Well, not really. I have since recovered. But I sure as hell did get waste-faced last Saturday. I built a Viking beer helmet, then had the not so genius idea of putting different drinks in the different cup holders. Harpoon Munich Dark and Angry Orchard Cider? Not really that good of a mix.

But what is a good mix is the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz and HOBY. Last night I hosted my first ever Quiz for a Cause to support HOBY. Seven of the 11 teams paid into the fundraiser meaning last night’s winning team took home an additional $35 in cash. Thanks to your support, the organization raised close to $400! Three Delights in a Nest took home the top prize while Kickhop and Go Green or Go Home tied for second. A digits of pi contest broke that tie, giving Kickhop the second-place prize.

The scores were super close, and some smarter jokering would have altered the standings. With an extra 16-point round thrown in there, the Geeks had more opportunities to max out on their points. The teams were hit or miss on their knowledge of TV episode titles, and almost all hits on their ability to shrink famous people’s faces. Surprisingly, many teams dropped the ball on the Game of Thrones character names round. Admittedly, the Sansa question was a stretch, but everyone should have known the Samwell question.

Thanks to everyone for coming out and playing the quiz. And thanks to all who supported the fundraiser. Make sure you like this blog and tag yourselves in the photos on Facebook. You can find them at facebook.com/geekshongkong. Have great weeks and see you next time!

I don’t understand why 20- and 30-somethings, who are unmarried and don’t own a house, pay someone to do their taxes for them. All you are doing is copying one number from one piece of paper to another. How much did you make in wages? See box 2 of your W-2. Box 2 says $XX,XXX.XX. Write that in box 7 of the 1040. Do you have kids? No? Are you in charge of any other human beings? No? Then put a 1 in box 6d. Are you paying off student loans? Then put your student loan interest in box 33. No medical expenses? No charitable donations (you stingy bastard)? Take the standard deduction of $6,100. It’s that easy.

Last night’s quiz was a test in short term memory retention. I barely finished reading the answer to R2Q5 (Woody Guthrie), when I had a question in round four asking about the folkie who discovered that this land was his land. You should have all gotten that one right. And on the topic of embarrassing wrong answers, many of you said that Muhammad Ali fought Evander Holyfield in the 1971 “Fight of the Century.” For real guys, Holyfield was only 9 years old when that happened.

As for the outcome of the quiz, The C U Next Tuesdays returned to the winners’ circle with their 74-point performance. After them were Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins with 70 points. Honorable mentions go to US Air Brazilian Landing Strip who hoped that the email bonus prize from my box would be a toy plane, E-bola blah blah blah whose 13 jokered points on the final round was not enough to overcome their measly 8 points on round two, and Lanthanides and Actinides who rocked the second round, but stumbled on rounds four through six, getting just 4 points in each one.

Next Tuesday we are doing a Quiz for a Cause! Supporting the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Foundation, all teams have the option of paying $5 per player to support HOBY. Then, the winning team will get $5 back for each team that donated. So if 10 teams participate, the winning team gets $50. Click the like button over to the left, enjoy the marathon, stay safe, and I’ll see you next time.

Miss me again? Last week I took a trip to Houston, TX, where I enjoyed their beers, food, baseball, museums, and much more. One of my activities out in Houston was a campout weekend with 350 of the craziest, awesomest people I’ve ever met. I could not walk past anyone at this campout without having that person introduce him/herself to me and ask me a few questions about myself. Strangers talking to strangers? Such a foreign concept to this native Bostonian. Anyways, it didn’t take long for absolute strangers to come up to me and say, “So you’re the one with three testicles, right?” Fack, news traveled fast down there.

But a lesson based on a thing I learned. When walking through a Texas campsite, make sure you’re wearing something on your feet, preferably sneakers. I was talking to someone when all of a sudden I felt several pin pricks on my right foot. I looked down and immediately realized I was standing on a fire ant hill. Dang it those little pieces of shit hurt. I didn’t want to swat them away with my hand because they’d just get on my hand, so I grabbed my left flip flop and started whacking away at them while hopping around so as to not put my now bare left foot on the ground. Unfortunately, the little buggars don’t flick off so easily. Just like when you’ve got a booger on your finger tip and every time you flick at it, it just transfers to another finger, these ants just kept going from my right foot to my left flip flop and back to my right foot with every swatting motion. I finally recovered with only about 6-8 bites, but not before providing some entertainment for the locals who knew to wear to close-toed sneakers.

So back to last night. We had a quiz, and winning it was James Franco’s Prom After Party, who did not prematurely ejokerate—like some teams did—to finish with 70 points. Second went to I Thought Mickey Rooney was Already Dead.

I was very disappointed that more of you didn’t get the Good Will Hunting question in round seven. They filmed the “Do you like apples” scene three fucking doors down from the Hong Kong! That should be mandatory film viewing material for everyone who sets foot in the People’s Republic of Cambridge. I was also dismayed by your answers to the next question in that round, The Boondock Saints. Again, something that you all should take the time to watch. Think Dexter, but with Daryl Dixon pairing up with another Irish dude, an unkempt mafia wannabe, and Billy Connolly to shoot up bad guys. Oh, and Willem Dafoe absolutely steals the show with his performance.

That’s it for now. Like this blog. Save the date for our Star Wars quiz. And say hi to me sometime (you won’t have to spend $15 to send me a Facebook message).
