big Daddy J

Sometimes I get super prepared for quiz because I love picking out the right song to play, based on theme and questions, between rounds.  Like the time I played "California" by Phantom Planet after a question about the OC.  Tonight Round 7 was all about A Capella tv show themes.  What's the perfect song for that?  If you say "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" by Rockapella, buy yourself a drink because you're right.  It was lined up in the playlist, ready to go.  However, due to a series of unfortunate events, I didn't get to review Round

I'm just a normal dude. I work in a cube, have a degree in theatre directing and management from Murray State University, and LOVE pro-wrestling. Nothing special. I spent a year working on a cruise ship. Because of that I have seen many Caribbean vacation spots. Apart from that I've seen London, UK and Dublin, IE.

Where in the World?
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

I played a lot of PC games when I was young. Some of them, like Doom and Castle Wolfenstein, I was much to young to be playing. But one of my favorites was always "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?". What child of the late 80's and early 90's wasn't a fav of that game? No one even cared that it was an educational game hidden in disguise. I personally credit the game with my vast knowledge of geography and history, to this day.   It was like playing Carmen Sandiego gave me permission to be a complete nerd. It was ok to just learn as much shit as possible. After that I started reading anything I could get my hands on, to just keeping learning as much as possibly could.

What do you put in these spaces? I'm a 26 year old Hoosier, still trying to survive in Texas. I like pizza, sleeping, having fun, breathing, and other things like that. I do not like socks/shoes, brussel sprouts, anything from Wisconsin, and people who are dicks to other people. I never grew out of my dinosaur phase.
