Killing Machine
AaronMorse

Welcome back to our third quiz at the amazing Virtual Sports in Tukwila.  For the first time regular team member and loyal quizzer Marisa made it out to this new quiz.  The manager was super cool and gave her a quick tour and showed her the awesome all metal CO2 powered laser tag guns, the armory and the prep room.  She was skeptical at first, but as soon as she saw how awesome and  huge this place is she was sold.  It was a little disturbing when they handed her a machine gun (she clearly knows her way around a gun) and she got this weird murderous look in her eye.  I absolutely want her to be on my team when we play next week.  Here's

Man! It is cold as a nipple that isn't being massaged into rosy tumescence out there! I'm so glad I'm going to Los Angeles tomorrow... through Monday! 77 degrees tomorrow! I'm packing shorts, y'all. But before that, we must recap this week's pub quiz at Fado Irish Pub! What did we learn?   - Zika has reached the U.S., and the WHO is in a tizzy... not The Who. Yaaaaaaaaaooooooooooow!   - Smashing Pumpkins are going on the road with Liz Phair this summer! Save your money. I saw the Smashing Pumpkins live 10 years ago, and even that was 10 years too late.   - "Drift Away"

Hey, everybody!

I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, I've been to 45 states, and I saw Letterman's "Late Show" live 20 times before it ended.

I'm on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm, and Fado Irish Bar Thursdays at 8pm!

Night Numero Dos!
AlisonRudd

Ahoy! I seriously hope you are all past the point in your lives where roommates are a necessity. I've been having a real bang up week - had an extra day off work, got college drunk at a toga party for the first time in ages, got a pedi - what could go wrong?! Oh yeah, my roommate could go wrong. Sitting on my duff Monday night watching American Ninja Warrior and I just hear WHACKWHACKWHACK from the living room. I do my best to ignore it and pretend that she's just tenderizing A BUNCH of chicken. Unfortunately that was not the case. I walk out to make some dinner and our living room has absolutely exploded with framed photos of her on vacation and more "Live

Iowa's Small White Caucus
Jim

So, the Iowa Caucuses were this week. I don't know why they don't just cast ballots like normal fucking people. Get your shit together Iowa. I'm just kidding. You do you, Iowa. Also, those six coin flips weren't a big deal so everybody can stop losing their shit. Congrats to Victor-peas-us Broncos and Please Clap for Jeb on their respective first and second place victories last night. Although Please Clap for Jeb was a good name, my favorite from last night is still Sock Puppet Blowjob.   Here's what we learned. -Hilldawg supporters

Wherein Team AJ chats about Meow meow meows
Team AJ

Angela: Reba is so spoiled. And kinda pushy. It's like she's psychic and knows exactly when I'm pouring a glass of milk. She wakes up out of a dead sleep and immediately tries to stick her face in my glass to drink it. Of course I let her. She doesn't drink much of it, at least. Jeremy: She's going to keep doing it because you keep letting her :) I don't blame you, she's cute. She was really insistent this morning that if she didn't get cuddled, carried, and played with, the world was going to end. Angela: lol...yeah, she's quite the princess needing ALL the attention. Jeremy: Speak of the devil, I hear a meow, meow, meowing under my chair. No food from me, bwahahaha Angela:

What a Night? What a Country!
Nicknames are Hard

In 1600, Johannes Kepler arrived in Prague to collaborate with Tycho Brahe. (Kepler had left Graz the previous month, on 1 Jan 1600.) Kepler provided mathematical calculation skills to make sense of the wealth of data that Brahe had accumulated as an enthusiastic and accomplished astronomical observer. Longomontanus had already arrived at Benárky Castle. Brahe gave Kepler the task of determining a way to reliably compute the orbit of Mars. Longomontanus was assigned to revise lunar theory until he departed on 4 Aug 1600. Meanwhile, what Kepler initially thought would take eight weeks, actually extended to eight years’ work. Brahe died 24 Oct 1601, having bequeathed his data, records

Though the eve was chilly in Richland as we made our way into the Emerald, the carnal heat and fiery exploits certainly raised our temperatures. Boom, that was sex in a sentence. Let’s ooze further into the prurience of our quizfull natures and memories. I can’t help but wonder if our winners The Randy Santorums found their concupiscence by Watching Taint Dry. No one will ever know if it was the eponymous action of just watching taint take second. All we do know is that their libidinousness was not solely contained to our top two

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

It's Past Someone's Bedtime....
Mandrew

The subject of politics, when taken seriously, almost never has an amicable outcome when mixed with alcohol and crowds.  Despite amazingly terrible team names and sardonic banter, The Home Plate kept the actual onslaught of a full-fledged political fight at bay.  It may very well have been the crazily offensive team names, but possibly the general awesomeness of our regular teams keeping the atmosphere elevated and jovial. Along with finding the ONE other Dream Theater fan in Fort Worth, TX, The Home Plate saw another great night of awful cover songs and incredibly addictive Pub Quiz.  All the teams kept each other on their toes throughout the game and completely ignored

QuizMaster Ryan coming in off the bench tonight, to give Kari a spell.  Thank you Geeks in attendance for working with me. The one Where Chandler and Joey Double-Team Ross was a delight to read tonight, fan-fic smut goes well with dinner and drinks.  TIL what an atomic typo is, hopefully I've made on within.  My commencement speaker in college was the guy who invented spell check. After the show I went for a very tasty burger with Sriracha, Peanut Butter, and Bacon.  Good fries.  The very dangerous Hopslam on tap.  Living large tonight, fortunately the CBC has some very desirable entr�es even on their late-night menu.

Facts suck. Here is a bunch of shit that absolutely didn't happen last night, in an order: Bonus Questions were answered with a minimum of dancing and invasion of my personal space. Turns out Third Eye Blind isn't as popular as I would have thought. Shots were consumed in a responsible, moderate manner. No one knew what "A.C." stood for in A.C. Slater. Please Clap were well-loved champions. No one took team pictures again. I remember other things. Fucks were given. Next week, wild card! Let's F up some tacos, yo.

She's So Hiiiiiiigh
Ptera Dactyl

Wow, guys, last night was great. Every night that we play is great, though. So many faces I hadn’t seen in a while. I love when you guys pop in and out of my life/the bar. Tell me about all of your adventures. We had a sweet tiebreaker round between Körps Fücher (sweet name, by the way) and The Sofa King Awesomes that was tiiiiight. Homegirl from The Sofa King Awesomes just obliterated the opposition, getting 4/5 lightning questions, which are, by design, much harder than normal quiz. Bravo, doll.

Then the son, Kronos, from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father's members and cast them away to fall behind him...and a white foam spread around them from the immortal flesh...and came forth an awful and lovely goddess, and grass grew up about her beneath her shapely feet. Her gods and men call Ptera Dactyl

Butter! (It's not just to describe your girlfriend's face any more.)
Major Tom

You probably noticed that Scorekeeper Dini was not at Quiz last night. Or, alternatively, maybe you thought that Dini had put on a ton of weight, lost most of her hair, and got really ugly in the space of a week. For those of you who thought that, you were wrong. That was Caribbean Joe on scorekeeping duties last night. Dini was in a car accident, so I looked for a sub at the last minute. Joe stepped up to the plate. While I appreciate Joe helping out, it was also an opportunity for a couple of firsts. It was the first time my scorekeeper has ever yelled, "Up yours!" to the Quizzers. It was also the first time that a team name was changed at each scoring break to add a vulgar joke about me

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

My Cat The A-Hole
RobotNarwhal

I’m sure I was not the only one who walked outside to more snow falling (about 2 more inches during quiz on top of the 14-20” around town), looked at the sky, shook a fist, and cried?  Because I am so done with the snow.  Not just because (I think you all know) I hate snow, but because MY CAT IS BEING AN ASSHOLE, YOU GUYS. My cat, Jax, is normally a sweet lovey manx.  But he is an outdoor kitty; he normally goes out during the day, and returns in the evening after doing *whatever cats do.  So, because of the snow, I’ve kept him indoors most of the last four days.  And in the last four days, he’s managed to do all of the following:

Jessica has two of the greatest jobs ever: QMMF, and drinking beer for a living.  We are not even kidding.  She also enjoys movies, Science Fiction, rock and roll, taking longs walks on any available tropical beach, and slowly vying for world domination.  She's an irritating optimist with an existential bend, and is a fan of tattoos that include punctuation marks and/or robots.  She has an unhealthy obsession with whales, and although she kinda prefers humpbacks, narwhals are pretty damn cute.  And don't even get her started on belugas.

There Can Only Be One
Zachary

Last night's quiz asked a lot about cooking, politics, and highly adult situations, which flummoxed our contests time and again. Only two perfect rounds were scored all night. It was topsy turvy night that saw KNK lead at our first scoring break, then the Angry Samoans took the lead by our scoring break, only to see the other two teams make a final push toward the top for the final two rounds. In the end Quiz In My Pants edged out The Lovable Scamps by a single point.  Throughout the night, many questions needed repeats for a particularly tough set of questions throughout the eight
